Low Furness is full of antiquities including Swarthmoor Hall home of the Fells which played a significant part in the development of the Society of Friends. The Hall is plain in style with Tudor or Jacobean features but probably dates from the period of Parliament government under Oliver Cromwell George Fox and Margaret Fell are justly famous, this book looks at the other people who owned or lived at the hall particularly Judge Fell and his relatives and William Lindow the slave trader.

The author, feeling that some previous accounts rather lacked evidence for their various assertions, has done his best to find contemporary evidence for all he has to say.
