The old Stone House, now nearly in ruins, owing, we believe, to some misunderstanding between the claimants to it, was a most substantially built mansion. The side and front walls of the drawing and dining rooms are solid stone, panelled and moulded; and there was also some ancient tapestry here. There are no records of the date when it was built, nor of the builder. It was long used for a lodging-house, and for several seasons it was occupied by Sir Philip Francis, so well known in the literary world.
