 Additional Notes Brian Gaunt quotes: "We know little of John Cockell, the house was known as Cockleshell home and is shown on old (1837) maps. My ancestors (Stones) were lead miners who lived here. The only reference I have found to a John Cockell in that year is as a steward (rent collector) in Wensleydale. That may be a link."
