The Mance House Anthorn - a Memory of Wigton.

My great-grandparents lived at the Mance House, Anthorn, Cumberland, they were the Marshall family. Alfred Bailey Marshall was a lay preacher there from about 1879 till about 1900, he was married to Emily Willoughby. They had quite a big family, my grandmother (Grace) being one of them. I have seen the house a few times over the years, the chapel is no longer a church. A guy from Liverpool brought the property and renovated it (to quite a high standard, may I add) but I don't think he owns it now. Peter Bell from Roby, Merseyside.
