Interesting. Is Upper Shibden Hall a grand house of some sort?

It was two houses! The original is was altered and is now the ruin called Lower Shibden Hall (Sir Thomas Browne is reputed to have stayed there)! The one mentioned there is a 'modern' building which took the name, it started out as a normal large house like many of the time with three windows on each side, but in the 1860's a link and tower were added and a lodge was built at the main entrance! A photo of this Upper Shibden Hall is on here, photographed in the snow, and the lodge was just recently posted! :-)

It's at Catherine Slack, Queensbury (the house)! I think he might have died at Wood Hall, Hilgay in Norfolk! His father, also Michael, did die at Upper Shibden Hall in 1872. The house is a ruin these days!

You should write a book! You're getting to be a regular Dalesman Jr. when it comes to voluminous knowledge of the history of the area.
