John Harrison, 57, born in Allendale parish, but lived at Hawkuplee from the age of 3 to 15. At the age of 8 drove cattle and sheep up Hawkuplee, past Millstone Dyke to Carrier Hill, and turned them out to go where they would. Used to cast peats near Sandyford. He knew Wm. Johnson of Grisley Row, and that WJ and other Allendale tenants used to graze animals on Hareshaws and cast peats there.
Whitfield boundary dispute witness on behalf of Sir Walter Blackett. See PDF of entire series of depositions for background to the case, and letters from Joseph Richmond to Sir Walter Blackett, 22 Nov and 2 Dec 1757 for context to the taking of the depositions. The Allendale tenants named by Blackett’s witnesses are all mentioned by the witnesses on behalf of William Ord, Lord of the Manor Whitfield, as having had their stock hounded off the Common, or impounded, and having had their peat stacks burnt. ‘Grisley Row’ is the modern Keirsleywell Row.
