    In the chancel is a lengthy inscription, commemorative of Norreys Fynes, Esq., of Whitehall, in the adjoining parish of Martin. He was grandson of Sir Henry Clinton, eldest son of Henry, Earl of Lincoln, by his second wife, daughter of Sir Richard Morrison, and mother of Francis, Lord Norreys, afterwards Earl of Berkshire. He was a non-juror. He died January 10th, 1735-6 aged 74. There is a murial tablet to the memory of the Rev. Arthur Rockliflfe, who died in 1798 ; another to Charles Pilkington, Esq., who died in 1798, and Abigail, his wife, who died in 1817.
    In the reign of Elizabeth a family of Eastwoods resided here, since the name of Andrew Eastwood, of Roughton, appears in the list (published by T. C. Noble) of those gentry who contributed £2.^ to the Armada Fund. Other documents shew that at different periods the hall has been occupied by members of various county families, as Fynes (already named), Wichcote, Heneage, Dymoke, Pilkington, and Beaumont.
