Transcript \ 1 male; in default of such, to William Fauquier, Esq., whose son William sold it to the Honourable John Smyth, the grandfather of the present possessor, J. G. Smyth, Esq."* From a marble monument, erected to her memory in the church of Ledsham, we learn that " Dame Mary Bolles," who was created a baronetess in her own right, "departed this mortal life at Heath Hall, the 5th day of May, in the year of our Lord 1662, in her 81st year." Tradition affirms, that previously to her death "she left strict injunctions that the room in which she breathed her last should be walled up for ever." If common rumour speak truth, this injunction was scrupulously observed for a period of fifty years after her decease. It was subsequently opened; and such was the effect produced upon the departed lady, that, the villagers say, she has never been able to rest in her grave since. The lovers of the marvellous may give what credit they please to a story which seems interwoven with the very history of the ^lace: we will hope that the growth of intelligence among us (since it is a powerful antagonist to superstitious credulity) will speedily efface the impression which such idle tales are calculated to make upon weak and uneducated minds. * History of Wakefield and its Antiquities, p. 141.
