      What the intentory, taken on 3 August 1584, of the goods and chattels of John Scotson of Abbot Park, does reveal is a real clue (not fully appreciated for some time) to the mysterys as to how his descendant Thomas Scotson c.1628-1691 became a comparitively wealthy man, not a 'millionaire' but still rich enough to send his three sons to school (almost certainly Hawkshead Grammar School) and the young one, on to university.

      In January 1681Thomas had bought a messuage & tenement in Linda-in-Furness, from John Benson for £100, and on June 18 the transaction was passed in the Manor Court of Furness by the Steward there, one Curwen Rawlinson. And in July 1688 he appears to have sold the same to William Mason
