Does anyone know the circumstances of the Cunliffes' removal from the Hollins, near Burnley, and their installation in Wycoller Hall? The Hollins is said to have been sequestrated from Nicholas Cunliffe during the Commonwealth, and Wycoller is said to have been passed to the Cunliffes by marriage about that time. I think my ancester James Cundiff or Cunliffe (born in Tonghill, later seems to have resided in Billington) may have been the one to get Wycoller by marriage, and I'm wondering whether he wasn't the one who is is said to have murdered his wife and become the ghost of Wycoller. He himself is recorded as dying in Wycoller Hall:
Here's a link to the Hollins info:
Does anyone know why the Hollins was sequestrated from the Cunliffes? And from the Hollins, did some of the Cunliffes go to Ilkley?
A sketch of the Cundiff/Cunliffe coat of arms can be seen at:
There is also one for Cunliffe-Owens on the bookmarks page of the same site.
