Excerpt from The History Topography of the Townships of Little Timble, Great Timble: And the Hamlet of Snowden in the West Riding of the County of York

My reasons for writing this minute piece of history and topography, treating of a district so small, and apparently so insignificant, as the Timbles and Snowden, may be briefly stated as follows: - A desire to put on record something of the history of the village of Great Timble, which has lately been so highly favoured as to become possessed of a free school and library, the munificent gift of a gentleman who can possibly have no other object in view than the mental and moral improvement of the villagers - a possession of which many a place with ten times its population and importance might be justly proud. Such gifts are not of momentary importance; they have an influence extending into future ages, and men and women yet unborn may bless the generous donor. Such actions need no eulogium from me, they speak for themselves with a voice far more distinct and emphatic than mine; yet, the simple recital of such actions may induce other wealthy men to "go and do likewise."

Another reason, or perhaps an ambition, was to unravel the mystery of the building of Swinsty Hall - that lonely antique gem of the Washburn valley - to test the legend of its foundation, and trace the line of its real builders and owners; and in this object I think I have succeeded.

One more reason was to perpetuate the memory of the residence of Edward Fairfax, the Elizabethan poet, at Newhall, in Little Timble, before even the traditions attached to his name and fame have passed away.
