Canon James Raine, in his account (YAJ, Volume 1, published 1870, pages 127-131),
"A NOTICE OF HENRY JENKINS, THE YORKSHIRE CENTENARIAN",
concludes his article:
?The chief residence of the Wastells was in the village of Scorton. According to the traditions of the place, the old house has long been haunted by a stately dame in a rustling dress, who bears the name of Lady Tancred. She was the wife of Sir Richard Tancred, and died on the first of April, 1665. Her first husband was John Wastell of Scorton, soldier and lawyer, for he was Recorder of Richmond and a Colonel in the service of Parliament. He died in 1659 aet. 66. His widow, if the popular belief were true, has been in a state of unrest for more than two centuries."
