Lithograph with letterpress, scarce with very large margins. Sheet size: 435 x 330mm (17 x 13").
Swarthmoor Hall is a mansion in Swarthmoor, in the Furness area of Cumbria in North West England. It was the home of Thomas and Margaret Fell, the latter an important player in the founding of the Religious Society of Friends (Quaker) movement in the 17th century. Founder of the Quaker movement, George Fox (1624 - 1691) visited the Hall in 1652 when Thomas Fell was travelling as a judge. However, Fox had an audience with Margaret Fell who became interested in his new doctrines. When Thomas Fell returned home, he was persuaded by his wife and some others to listen to Fox, who successfully appealed to his pro-Parliamentary sentiments. Thomas Fell was never totally convinced by Fox's religious teachings, but he did allow his home to be used as a meeting house for the early Friends. They did so until 1691 when a meeting house was built nearby. A speech made by Fox in Kingston-Upon-Thames in 1686, outlining his ideas, is printed below the image. After the death of her husband Margaret Fell married George Fox, who between touring the world with his ideas, would live at Swarthmore.
