Two interior and one exterior view of Swarthmore Hall in Cumbria. Home to Thomas and Margaret Fell, it was visited by George Fox (1624-1691) founder of the Quaker movement, in 1652. Though Thomas Fell was not at home, Fox was entertained by Margaret Fell who became interested in his ideas. On Thomas Fell's return he too became a supporter of the movement and Swarthmore Hall became a meeting place for early memebers of the Religious Society of Friends. After the death of her husband Margaret Fell married George Fox, who between touring the world with his ideas, would live at Swarthmore.
