On Priory House, Redmire, North Yorkshire:
On "The Swan" near Redmire, North Yorkshire:
In a holiday cottage in Harmby (a mile and a half from Leyburn.
NRY). This cottage is part of a converted stable/barn complex built in
1841. The date stone is a bit worn but clearly shows the name
'Thomas I'Anson'. A beam in the adjoining cottage has Thomas's
name carved in it along with that of one I. L. Hampton. The cottages
are about 10 to 20 yards down Harmby Bank, off the A684 (opposite the Pheasant
pub) marked with a millstone carved: 'Harmby Holiday Cottages'. [submitted

In Kendall Church: (Brass, Bellingham chapel N). To M. William
Ianson of Highgate, Kendal, Founder of Iansonís Charity, Who was buried
Decr. 4th. He was a man full of good works & alms deeds which he did.
The trustees of his charity in 1868, though sensible that the good deeds
of Mr. Ianson will outlive either marble or brass, have nevertheless thought
meet to renew this simple tribute to his memory; the original memento having
long disappeared from the church.
