Moresby name connects with a settler as early as 1150 taken from the ancient name “Morris”. The oldest part of the house has a spiral stone staircase, an ancient Pele tower. In medieval times they acquired large estates through conquest and marriage. *Christopher de Moresby fought at Agincourt, honoured with other knights by King Henry. Future Moresby’s swelled the family fortunes, vast estates and rights to 22 manors. Anne, Sir Christopher’s* great granddaughter was sole heiress. She married Sir Francis Weston who was famously executed by King Henry VIII, along with Queen Anne Boleyn. Moresby Hall was sold to The Fletchers, a local family and they owned Moresby for a 250 year period. William Fletcher entertained Mary, Queen of Scots during her sojourn in Cockermouth, prior to her imprisonment at Carlisle. He reputedly provided a length of cloth for a gown, as he was shocked at The Queen’s impoverished state. The Fletcher’s remodelled the front façade of the Hall. Primarily this is attributed to the eminent architect Inigo Jones, from the original design around 1617. The remains of the Moresby Roman Fort can be seen in the field adjacent to the Hall.
