John Egremont (b. 1761)[1] of Reedness Hall near Goole in Yorkshire, England married Hannah Crowther,[2] the daughter of Hannah Hall and a Mr Crowther.

Mr Crowther, (b.1730) was "a handsome young woolstapler, who was not, according to Eliza Barker, a 'finished gentleman' "

Crowther continued to favour his daughter Hannah after her marriage (rather than his step-daughter Mary Heatherington) and when he died he left his considerable estate - including the money which had come from Mr Heatherington - to the Egremont children, and nothing to the Barkers. Hannah apparently felt bad about this injustice, but could do nothing to correct it as her husband took charge of everything she had brought him, leaving her without a guinea of her own. After her death in 1827, her daughter Luisa found among her papers an urgent entreaty to do any kindness possible to any of the Barker family in order to make some reparation for the wrong Crowther had done to them. Old Crowther himself died aged eighty at the end of December 1810 during a violent thunderstorm. When his will became known, people are reputed to have said that the storm was the devil waiting for Crowther's soul.
