HISTORICAL NOTE: known variously as Heath View, Earlsmead and
the Old Court House. This latter name coined as late as 1926
when the house was bought by Mr Campbell Hunter. The name
referred to the fact that during the 1850s the house was
occupied by the Dunnett Estate Office: Dunnett was the Manor
Surveyor at that period, and a seemingly spurious connection
with manorial courts (which were actually held at the original
Jack Straw's Castle) was thus stressed.
