family were Quakers, and meetings were held at the house before the building
of Countersett Meeting House (qv). Dr John Fothergill, an eminent physician
and author of medical treatises, was born here in 1712 (died 1780). The
name of the house refers to the end of Semer Water, a lake, or carr, in
dialect. Bulmer, History, Topography and Directory of North Yorkshire,
(1890), p 341.
