Next to the Bradwells, the Marshalls are the oldest family in the locality, and they can beast an unbroken descent of at least 600 years. They were among the first Foresters; they rebelled against the bad old forest laws, cleared the first patches of land, built some of the first houses; for several centuries ranked amongst the principal families of the Peak ; and they were often involved in litigation with people of greater power than themselves, who were attempting to take the common lands to which the people were entitled. The principal seat of this distinguished family was at "The Butts," between the Bagshawe Cavern and Outland Head. Here they had a large hall, not a vestige of which now remains, but there are traces on every hand of the former splendour of the home of the family. The houses close by are known as "Hall Barn," indeed the lands were in the hands of Elias Marshall when he died in 1768, and left an enclosure, the rent of which was to pay for the education of poor children. The family were very numerous, and had several residences. One of these was at the foot of Smithy Hill. It was in their occupation 200 years ago, but was soon afterwards converted into farm buildings, and about ten years ago these were, demolished and a new house, "North View," built on the site. To mention the various members of this distinguished family through six hundred years would be impossible, but in the fifteenth or sixteenth centuries, they ranked among the principal families of the Peak, and their daughters married into other famous families of the Peak. Their armoury is among that of the High Peak gentry, and their crest was a man in armour proper holding in his hand a truncheon.

note: Harbottle Castle is in Northumberland. It was taken over by Henry VIII in 1546.
Built by the Umfraville family to assist in securing the border against Scottish expansionism, the castle was attacked on numerous occasions prompting regular upgrades which converted it into a substantial fortress. During the reign of Henry VIII it became the residence of Margaret Tudor, dowager Queen of Scotland, during the troubled minority of James V.
"Sr Thomas Harbottell of Harbottell Castell" may refer to Sir Thomas de Umfreville (c.1329-1387) Harbottle Castle, Northumberland.
