About Richard Musgrave

Edenhall, Cumbria:

The little village was home to the Musgrave family, subject of a ballad by Longfellow. According to Longfellow, the House of Musgrave was doomed if a 'fairy cup' in their possession was broken. The cup, believed to be 13th century Persian, is now in a museum in London, and the house is destroyed. The parish church is Norman, built on Saxon foundations, and several Musgrave monuments can be found in the interio
