The Hornby Castle Dispute. The story of an extraordinary legal case. John Marsden was a mentally retarded Lancashire gentleman, looked after by his aunt.

When John Marsden finally died, his will effectively left Hornby Castle to the steward. The will was then contested by the heir at law basing his claim on the incapacity of his cousin to understand and therefore endorse a complex will... a fascinating story.
