Collinson Procter, Sir Stephen (bap. 1562, d. 1619), courtier and revenue official, eldest son of Thomas Procter (c.1535-1621), ironmaster and entrepreneur, of Friar Head, Winterburn, in the parish of Gargrave, Yorkshire, and later of Warsill near Ripon, and his first wife, Mary, daughter, according to the heraldic window in Fountains Hall, ... ------- Fountains Hall The house was built by Stephen Proctor between 1598 and 1604, partly with stone from the abbey ruins. It is an example of a late Elizabethan prodigy house, perhaps influenced by the work of Robert Smythson. After Proctor's death in 1619, Fountains Hall passed into the possession of the Messenger family, who sold it to William Aislabie of neighbouring Studley Royal 150 years later.[2] -------- The Procters of Bordley and Winterburn an extract from JW Morkill's book - The Parish of Kirkby Malhamdale An account of the Procters would be incomplete which omitted some notice of Sir Stephen Procter, the builder of Fountains Hall, who was baptised at Gargrave on 4 May 1562, the son of Thomas Procter of Frearhead. Of his early years nothing is known, but towards the end of the century, his name appears frequently as a litigant and it is from the Caesar Papers and Records of Chancery and Star Chamber cases that most of our information about his remarkable career is derived. An interesting though somewhat resentful sketch of his character and history has already been given by Walbran in Vol. II of his Memorials of Fountains Abbey (Surtees Soc.). Certainly it would seem that misfortune overtook him, if it did not overwhelm him, in his latter years. He must have married early in life and moved, apparently with his father, to Warsill, near Ripon, since, under date 4 September 1584, we find an entry of the burial of 'Thomas fil Stephani Procter generosi de . . . rsheille sepult' (Ripon Cathedral Register). Stephen's wife was Honor, the daughter of Raphe Greene, who is elsewhere described as 'one of her Majesties Musitions' (Acts of the Privy Council, 1589). There must have been a considerable family of Procters resident in Warsill at this period, since among the entries in the parish register for the period we find :Baptisms -'19 March 1603 - Tho :son of Elyas Procter de Warsell. This Elyas was presumably the younger brother of Stephen. The entry of his baptism at Gargrave on 12 March 1564, reads 'Elyas Proctor, son of Thos. Proctor of Frearhead' - -------- Baildon and the Baildons; a history of a Yorkshire manor and family p240-241 1593, July 30 — Bill of Complaint in the Court of Exchequer; Stephen Proctor, Elias Proctor and George or Gregory Pormorte, plaintiffs, Edward Cage, William Watts and Francis Wright, defendants.
