Now that he did not have to spend much time in the Brewery, he gave up his country house in Hampstead and moved to Cromer, on the north coast of Norfolk. Hannah’s sister Priscilla, in the last stages of consumption, came to live with them. Priscilla was a Quaker minister, a great preacher and a woman of great godliness; Buxton held her in high esteem.
In 1827 the owner of Cromer Hall wanted to knock it down and build something new, so Fowell had to move to Northrepps Hall
This Hall was built just after Buxton left for Northrepps Hall.
