The Drakestone

Excerpt from The Drakestone Among the commoner sort of folk, both of the town and the country, with whom my tale has to do, you will rarely find the word "belong" used as others use it; so that when it was said that the Yewdales had not originally "belonged to" the land you are to understand that what was meant was that the Yewdales had not originally owned it That later they did own it, and, as I believe, legally enough, was beyond dispute; yet there were the two meanings to the word, and of the two to take it literally was the better. And since these Yewdales, who did not belong to the land either in appearance or nature, are better worth talking about than the Drakes, who did (of whom I am one), I will set down here in the beginning the most that can be said for these latter, and so have done with it. By inherent right of Intake, part at least of the land should have remained Drakes' land, for the first John Drake - to begin somewhere, though he may have been the tenth of his line for all anybody now knows - had taken it from the barren moor.
