Dear Roni,

Not a lot of information I am afraid but I looked at the last eight census records for the UK and came up with the following but bear in mind that the census lists the occupants not necessarily the actual owner.
All relate to the Hall unless otherwise stated.

1841 - Augustus Hilliary
1851 - Henry I. Christian
1861 - William Poole / Betty Fletcher / John Nicolson / Mary Allwork / John Poole
1871 - John R Beadle
1881 - Joseph Bell (Gardens) / Benjamin Wood (Hall Farm)
1891 - No record
1901 - John Mcdonald & John Bell (Ewanrigg Farm) / John Lee ( Hall Farm)
1911 - William Kitson Ellwood / Joseph Bell (Gardens)

Regards,

fifthwheel

This is very interesting. The 1861 census has John Nicholson as the head of Ewanrigg Hall. His daughter was Louisa Jane who had the great misfortune of meeting and marrying one of my ancestors, Leonard Chambers Collins. He treated her very badly, conned her out of her inheritance and left the family destitute. They were divorced and he died in a Wormwood Scrubs prison where he was serving 10 years hard labour. John Nicholson wa the proprietor of a coal mine. They are not living there in 1871, I think by then he had died.

This does not help your search but it just shows that it is a small world.
