‘Every child yet believes in the story of the subterraneous passage running from the Priory to Plantation-field in Toccotes. Midway in the dismal pathway is an enormous chest of gold, guarded by a raven or crow, who keeps incessant watch over the precious contents. Only once was the treasure invaded by a person who hoped to appropriate some of the ingots; but when he reached the box, its guardian, the raven, suddenly became transformed into his Satanic Majesty, who belaboured the intruder with such terrible severity, and otherwise excited such a dreadful fright, that he nor any other person ever ventured within the precincts afterward’. J.W. Ord
