Walker 
Ferrand
, s.p. of Harden Grange. After his death, his nephew said, "Of my uncle's character, temper and disposition I scarcely feel that I am an impartial judge. The subject is one which I always approach with great tenderness, lest I should be thought to say something uncharitable. That he possessed many estimable qualities cannot be doubted. I willingly assume that he was a most affectionate son, an abiding, faithful friend, hospitable in the extreme, warm-hearted where he inclined, and in his social intercourse esteemed, as men of fortune, with frank, agreeable manners, generally are; but, withal, he was a man of imperious temper, self-will, and would not endure that his opinions should be thwarted, or his judgement questioned. The consequence was that he often found himself, - especially towards the close of life, estranged from neighbours and relatives with whom he had been long previously on terms of friendship and affection.... As a remarkable instance of the imperious way in which he asserted his power, and ignored the feelings of others, I may refer to the circumstance, that when he experienced, upon his second marriage, some difficulty respecting a pew, as if by magic a new Chapel was raised and appended to the ancient Parish Church; and with such rapidity were the works executed that it was only when the foundation was being dug, and the dead disturbed, that the feelings of the people were aroused and with some difficulty a riot prevented." Of Harden Grange, mgistrate and deputy lieutenant for the west Riding of Yorkshire., MP for Tralee.
