The vicissitudes of families is exemplified in the history of the ancient house of Lowes,long established and now extinct,in the western part of Northumberland. Ridley Hall, their principal seat, is situated in the township of Ridley, at the point were the united streams of the East and West Allen, after running their course through the glorious woods of Staward, fall into the all-absorbing Tyne. The estate was part of the possessions of the Ridleys of Willimoteswick, and passed into the hands of the Lowes family about the beginning of the seventeenth century. Disjointed, with manu missing links, as the pedigree of the Loweses appears to be, there is\evidence that the family owned landed estate in the neighbourhood from a remote period.
