About 1620 the sanative virtues of the Spa- well were discovered by Mrs. Anne Farrow, who " sometimes walked along the shore, and observing the stones over which the water passed to have received a russet colour, and finding it to have an acid taste different from the common springs, and to receive a purple tincture from galls, thought it probably might have a medical property."- "The Ports, Harbours, Watering-places and Picturesque Scenery of Great Britain Vol. 1", William Finden.
