Diary of the Washburn Expedition to the Yellowstone and Firehole Rivers - Page 184


110 Washburn Yellowstone Expedition of 1870. we first discovered it. Externally it presented few indica- tions of its character as a geyser. Private Williamson, one of our escort, crawled through an aperture and looked into the discharging orifice. When afterwards, he saw it belch- ing forth a column of boiling water two feet in diameter to the height of sixty feet, and a scalding stream of two hun- dred square inches flowing from the cavern he had entered a short time before, he said that he felt like one who had narrowly escaped being summarily cooked. The Castle is on the summit of an incrusted elevation. This name was given because of its resemblance to the ruins of some old tower with its broken down turrets. The sili- cious sinter composing the formation surrounding it takes the form of small globules, resembling a ripe cauliflower, and the massive nodules indicate that at some former period the flow of water must have been much larger than at pres- ent. The jet is sixty feet high by four feet in diameter, and the vent near it, which is in angry ebullition during the eruption, constantly flows with boiling water. One of the most wonderful of the springs in this basin is that of ultra-marine hue directly in front of the Castle geyser. It is nearly round, having diameters of about twen- ty and twenty-five feet, the sides being corrugated and fun- nel-shaped, and at the depth of thirty feet opening out into a cavern of unfathomable depth, the rim of the spring hav- ing beautifully escalloped edges. It does not boil over, but a very small stream of water flows from it, and it is not …

22 SIR JOHN 2. Sir John except the heirs and those involved in the settlement of the estates. The family was 110 longer living at Little Wash- born, but had their seat thus early at Stanford. The second in the succession and heir to the estates was Sir John, known before inheriting his fathers property and titles as John de Dufford, - Dufford being a corruption of Defford, - the name coming from his estate and his resi- dence on it, though, when thus described in old documents still available, he was living in Stanford Washburn at the other end of the county from Defford and Little Wash- bourn, which were onlv half a dozen miles or so from each ' 1/ other. As Habingdon says, Englishmen in those former ages having 110 settled surnames were commonly called by their manors or mansions* and so altered their own [name] as their residence varied from place to place. John accordingly, went by the above title till his father con- firmed his heirship to the Washbourne estate, or till he came into actual possession of them in 1297 or soon after. There might be some question of identity in this and like cases; but Habingdon expressly says in this instance: John, who in his father Sir Roger de Wassebornes time was called John de Dufford, is now written …
