Not saying the story is a hoax... but the Daily Mail (a British tabloid, and the source for this one) has made numerous squatter related stories, many
of which turned out to be hoaxes (like the knife-wielding Lithuanian family that squatted in a house and forced the real homeowners to flee...). Too
many "legit" (and I use that word loosely) will repeat a story like this verbatim, without verifying a thing. The "Lithuanian squatter" hoax even
had interviews and video of the "perps" - all faked.
Don't believe every tabloid "news" story...
I find the name in this case, "Robert Carr", odd - or too coincidental. Carr was a British subject from the 17th C. who, as it happens, took
possession of Sir Walter Raleigh's manor over a claim he "abandoned" it (in reality Raleigh had his claim trumped by the king who favoured Carr
Again, not saying the story is a hoax, but a British tabloid is reporting this, "Robert Carr" is a British historical figure who was famed for
"squatting" in an abandoned manor of Walter Raleigh, etc.
