Cruel Judge Jeffrey Pyncheon (the Colonel's mid-19th c. descendant) is no better than his ancestor, and torments his cousins Hepzibah and Clifford, who live in the House of Seven Gables, to get hold of a missing deed to disputed land. Only the curse, and the young daguerrotypist Holgrave, can thwart the Judge's plans.
