"Everton Parish comprises the two townships of Everton and Scaftworth, the former of which contains about 3,521 acres, and the latter 1,049a3r 34p of land, of the rateable value of £5,500. The whole parish contains a population of 888 souls. The common land in Everton was enclosed in 1760, and in Scaftworth in 1773. The rectorial tithes of the new enclosures in Everton township were commuted for an allotment of 225a 2r 8p given to Lord Charles Cavendish who was then the impropriator. At the same time the vicarial tithes of the whole parish were redeemed by two allotments of 90 acres in Everton, and 15 acres in Scaftworth, besides ten acres of old glebe. The great tithes are still paid on all the old enclosures in the parish, and also on the new enclosures in Scaftworth. William Wells, Esq. of Stockwith, is now the impropriator. The charities belonging to the parish are £1 6s 8d to the poor of Everton, and 13s 4d to those of Scaftworth, paid out of Stonehills Farm; an annuity of 10s out of an estate belonging to J. Walker Esq., and 5s yearly left by Robert Ducklin in 1721, out of a house belonging to the vicar, for the poor of Everton; and £100, left in 1800 by Elizabeth Ella, who directed half of the interest to be given to poor married lying-in women, and the remainder to be paid for the education of poor girls of Everton, where a school has been built by subscription." [WHITE's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]
