Long Marston

[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]

"LONG MARSTON, a parish, 7 miles W. of York, 6 of Tadcaster, and 7 from Wetherby. Near this village is the field called "Marston Moor": the tomb of the royalists' hopes, in the contest between Charles I. and the Parliament on second of July, 1644. The church, which is dedicated to All Saints (see Churches for photograph), is an ancient rectory, and in the year 1400 a commission was granted to the parishioners, because their old church was ruinous and far distant from their habitations, to translate the same from that place to another chapel in the same parish, and there to build themselves a new parish church, provided that they kept enclosed the cemetery where the old church stood. There is at Marston a free school, endowed with £10. per annum. Pop. 388."


"ANGRAM, in the parish of Long Marston; 4 miles NNE. of Tadcaster, and 7 from York. Population, 66. "


"HUTTON WANDESLEY, in the parish of Long Marston; 6 miles N. of Tadcaster. Pop. 125."
