Nether Poppleton

[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]

"NETHER POPPLETON, (or Lower Poppleton), a parish, 4 miles NW. of York, is pleasantly situated on the banks of the river Ouse. The Church is a vicarage, dedicated to All-Saints, in the deanry of the Ainsty. The living is under the patronage of the Archbishop of York, the present incumbent the Rev. T. Gilpin. Here is a school and house for the master, endowed with £10. per annum, conducted upon Dr. Bell's plan. Pop. 254."


"UPPER POPPLETON, in the parishes of Nether Poppleton and York St Mary Bishophill the Younger, in the liberty of St. Peter's, 4 miles NW. of York. The lands here were formerly in the possession of the Abbot of St. Mary's, at York; given by Osbern de Arches, to that abbey, almost at its first institution. Sir Thomas Weddrington writes, that there was a Mayor of York killed at Poppleton, in the reign of king Richard II. as he conjectures, in some controversy betwixt the monks and the citizens. Here is a small chapel of ease, which has the privilege of christenings and burials, but not marriages, and a Methodist chapel. This village is pleasantly situated within one mile of the river Ouse. Population 346."
