"ACASTER SELBY, in the parish of Stillingfleet; 8 miles S. of York. This village is pleasantly situated on the banks of the Ouse, on which river the Steam Packets, and others, pass and repass to Selby, Gainsbro' and Hull, tending considerably to enliven the scene. Here is a Free School, with an endowment of £7. 7s. per annum, arising out of the fee-farm rents, aided also by voluntary subscriptions of the inhabitants of the township. This place was formerly part of the possession of the Abbot of Selby, and from thence its name is derived. Population, 188."
