The Ancient Parish of BRANDESBURTON

"BRANDESBURTON, a parish in the wapentake and liberty of Holderness; 8 miles N. E of Beverley. This extensive and populous village is pleasantly situated on the high road leading from Hull to Scarborough, from which places coaches and other vehicles are passing and re-passing daily, which greatly tends to the benefit of its inhabitants There are two good inns for the accommodation of travellers A fortnight fair or market for all sorts of cattle, is held on alternate Wednesdays, which is very fully attended, a sure criterion of its rising prosperity. The church, dedicated to St Mary (see Churches for photograph), is a very ancient structure, but has suffered much from the corroding hand of time, although it has undergone several repairs, the patronage is in St. Johns College, Cambridge. The neighbouring magistrates meet here every Thursday, in a spacious room, at the Cross Keys Inn, for the administration of justice. Pop 562"
