The Ancient Parish of DRYPOOL
[Description(s) edited mainly from various 19th century sources by Colin Hinson. © 2010]
[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]
"DRYPOOL, a parish in the wapentake and liberty of Holderness; on the eastern
bank or the river Hull, and is considered a part or Kingston upon Hull. Its
population amounts to 1409. Near to this place is supposed to have stood the
village of Frismeck, swallowed up by the inundations of the Humber. The church
is now rebuilding; the windows and arches of the old structure are carefully
preserved, and the new ones worked from the same patterns and mouldings, so as
to perpetuate the style of the old church, which is about the year 1300. The
patron of this parochial curacy is William Wilberforce, Esq. and the church is
dedicated to St Peter."
"SOUTHCOATES, in the parish of Drypool, wapentake and liberty of Holderness; ¾
mile NE. of Drypool, 2 miles NE. of Hull. Pop. 798."
