Elloughton

[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]

"ELLOUGHTON, a parish in the wapentake Harthill, a part in the liberty of St. Peter's; 3 miles SE. of South Cave. The church, dedicated to St. Mary, is a very Ancient Gothic structure (see Churches for photograph), of which the prebendary of Wetwang, in York cathedral is the patron and the Rev. John Overton, Jun. the vicar; here are likewise a Calvinist and a Methodist chapel. Population with Brough, 383."


"BROUGH, in the parish of Elloughton, wapentake of Harthill, & liberty of St. Peter's; ¾ mile S. of Elloughton, 3 miles SSE. of South Cave. Pop. including Elloughton, 383.

At this place is a Ferry across the Humber to Wintringham, Lincolnshire. Here the Roman road runs from Lincoln to York. This place by Horsley and others, is supposed to have been the Petvasia of Ptolemy. --Drake differs from them, but states, "that it seems to bid fair for being a Roman fortress," &c."


"WAULDBY, in the parish of Elloughton, and wapentake of Harthill; 2¼ miles ENE. of Elloughton, 4 miles E. of South Cave. Pop. 44"
