The Ancient Parish of EVERINGHAM

[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]

"EVERINGHAM, a parish in the wapentake of Harthill; (Everingham Park, the seat of Wm. Constable Maxwell, Esq) 5 miles W. of Market Weighton. There is here a neat modern built church (see Churches for photograph), dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Rev. Wm. Alderson rector and patron; there is also a Roman Catholic chapel. Population 271.

This village appears to have given name to a family of the same name for, we find that this manor was held by the Everinghams of the Archbishops of York, by the service of performing the office of butler in their house, on the day of the inthronization(=enthronement, put on a throne -CH). The manor now belongs W. C. Maxwell, Esq.

In the mansion house, which is a large and lofty building of brick, of modern erection, with three fronts, is an excellent portrait of King Charles I. on horseback, by Vandyke, full size, and valued by connoisseurs at a thousand guineas. Adjoining is a Roman Catholic chapel, supported by the family."
