[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]

"GOXHILL, a parish in the wapentake and liberty of Holderness; 3 miles SW. of Hornsea. The church which is of considerable antiquity (see Churches for photograph), is situated on an eminence, and is embosomed in lofty trees, which add much to the solemnity of the scene. Time has impaired the building, but it is at present undergoing a thorough repair. The living is a rectory dedicated to St. Giles, the patron of which is the Rev. C. Constable; the Rev. John Courtney, is rector, and the Rev. Christopher Forge, curate. Pop. 70."
