"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."
