HOLME ON SPALDING MOOR:
Geographical and Historical information from the year 1750.

"HOLME ON SPALDING MOOR, a parish in the E.R. of Yorkshire, (given as "Holm") in Spalding-Moor 2 m. S. W. from Wighton, is the seat of Ld. Langdale, to whom it gives title of Baron, as it did to his ancestor, Sir Marmaduke, who was created a Baron by K. Cha. II. in his exile, and the first person he advanced to the peerage. This place gives name to one of the divisions of the E.R."
