The Ancient Parish of ROUTH

[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]

"ROUTH, a parish in the wapentake & liberty of Holderness; 4½ miles NE. of Beverley. The church, dedicated to All Saints, is a very ancient structure (see Churches for photograph), and the living, which is a rectory, in the patronage of the Misses Ellerkers, is enjoyed by the Rev. John L. Hutchinson. Pop. 124.

In the church is a mutilated effigy of a Knight Templar; and brasses of a Knight and his Lady, in good preservation, except the inscription, which has been torne off."
