[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]"WINESTEAD, a parish in the wapentake and liberty of Holderness; 1½ mile NW. of Patrington, a small pleasant village surrounded by a variety of beautiful picturesque scenery. There are two elegant halls, which may rank, for pleasantness and neatness of structure, with many or the noble villas in England. The church (see Churches for photograph) is a low Gothic structure, surrounded by lofty trees, that give it an air of deep solemnity, there is in the interior a stone monument, representing the late Sir Robert Hildyard, laying in armour, the monument stands in an unusual part of the church, being placed immediately before the pulpit." (There is further information for Winestead).
