The Ancient Parish of LYTHE

[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]

"LYTHE, a parish in the wapentake and liberty of Langbargh; 4 miles WNW. of Whitby. Lythe is pleasantly situated near the eastern extremity of Cleveland, about 1 mile distant from the sea. Peter de Mausley, III. in the 38th of Henry the Third, obtained a licence for a weekly market, and a fair yearly, to be held on the Eve of St. Oswald, but being in the vicinity of Whitby, both the fairs and market have long been discontinued. The lord of the manor is the Earl of Mulgrave, who resides here, in a stately mansion, which stands a little South of the village, upon the brow of a gently rising hill, commanding a pleasing and extensive prospect of the country and the sea. The Church, dedicated to St. Oswald (see Churches for photograph), is an ancient structure, but owing to a thorough repair, which it received in 1819, has rather a modern appearance at first sight. The living is a vicarage, in the patronage of the Archbishop of York. There is also a Methodist Chapel, built in 1822. Pop. 1134."
