"STANWICK SAINT JOHN, a parish in the wapentake of Gilling West, and liberty of Richmondshire; 8 miles N. of Richmond. Lord Prudhoe, brother to the Duke of Northumberland, has a seat here, situated in a finely wooded park, well stocked with deer. In the park are the remains of some Roman intrenchments. The church is a very ancient stone building, dedicated to St. John (see Churches for photograph), and in it are two remarkably handsome marble full length figures, to the memory of Sir Hugh and Lady Smithson, formerly of Stanwick hall, from whom it has descended to the present proprietor. The patronage of the living is in John Wharton, Esq. M. P. the Rev. William Wharton is the vicar, and the Rev. R. M. Atkinson, A. M. curate. Pop. 59."
