"STRENSALL, a parish within the liberty of ST-PETER-of-YORK, East riding, though locally in the wapentake of Buhner, North riding, of the county of YORK, 6 miles N.N.E. from York, containing 378 inhabitants. The living is a discharged vicarage, in the peculiar jurisdiction and patronage of the Prebendary of Strensall in the Cathedral Church of York, rated in the king's books at £4. 13. 4. The church is dedicated to St. Mary.
