"SUTTON ON THE FOREST, a parish in the wapentake of Bulmer; 5 miles SE. of Easingwold. Here is a very handsome parish church, dedicated to All Saints (see Churches for photograph); the living is a vicarage, in the patronage of the Archbishop of York. The celebrated Lawrence Sterne was a resident in, and the vicar of this parish; but on the destruction of the parsonage house by fire, he moved to Coxwold, of which place he was also vicar, as well as of Stillington. Population, 443."
