The Ancient Parish of SUTTON ON THE FOREST

[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]

"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."

"HUBY, in the parish of Sutton on the Forest, wapentake of Bulmer, & liberty of Pickering Lythe; 1 mile WNW. of Sutton on the Forest, 4 miles SE. of Easingwold. Here are Wesleyan and Primitive Methodist chapels, and a Friends' Meeting house. Pop. 497."

"SUET CARR, a few farm houses in the township and parish of Sutton-on-the-forest; 2 miles SE. of Sutton on the Forest, 6 miles from York, 8 from Easingwold."
