Wilton

[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]

"WILTON, a parish in the wapentake & liberty of Langbargh 3 miles NW. of Guisborough. At the western extremity of this village, formerly stood the ruins of Wilton Castle, the baronial seat of the Bulmers, an ancient family of great reputation and large possesions in Yorkshire, and the county of Durham, in which family this estate continued for many generations. till Sir John Bulmer, Knight, the last possessor, (of that family) engaging in" The Pilgrimage of Grace." was attainted for high treason; when this, and his other estates were forfeited to the crown. The castle has been re-built according to its ancient order of architecture, by the Hon. John Lowther, M. P. the lord of the manor, by whom it is now occupied. The church, dedicated to St. Cuthbert; is a perpetual curacy, in the gift of the lord of the manor, and the Rev. Thomas, Saul, is the incumbent. Pop. 405."
