"WYCLIFFE, a parish in the western division of the wapentake of GILLING, North riding of the county of YORK, 2 miles E.N.E. from Greta-Bridge, containing, with the township of Thorpe, 152 inhabitants. The living is a rectory, in the archdeaconry of Richmond, and diocese of Chester, rated in the king's books at £14. 12. 1., and in the patronage of T. E. Headlam, Esq. The church was rebuilt in the reign of Edward III. This is said to be the birthplace of Wickliffe, the Reformer; though some affirm that he was born at Spreswell, near Richmond, which is only a few miles hence."
