In 1822, the following places were in the Parish of Clapham:


"AUSTWICK, in the parish of Clapham, wapentake of Ewcross; (the seat of Charles Ingilby, Esq.), (Austwick Hall, the seat of Mrs. King,) 4 miles NW. of Settle, 12 from Kirby Lonsdale, 20 from Skipton. No Market. Fair, Thursday before Whitsuntide, for horned cattle, &c. Pop. 556."


"CLAPDALE, a farm-house in the township and parish of Clapham; 9 miles NW. of Settle."


"CLAPHAM LODGE, the seat of James Farrer, Esq., in the township and parish of Clapham."


"FEIZOR, in the parish of Clapham, wapentake of Ewcross; 4 miles NW. of Settle, 13 from Kirby Lonsdale.

One circumstance with respect to this village deserves to be mentioned. Of ten houses in this place, seven are always in the township of Lawkland, and parish of Clapham; one is always in the parish of Giggleswick, and the remaining two, one year within Clapham, and the next within Giggleswick. The inhabitants have seats in both churches, and resort to them alternately, and pay corn tithe to the Rectors, and Easter dues to the Vicars of the two churches alternately; but all pay their assessed taxes to Stainforth. --Whitaker's Craven."


"GREEN CLOSE, a hamlet in the township of Clapham with Newby, and parish of Clapham; 8½ miles NW. of Settle."


"INGLEBOROUGH, in the parishes of Low Bentham, Horton in Ribblesdale and Clapham, wapentake of Staincliffe; 10 miles SE. of Settle, a mountain 3987 feet above the level of the sea. From the summit of Ingleborough, the country with its roads, rivers, towns and villages, capes and bays, may be seen like a large map stretched under the eye of the observer to a distance of 40, 50, and 60 miles. The immense lime-stone base on which this mountain stands is between 20 and 30 miles in circumference. The rise in some places is even and gradual, whilst in others, as to the N. and W. it is rugged and almost perpendicular. The top is plain and horizontal, being almost a mile round, having the ruins of an old wall upon it. On the western edge there is the remains of a beacon about 4 yards high, ascended by steps; and which may be seen over a vast tract of country. Though Whernside is higher than Ingleborough, yet the top of the latter mountain, from its situation, is the first land that the sailors descry in their voyage from Dublin to Lancaster, and it is seen when they are 30 miles at sea."


"KEASDEN LANE, scattered houses in the township and parish of Clapham; 7 miles from Settle."


"LAWKLAND, in the parish of Clapham, wapentake of Ewcross; (Lawkland Hall, the seat of John Ingilby, Esq.) 3½ miles NW. of Settle, 13 from Kirby Lonsdale, (Westm.) Pop. 351.

Adjoining to Lawkland is an ancient Chapel, called Eldroth Chapel, the rent of the lands belonging to which, go towards the education of six children. No service performed in the Chapel."


"LAWKLAND GREEN, a hamlet in the township of Lawkland, and parish of Clapham; (the seat of Thomas Ingilby, Esq.) 3 miles from Settle."


"NEWBY, in the township of Clapham with Newby, and parish of Clapham, wapentake of Ewcross; 7 miles NW. of Settle, 10 from Kirby Lonsdale, (Westm.) Pop. included in Clapham."


"NEWBY COTE, a hamlet in the township of Ingleton, and parish of Clapham; 8 miles from Settle."


"WHARFE, a hamlet in the township of Austwick, and parish of Clapham; 8 miles from Settle."
