The Ancient Parish of COLLINGHAM

[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]

"COLLINGHAM, a parish-town, in the lower-division of Skyrack; 1 mile S. of Wetherby, 6¼ from Tadcaster, 9 from Leeds, 12¾ from Otley, 15¼ from York. Pop. 286. The Church is a vicarage, dedicated to St. Oswald (see Churches for photograph), in the deanry of the Ainsty, value, ~£3. 11s. 5½d. Patrons, the Trustees of Lady Betty Hastings."

"COMPTON, a farm-house in the township and parish of Collingham; 2½ miles S. of Wetherby, 6 from Tadcaster."

"MICKLETHWAITE, an area in the parish of Collingham, wapentake of Barkston-Ash; quarter of a mile from Wetherby. Pop. 83"

"MICKLETHWAITE GRANGE, a single house in the township of Micklethwaite, and parish of Collingham; 1 mile from Wetherby. This house was later named Beilby House and the modern (2008) name is Wetherby House. It is on the banks of the river Wharfe.

This place is the property of Paul Beilby Thompson, Esq. The house is in an unfinished state, and is only occupied by a farmer, to take care of the deer and horses in the Park. It is sometimes called Micklethwaite Grange, and under which name, it appears, at page 357, incorrect with respect to its being extra parochial."
