"CONISBROUGH, a parish-town, in the upper-division of Strafforth and Tickhill; 5 miles SW. of Doncaster, 7 from Rotherham, 42 from York. Pop. 1,142. The Church is a vicarage, dedicated to St. Peter, in the deanry of Doncaster, value, ~£8. 12s. 8½d. Patron, the Duke of Leeds.

The Castle here is supposed to be British (see History for photograph). The walls are of the immense thickness of 15 feet. It had neither portcullis nor machicolations, nor the Norman mode of securing loop holes. In the latter end of the Saxon period, it belonged to King Harold, and was afterwards given by the Conqueror to Earl Warren; who, it is supposed, re edified the Keep. --King's Munimenta Antiqua."
