[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]

"WARMSWORTH, a parish-town, in the lower-division of Strafforth and Tickhill; (Warmsworth Hall, the residence of Francis Offley Edmunds, Esq.) 3 miles SW. of Doncaster, 5 from Tickhill, 9 from Rotherham, 40 from York. Pop. 335. The Church is a rectory, dedicated to St. Peter, in the deanry of Doncaster, value, ~£6. 10s. 10d. Patron, William Wrightson of Cusworth, Esq. A small part of this village is in the parish of Doncaster.

Here, the celebrated George Fox, and his friends, held their meetings at the first rising of the Quakers, "till they were persecuted by the parish priest." Being thus driven away, they removed to Balby, where they assembled occasionally, for some years, and till a convenient building for that purpose, together with a burial place, was provided. --Miller's History of Doncaster."

"BUTTERBUSK, a farm-house in the township and parish of Warmsworth, 4 miles SW. of Doncaster."
