"The long suburb of St. Giles, or Gilesgate, joins Claypath in the parish of St. Nicholas, near the summit of the first hill; and after crossing a small valley, it ascends the second hill, whence it extends along the height to the eastward, and terminates on Gilesgate Moor. This was formerly termed the borough of St. Giles. The lands and burgages are held, with very few exceptions, by copy of court roll, and courts were regularly held by the masters of Kepier Hospital before the dissolution of the religious houses, and, since that period, they have been continued by the successive lay owners. On the division of Gilesgate Moor in 1817, the Marquis and Marchioness of Londonderry received one-sixteenth of the entire moor in lieu of their manorial rights, but they reserved to themselves the proprietorship of the mines. The collieries in this parish have for some years been "laid in"."
