The Ancient Parish of STILLINGFLEET

[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]

"STILLINGFLEET, a parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire, but containing some places in the Ainsty of York. See East Riding for details of other places in this parish."

"ACASTER SELBY, in the parish of Stillingfleet; 8 miles S. of York. This village is pleasantly situated on the banks of the Ouse, on which river the Steam Packets, and others, pass and repass to Selby, Gainsbro' and Hull, tending considerably to enliven the scene. Here is a Free School, with an endowment of £7. 7s. per annum, arising out of the fee-farm rents, aided also by voluntary subscriptions of the inhabitants of the township. This place was formerly part of the possession of the Abbot of Selby, and from thence its name is derived. Population, 188."
