Area, 2,290 acres. Harthill wapentake. Wilton Beacon *2. - Population, 452 ; Church-room, 200; Net value, £50. -The whole town was given by Ulphus to St. Peter, part of which belongs to the Prebendary, who is lord of the town, having therein his demesne manor and six oxgangs of land *3. The Church belongs to the Dean of York, as Parson of Pocklington, to whom it was appropriated, and a Vicarage ordained in 1252, in the Chapels of Barmby and Fangfoss. Fangfoss is as much a parish Church as Barmby, but they make but one Vicarage. 2s. per annum was reserved, in token of subjection to Pocklington. No catalogue of Incumbents is given by Torre.

Patron and impropriator, the Dean of York.

Valued in the King's books, at £5. 6s. 8d.; in the Parliamentary Survey, vol. xvii. page 376, it is stated : " Vicarage, £6; impropriation, £60;" and in 1818, at £55. 4s. 6d. per annum.
