Barlby contained ten carucates of land, where twelve make a knight's fee, which William de Aton held of the Bishop of Durham by knight's service, and he held them of the king in capite by no rent.

This is a Chapel in the parish of Hemingbrough, but having been augmented by Queen Anne's bounty it is now become a Benefice.

Patron, the Vicar of Hemingbrough.

Valued in 1818 at £78 per annum ; and in the Parliamentary Survey, vol. xvii. page 314, it is recommended to be made a parish, and Osgodby united to it.

Augmented in 1726, with £200, to meet benefaction of £200 from Mr. John Vicars and Mr. Thomas Dalby ; and in 1759, with £200; in 1786, with £200; and in 1809, with £200 -all by lot.

A faculty was granted on the 6th June, 1778, to take down and re-build the Chapel, and on the 11th May, 1780, a confirmation was made of allotment of pews in the Chapel.
