[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]

"HUNMANBY, a parish in the wapentake of Dickering, 8 miles from Bridlington, 39 from York, and 207 from London, about midway between Scarbro' and Bridlington, is well built, and pleasantly situated, being surrounded by 6,000 acres of fertile land, and adorned by a considerable quantity of ornamental wood, chiefly growing on an elevated site, called the Castle Hill, where are still to be traced the foundations of an ancient fortress. Hunmanby had formerly a market, which was held on Tuesday, but it has long been discontinued." (There is further information for Hunmanby).


"BARTINDALE, in the parish of Hunmanby, and wapentake of Dickering; 2¾ miles SSE. of Hunmanby. Here was formerly a chapel to Hunmanby, when it was called Barkerdale."


"FORDON, in the parish of Hunmanby, and wapentake of Dickering; 3¼ miles WSW. of Hunmanby; a chapelry (see Churches for photograph) to the vicarage of Hunmanby.

In this chapel service is only performed twice a year, viz. on Good Friday, and on the feast of St. Stephen."
