"LOW CATTON, a parish in the E.R. of Yorkshire."


"STAMFORD BRIDGE, in the parish of Low Catton, Yorkshire, E.R., over the Derwent, S. W. of Wilton, is by some writers called Battle-Bridge, because K. Harold gave a signal defeat to the forces of Harold the Norwegian, just before the arrival of William the Conq. to England."
