North Frodingham, Yorkshire, England. Geographical and Historical information from 1834.


Geographical and Historical information from the year 1834.

"NORTH FRODINGHAM, is a parish-town and a village in the northern division of the wapentake of Holderness, East Riding, about five miles and a half s.e. from Great Driffield; situated about half a mile eastward from the River Hull, which is navigable from hence to the Humber. Frodingham had formerly a weekly market, but which was transferred to Great Driffield about eighty years since: and it is now quite unimportant as a place of trade. The places of worship are the parish church, dedicated to St. Elgin, and chapels for independents, and Wesleyan and primitive methodists. The living is a discharged vicarage, in the patronage of the Rev. William Drake. The parish contained, by the government returns taken in 1831, 711 inhabitants."
