     Information based on research on the archives at the Borthwick Institute of Historical Research of the
     University of York which has corrected & amplified the collations of James Torre [17th century] & the later
     John George Hall; also upon the pedigree of the family Hildyard in
     Norman James Miller's Winestead and its Lords and other - more recent & detailed
     family information from Captain A J C Hildyard of Winestead.
     Since the 17th century, all the Patrons have been of the family: the same is
     true of almost every rector until 1973 for those without the name were akin.

     Willerby who also did the writing and the decoration. February 1976
