FYLINGDALES: Geographical and Historical information from the year 1834.

"FYLINGDALES, a dale and a parish in the wapentake and liberty of Whitby Strand."

"ROBIN HOOD'S BAY, is a hamlet, in the parish of Fylingdales, and the liberty of Whitby Strand, North Riding, about five miles s.s.e. from Whitby ; situate on the shore of the German ocean, and is a fishing station of some consideration. An interest is attached to this place from the tradition of its having been the retreat of the renowned depredator from whom it takes its name, who, it is said, had always several vessels in readiness, here, by the aid of which he eluded his pursuers. Population made up with Fylingdales, which contained, in 1831, 1,535 inhabitants, being less by 167 than the chapelry contained in 1821, and less by 33 than were returned at the census taken in 1801."
