[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]

"GRINTON, a parish in the wapentake of Hang West, and liberty of Richmondshire: 1 mile SE. of Reeth. The church, dedicated to St. Andrew (see Churches for photograph), is a very ancient structure, and has lately undergone many repairs; the windows, which are much corroded by time, are beautifully ornamented with stained glass. The living is a vicarage, in the patronage of the King. There were fairs formerly held here, but owing to its decreasing population they were transferred to Reeth, a market town in this parish. This parish is divided into four townships, each of which maintains its own poor, namely, Grinton, S. of the Swale: Reeth, on the N.; Melbecks, W. of Reeth; and Muker, on both banks of the Swale, which extends to the Dalehead. Population, 689."
