SEAMER: Geographical and Historical information from the year 1834.

"SEAMER, is an agricultural village in the parish of its name, about 4 miles from Scarborough, situate on the road to Great Driffield. The places of worship are, the parish church, dedicated to St. Martin, and a chapel for Wesleyan methodists. Seamer is a vicarage, of which the Rev. Henry Foord is incumbent, and the Rev. Edmund Dowker his present curate. The living is in the gift of W.J.Denison, Esq. M.P., who has founded a school here for the instruction of poor children of the neighbourhood. This place derives some importance from its great fair, held on the 15th of July, and a market on the first Monday in every month, for cattle and sheep. The parish contained at the last census, 981 inhabitants, and the township 514 of that number.
Please see Scarborough Parish for the 1834 trades directory for this parish."
