"BARNBURGH, (or Barmbrough), a parish in the northern division of the wapentake of Strafforth and Tickhill, in the West Riding of the county of York, 6 miles to the W. of Doncaster, its post town. It includes the hamlet of Harlington. The living is a rectory in the diocese of York, of the value of £570, in the patronage of the Chapter of the Collegiate Church of Southwell. The church is dedicated to St. Peter. It is in the perpendicular style of architecture, and contains a richly carved monument with effigies of Percival Cresacre, and other monuments. Barmbrough Hall, on the banks of the river Dearne, was formerly the seat of the Cresacres and of the Mores. It contains several old and curious paintings, one of them a copy of Holbein's picture of the More family, the original of which is said to be at Nostall Priory, in Yorkshire.
