Population, no return; Chapel-room, no return; Net value, no return. -On the day of Pentecost 1355, the Abbot of Roche permitted the inhabitants of Stainforth, by the Archbishop's license, to maintain, at their own charge, a chaplain to celebrate divine service in the Chapel of Stainforth, then newly built, for the space of three years daily, excepting on Sundays and other great festivals, whereon they were to repair to the parish church of Hatfield.

Here was a Chantry of the Blessed Mary, which was valued at the Dissolution at £3. 8s. 5d. per annum.
