"ROCHE ABBEY, in the township and parish of Maltby, upper division of Strafforth and Tickhill; 4 miles from Tickhill, 6 from Bawtry, 9 from Rotherham.
Richard de Builli and Richard Fitzturgis, founded an Abbey here, in 1147, and dedicated it to the blessed Virgin. The revenues were rated at £224. 2s. 5d. according to Dugdale, and £271. 19s. 4d. --Speed. The site was granted 35th Henry VIII. to William Ramsden and Thomas Vavasour. It is now the property of the Earl of Scarboruogh. One side of the nave of the church, under the middle tower, and some odd arches, are all that remain of this considerable structure, except a few small fragment which are scattered to a considerable distance around.
This spot certainly presents a most luxuriant and fascinating landscape; yet we cannot suffer our enthusiasm so far to run away with our senses, as to say with Mr. Dayes, that here "everything a traveller can wish, to render a place delightful, will be found concentrated in this most enchanting spot; majestic woods, expansive water, romantic rocks, an agreeable ruin, and withal, most commodious walks, for the convenience of viewing its various beauties.""

This elegant Mansion, which was built by Richard, the fourth Earl of Scarborough, is a magnificent and commodious residence. The south front is in the pure style of Grecian architecture; and the interior corresponds with the exterior in elegance. Amongst a fine collection of pictures in this house, a description of which may be seen in Young's Northern Tour, is one, in the drawing room, by Wilson, of "that true, incorruptible, and never to be forgotten patriot Sir George Savile, in a sitting posture, with a map of the river Calder before him." --Miller's History of Doncaster.
This ancient family of the Lumleys, says Camden and Dugdale, is descended from Liulph, a person of great nobility in the time of Edward the Confessor, who married Algitha, daughter to Aldred, Earl of Northumberland; and that they took the name from their lordship of Lumley, on the banks of the river Wear, near Chester le Street.
The first Earl of Scarborough, was Richard, Viscount Lumley, created an English Peer, by the title of Baron Lumley, 1681. He had a principal command of the troops that gained the victory at Sedgemoor over the Duke of Monmouth; but concurring in the revolution, was, in 1689, created Viscount Lumley, and in 1690, Earl of Scarborough: he died in 1721. The present is the sixth Earl. --Biog. Peerage."
