Data from the 'Collectio Rerum Ecclesiasticarum' from the year 1842.

The place: BRAMHOPE.     Church dedication: CHAPEL.

Area, vide Otley. Skirack wapentake, U.D. -Population, 359, vide Otley; Chapel-room, 160; Net value, £48.

Jeremy, son of William de Marton, gave to the Priory of Arthington pasture for 200 sheep.

The monks of Kirkstall had also lands here.

The water-mill at Bramhope was leased to the Hospital of St. Leonard, York, by the Abbot and Convent of Kirkstall, for 4s. rent per annum.

Patrons, six trustees.

An Inclosure Act was passed 45th Geo. III.

" The Chapel of Bramhope, built and endowed (as I am told) by Mr. Dineley (the grandfather of the present Robert Dineley, Esq.) and the freeholders there. It is not yet consecrated. Mr. Dineley, they say, being unwilhng to quit the right, he pretends to the ground on which it stands. Upon the building of it, so many acres of land were inclosed from the common as will make a competent maintenance for a Curate. This land, is settled, by deed, for the use of the Chapel. By this settlement, Mr. Dineley is to pay the Curate, who is to be nominated by the trustees, £47 and a noble per annum, or to let him have the land. I hear he did pay this sum for several years to Mr. Hepworth, but after he went off, he paid to Mr. Biggs, the next Curate, but £40 per annum.

" 1699, William Wilson admitted Curate upon the nomination of Sir Walter Hawkesworth, Cyril Arthington, Thomas Fairfax, and Robert Dineley, Esqs. trustees.

" This Chapel was built by Robert Dineley, upon his own ground, a little before the Restoration. 120 acres, valued at 6s. 8d. per acre, in all £40. 10s. per annum, were inclosed by him and the freeholders for the use of the curate; afterwards 10 acres more, whereon to build a house for him, the profits whereof to be employed to that use. But there is yet no house built, nor are the profits paid to the Curate." -Abp. Sharp's MS.

There is no glebe house.

The Registers are included in Otley. Marriages are celebrated at Otley.

School. Rent of six acres of land, allotted on the inclosure. No free scholars. -Vide 15th Report, page 685.
