RIPLEY: Geographical and Historical information from the year 1829.

Geographical and Historical information from the year 1829.

"RIPLEY, is a small market town, in the parish of its name, and wapentake of Claro, west riding, 208 miles from London, 19 from Leeds, seven from Ripon, and five from Knaresborough, situated near to the river Nidd. It is principally noticed for its castle, the ancient seat of the Ingilby family, one of whom (Sir Thomas Ingilby) was the founder of the church. The edifice is dedicated to All Saints, and is a rectory, in the patronage of Sir W. A. Ingilby, Bart. M. P. and incumbent of the Rev. John Craycroft. The free school here was founded by Mary Ingilby, in 1702. The Market is on Wednesday, and the fairs are Easter Monday and Tuesday, and the 26th of August, principally for cattle, horses and sheep. The town contained, in 1821, 251 inhabitants."

"KILLINGHALL, a small village, in the parish of Ripley, is one mile from that town. The number of inhabitants (who are principally engaged-in agricultural pursuits) amounted, by the census for 1821, to 519."
Note: The directory entry for Killinghall in Pigot's 1829 Directory is included with Ripley.
