1840 William Whites Directory
NB: This information is sourced from an actual directory.

POCKLINGTON is an improving market town, pleasantly seated in the vale of a rivulet, near the western foot of the Wolds, surrounded by a champaign tract of rich loamy land, and distant 13 miles E. of York, 7 miles N.W. of Market Weighton, 26 miles N.W. of Hull, and 195 miles N. by W. of London. • Its market, held every Saturday, is well supplied with corn and provisions; and it has four annual cattle fairsi held March 7th, May 6th, Aug. 5th, and Nov. 8th. A hiring, for servants is held Nov. 9th. Its canal, which terminates at Street Bridge, nearly a mile south of the town, is nine miles in length, extend­ing south west, parallel, and partly in the channel of the rivulet, to the river Derwent, near East Cottingwith, and was cut under the powers of an act passed in 1814. It has nine locks, and since its completion, the town has greatly improved, and considerable business is now done in bringing coal, lime, manure, and merchandize, and in taking away corn, flour, and other agricultural produce to Leeds, Wakefield, and other places. The canal dues yield about £1700 per annum. The township of Pocklingtoncontains 2520 acres of land, and has increased its population, since the year 1801, from 1502 to 2048 souls. Robert Denison, Esq., owns a great part of the soil, and is lord of the manor, which is partly in the liberty of St. Peter, and includes Clayfield, Tofl-houses, Woodhouse, Northfield, and some other farms, extending about two miles from the town. The Parish of Pocklington includes also Meltonby, Ousthorpe, and Yapham townships ; and the town is the head of a large Union, under the New Poor Law,* and one of the polling places of the East Riding. In the Confessor's time, Pockling­ton was the estate of Morcar, Earl of Northumberland ; but the Con­queror gave it to the Earl of Albemarle and Holderness. In the 28th of Edward I., it was held by Henry Lord Percy, who obtained a char­ter for a market every Saturday, at his manor of Pocklington, and two fairs, on the eve and feast of All Saints and St. Margaret.

* Pocklington union comprises the following 48 parishes and townships, viz. :—> Allerthorpe, Barmby Moor, Bielby, Bishop Wilton, Bolton, Bugthorpe, Burnby, High and Low Cation, North and South Cliffe, East Cottingwith, Everingham, Fangfoss, Fri-daythorpe, Full Button, Great Givendale, Goodmanham, Harswell, Hayton, Huggate, Kilnwick Percy, Kirby Underdale, Londesborough, Market Weighton, Melbourne, Mel-tonby, MilHngton, Newton on Derwent, Nun-Buinholme, Ousthorpe, Pocklington, Sancton, Scrayingham, Seaton Ross, Shipton, Skirpenbeck, East Stamford Bridge, Stor-wood, Sutton upon Derwent, Thixendale, Thornton, Thorpe, Waplington, Warter, Wilbeifoss, Yapham, and Youlthorpe. It is divided into the three Registration district called Market Weighton, East Stamford Bridge, and Pocklington. Mr. Henry Powell, of the latter town, is clerk to the board of guardians, and superintendent registrar.

His son, Henry, in the 18th of Edward II., obtained a charter for two more fairs, to be held yearly. The Rev. Humphrey Sydenham, who died in 1650, was so eloquent a preacher, that he was commonly called " Silver-tongued Sydenham," and was so firm an adherent to Charles 1., that the democratical puritans ejected him from the vicarage of Pocklington, at the commencement of the Commonwealth. Dr. John Pocklington, (a prebendary of Peterborough, during the civil wars,) is supposed to have descended from a family who took their name from this town. He was chaplain to Charles I., and rendered himself so obnoxious to the puritans, by his two books, entitled " Altare Christianum" and "Sun­day no Sabbath" that the Long Parliament deprived him of all his preferments, and ordered his two books to be burnt by the common hang­man, at London, and the two Universities. In 1763, four human ske­letons were dug up in a gravel-pit, in Barnsley field, near this town; three were without coffins, but the fourth was enclosed in a coffin, with an urn at the head, on the outside of which were engraved several an­cient characters. In the neighbourhood of Pocklington are several tumuli, in which Roman and Saxon antiquities have been found. When the Rev, John Wesley was here, he was told that, in a field, in the deep ' valley near Millington, a subterraneous house, of many apartments, had been discovered by a Mr. H., who, after exploring it, filled up the en­trance, and would not suffer it to be re-opened,
Pocklington Church(All Saints) is a large Gothic edifice, consisting of a nave and aisles, transepts (the north having an east aisle,) a chan­cel, and a handsome well-proportioned tower at the west end, rising to a considerable altitude, and surmounted by battlements and eight crock-etted pinnacles. The windows have pointed arches, and some of them are large, and embellished with trefoil and cinquefoil heads, and neat tracery. The south transept appears to have been modernized early in the 17th century. The nave is divided from the aisles by three pointed arches, resting on circular columns, some with plain and the others with grotesque capitals. The chancel appears to be the oldest part of the fabric, and has some ancient stalls, and several monuments to the Dolman and other families. On the three pedestals of an elegant mural monument, recently erected to the memory of Robert Denison, Esq., who died in 1829, and his lady, who died in 1837, are placed, in glazed compartments, three exquisite pieces of oak carved work, representing the bearing of the cross, the crucifixion, and the descent. An ancient stone, on which the crucifixion is sculptured, was found when digging a grave, in the churchyard, in 1835, and is now placed on a pedestal, on the north side of the nave. It is inscribed, " Pray for the soul of John Sutherby." On the outside, at the east end of the church, is a slab in­scribed to the memory of Thomas Petting, of Burton Strather, com­monly called the flying-man, who was killed in his attempt to descend by a rope from the top of the tower, in 1733. The living is a vicarage, valued in K.B. at £10. Is. 10d., and now at £112, being augmented with £700 of Q.A.B., from 1757 to 1822; with £500 given by the Hon. and Rev. Henry Finch and his lady, in 1717, and with £200, given by Mrs. H. Griffiths, in 1822. A new vicarage-house was purchased, and the old one sold, about four years ago. The Dean of York is patron and appropriator; and the Rev. Geo. Alex. Cockburn, M.A., incum­bent. The Church Land, awarded at the enclosure in 1759, consists  23A. 2n. 4p., let for £42 a year, which is applied in repairs, &c. toge­ther with =£8. 15s. per annum, arising from two cottages, a house, and three roods of land, given by an unknown donor. Here are four other places of worship, viz.,—a Catholic Chapel; an Independent Chapel, with a house for the minister, and an endowment of .£10 a year; a Wesleyan Chapel, built in 1813 ; and a Primitive Methodist Chapel, erected in 1820. A Temperance Hall, and. an Odd Fellows' Hall, were erected here in 1839. The Gas Works here were constructed in 1834, at the cost of £1600, raised in £10 shares.
The free grammar school of Pocklington is richly endowed, and arose from the munificence of John Dolman, or Dowman, LL.D,, Archdeacon of Suffolk, who died in 1526, and in the 6th of Henry VIII. obtained a license to found, in the parish church, a fraternity, or " Guild, of the name of Jesus, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and St. Ni­cholas the Bishop," for a master, two guardians, and a number of bre­thren and sisters. Leave was also given to the founder to grant lands, &c. of the yearly value of 20 marks, to the said Guild, for the purpose of supporting a learned man to teach grammar to all scholars resorting to Pockliugton for such instruction. In the 17th of Henry VIII., the said Dr. Dolman conveyed certain lands in Yorkshire and Derbyshire, to the master and fellows of St. John's College, Cambridge, on condi­tion of their maintaining, in that college, five scholars, to be nominated by the above-named Guild ;—those of his name and kindred, and the scholars of the school which he had founded, to have the preference. After the dissolution of the Guild, in the 1st of Edward VI., the school was re-constituted in the 6th of that reign, as a Free Grammar School, under the patronage of St. John's College, who appoint the master. The latter and the churchwardens nominate the usher, and, with the vicar of Pocklington, have the right of filling up vacancies in the five scholarships at the said college. The school property produced in 1828, £1020, and now about £800 per annum, and consists of land and buildings at Pocklington, Duggleby, Barmby, Wetwang, Lutton, Acklam, and York, partly received in 1824, from Col. Fullerton, in ex­change for two farms of 188A., at Thribergh. The school has also £1. 16s. 8d. yearly, from land at Wetwang, left by the Rev. Thomas Mountforth. The old school and master's house were taken down in 1818, and rebuilt on a more commodious plan, by the Rev. Thomas Shield, B.D., the present master, who was inducted in 1807, when the school income was only about £100 per annum, and when he com­menced a series of suits in Chancery, which terminated in 1820, and by which he succeeded in setting aside the long leases and small rents, tinder which all the school estates had previously been held. It is not distinctly provided, in the school-deeds, in what proportions it was ori­ginally intended the master and usher should share in the school reve­nues ; but before 1807, it was usual for the former to receive two-thirds, and the latter one-third of the income. In consequence of the present master having alone incurred a considerable expense in recovering the possessions of the school, from the lessees, and thus increasing its yearly income from £100 to £800, it has been agreed that he shall allow the usher £200 per annum, and retain the rest for himself. By the spirited and praiseworthy exertions of Mr. Shield, during an expensive litigation of thirteen years, the school has been raised to the rank of one of the most liberally endowed scholastic institutions in the kingdom. It is free for classical learning to all the boys of Pocklington and the neighbour­hood, on the payment of an entrance-fee of five shillings. The founder was of the ancient family of Dolman, or Dowman, who, at an early pe­riod, were lords of Lastingham; and their present representative is Jno. Dolman, Esq., of York, where one of his ancestors was abbot of St. Mary's. Pocklington has also a National School, erected in 1819, by B. Denison, Esq., and now affording instruction to about 80 boys and 60 girls. There are in the town several friendly societies, and religious and charitable institutions, and a branch of the York Savings' Bank.
meltonby, a hamlet and township, at the foot, of the Wolds, 2½ miles N. of Pocklington, has only 60 inhabitants and 710 acres of land. It maintains its poor with Yapham, and belongs to several freeholders ; and the farmers are, Jas. Cobb, Thos. Cross (Hall}, J. Cumberland, Ralph Green, Win. Nolton, and Wm. W right. (See Yapham.)
ousthorpe, 2 miles N. by E. of Pocklington, is a township, with only 20 inhabitants, and 329A. 3a. 27p. of land, all the property of Bertram Mitford Osbaldeston, Esq. It has some traces of a large moated mansion; and the principal residents are, Thomas Hodge, corn miller ; and John Kilby, farmer.
yapham is a small village and township, 2 miles N.N.W. of Pock­lington, containing 137 souls and 1020 acres of land, belonging to vari­ous owners, who are mostly lessees of the tithes, under the Dean of York. The Chapelry of Yapham-cum-Meltonby maintains its poor as one township, and has here a neat Chapel, which was rebuilt in 1777 and '8, and is a perpetual curacy, which was, till lately, united with. Pocklington vicarage, but is now in the incumbency of the Rev. W. H. Etty, B.A. The Dean of York is patron. The Chapel Lands, with several cottages, are let for .£78. 16s. 6d. per annum, and were partly given, at an early period, by John Beal and other donors ; but the chief part was awarded at the enclosure, in 1733, though 71 acres, so al­lotted, is of little value, being in the low common, and covered chiefly with whins and turf. Part of the rents are employed in repairing the chapel, so that a rate for that purpose is never required, and the surplus income is partly distributed amongst the poor, and partly paid to a schoolmaster, for the instruction of twelve or fourteen poor children, in a school-room built on the trust-land, about twenty years ago. The poor of the chapelry have 3s. 4d. yearly, from Wood's charity. Directory : Wm. Baines, blacksmith ; Jas. Barnett, wheelwright; Michl. Horsley, corn miller; John Hudson, schoolmaster (h.
