Pocklinqton is a parish, market town, railway station, township, and large agricultural district, on the Market Weighton branch (No. 1) of the North Eastern railway, 105 miles north-by-west from London, 16 1/2 east from York, 6 1/4 north-west from Market Weighton, 27 north west from Hull, 27 from Bridlington, 32 from Scarborough, 69 from Sheffield, 48 from Doncaster, 48 1/4 from Leeds, 58 1/2 from Huddersfleld, 59 3/4 from Halifax, 50 from Whitby, 126 1/2 from Liverpool, 89 from Manchester, 64 from Rotherham, 44 from Wakefield, 41 from Normanton, 63 from Bradford, 17 from Driffield, and 18 from Beverley, In the East Riding, Wilton Beacon division of the wapentake of Harthill, East Riding archdeaconry, and York archbishopric, and is the head of the Pocklington union; it is also a polling town, and petty sessions are held at the police station, Great George-street, the first Saturday in every month. The county court is held in the Odd Fellows Hall monthly. The Hon. Captain Arthur Duncombe, r.n., m.p., is lord of the manor, and holds a court-leet, baron and copyhold court annually. The poor law guardians meet every alternate Saturday at the union workhouse. The town is lighted with gas : the gas works were constructed in 1834, at a cost of £1,600, raised in £10 shares. It is also well supplied with water. The market-place is extensive, and watered by a considerable stream which rises near Millington, and on its course works several mills, and empties itself into the river Derwent. About 1 mile south-west of the town is the Pocklington Canal, the property of the North Eastern Railway Company. The canal was cut pursuant to Act passed in 1814 ; it is about 9 miles in length, and extends to Cottingwith, where it forms a communication with the river Derwent. This, with the East Riding branches (No. 1) of the North Eastern railway, furnishes the means of supplying the town and adjacent country with coals, lime, manure, and various articles of merchandise, and of conveying to different places corn, flour, timber, and other produce. Pocklington parish comprises the townships of Yapham-with-Meltonby and Ousthorpe, containing altogether an area of 4,668 acres ; and 2,761 inhabitants. The township of Pocklington contains 3,620 acres, and, in 1851, 2,546 souls; and the town of Pockllngton 2,556 persons, viz., 1,276 males, and 1,270 females.

The church of All Saints is a cruciform Gothic and Perpendicular structure, comprising a nave and aisles, transepts (the north having an east, aisle), a chancel, and a handsome lofty well - proportioned embattlled and pinnacled tower at the west end, containing a peal of 6 good bells and clock. On the north side of the chancel are two chapels, and a porch on the south side of the nave ; the windows have pointed arches, and some of them are large and embellished with trefoil and cinquefoil heads and neat tracery. The clerestory windows are likewise pointed. The east window is a spacious and handsome stained glass one, representing the Birth, Baptism, Crucifixion, the Slipper, and Ascension of our Saviour; it was erected by the Hon. Capt. Arthur Duncombe, r.n. m.p.

There is also a beautiful stained glass window, to the Loftus familly, added by Mrs Loftus ; both were executed by Wailes, of Newcastle. This church underwent a very extensive restoration a few years back, when it was re-pewed. The chancel, which is the most ancient portion of the edifice, has several Finely-carved stalls; the organ is a good toned one, and the font is a square basin on a circular pedestal. There are several monuments to the Dolman and other families ; and among them is an elegant mural monument to the memory of Thomas Dolman, Esq., J.p., for the East Riding. There is another handsome mural monument to Robert Denlson, Esq., who died in 1829, and his wife, who died in 1837. The living was constituted a vicarage In 1252, and endowed with the small tithes of the parish ; nett income £92; the Rev. James Francis Ellis is the vicar, and the Dean of York patron.

There are chapels for Independents, Wesleyan and Primitive Methodists, a Roman Catholic chapel, and a National school for buys, girls, and infants, which is situated in New Street, and was erected in 1854 at a cost of £1,440, including the site; there is also a National Wesleyan school in Chapman gate. A library and reading room were established in Waterloo-buildings in 1852, which were well supplied with newspapers, books, &c. ; the Rev. James Francis Ellis is chairman of the committee. Here are extensive flax works, which employ a considerable number of hands ; the trade further includes brewing, malting, rope and twine making, brick making, iron and brass foundries, agricultural implement manufactories, and in the neighbourhood are several corn mills. The market is held every Saturday, and is well supplied with provisions (the chief business in corn is done by samples). There are four fairs held here annually for cattle—on the 7th of March, 6th of May, 5th of August, and the 8th of November; on the 9th of November is a statute for hiring servants. The Odd Fellows' Hall, in Union Street, was built in 1839, and is let for public meetings, lectures, &c., a County court is also held monthly in the above room. The Union workhouse is situated on the road leading to Burnby ; it is a brick building, and was erected in 1852, at the cost of, including 2a. 2r. 37p. of land, £362; the building itself cost £1,008, and is capable of accommodating 113 persons.

The Free Grammar school of Pocklington was originally connected with a guild in the parish church, called the Society of Brethren of the Name of Jesus, the Blessed Virgin, and St. Nicholas of Pocklington ; the seal of the guild is still preserved, with the deeds and documents belonging to the school. The guild
in question was founded by John Dolman, LL.D., Archdeacon of Suffolk (one of a family who for centuries were lords of the manor of Pocklington), in the
seventh year of Henry VIII.; and when, subsequently, in the reign of that monarch, all such guilds were destroyed, the property originally left to the guild
was by the exertions of the founder's family preserved for the school. The master and fellows of St. John's College, Cambridge, under the arrangement then
made, appoint the master of the school, and he with the churchwardens appoints the usher; the master and usher form a corporation, called the " Corporation
of Master and Usher of the Free Grammar school of Pocklington." The revenues of the school arise mainly from land situated in various parts of the East
Riding, and amount to about £1,000 a year; in addition to this, the founder of the school left property, situated in the East Riding and in Derbyshire
(probably now worth from £500 to £600 a year), to the master and fellows of St. John's College, for the purpose of maintaining five scholars in that college;
it is hoped that under the provisions of the new bill for the government of the University of Cambridge these scholarships will be commuted for exhibitions,
which change would in all respects greatly benefit the school. The late master, the Rev. J. Shield. b.d., who found the income of the school in 1807 about
£100 per annum, succeeded, after long and expensive litigation, in setting aside the beneficial leases under which for many years the property of the school
had been held, and raised its income to the present amount: he also, in 1818, commenced the rebuilding of the school and master's house, then in a
dilapidated condition; but the work remained in a very incomplete state until the appointment of the present master, the Rev. F. J. Gruggen, m.a., in 1848:
since that period the school buildings have been almost entirely renewed under his superintendence, and they now form a handsome ornament to the southern
entrance of the town. The school now contains between thirty and forty scholars, and some of those who have recently left have distinguished themselves
considerably in the University of Cambridge. The new National schools, for 100 boys, 60 girls, and 100 infants, together with a house for the master, were
erected in 1854 at a cost of (including the value of the site) upwards of £1,400; of this sum the Committee of Council paid £631, and the National Society
contributed £60 the site was presented by the Ecclesiastical Commissionners (lately holders of land in the parish), and the Hon. Captain Arthur Duncombe,
r.n., m.p., their lessee. There is an Independent chapel, with an endowment of £10 yearly.

Ousthorpe is a township of Pocklington, situate 1 1/2 miles north-by-east of that place, and comprises an area of 330 acres ; and, in 1851, 13 inhabitants.
The land is the property of Admiral Mitford and John Singleton, Esq. It has some traces of a large moated mansion.

Yapham and Meltonby are two small agricultural villages and townships, about 1 mile from each other, and constitute a chapelry, in Pocklington parish. The
former is 2 miles north-north-west, and the latter 2 north-by-west from Pocklington (the nearest market, union, post town, railway station, and money order office), in the Wilton Beacon division of the wapentake of Harthill, Pocklington union, East Riding archdeaconry, and York archbishopric East Riding. The chapel is a plain consisting of nave and chancel, with a bell turret at the west end containing 1 bell; it was repaired in 1777-8, The living is united to
the vicarage of Pocklington. The rents of the chapel lands allotted at the inclosemeut, in 1733, are expended in repairing the chapel, feeding the poor, and
a portion of it is paid to the schoolmaster. The population of Yapham was, in 1851, 151, and of Meltonby 51 ; and the joint acreage is 1,818. The soil ss
sandy and gravel. The land belongs to various owners, The chief crops are wheat, barley, oats, beans, turnips, &c., Rateable value £1,978 15s. Rowland Hill
is a farm about three-quarters of a mile west of the village ; Yapham Grange is a farm about 1 mile south.
