Pocklington is a parish, market and union town, head of a county court district, polling place for the Riding: and station on the Market Weighton branch (No. 1) of  the North Eastern railway, 195 miles from London, 16½ by rail, east from York, 6¼ north-west from Market Weighton, 27 northwest from Hull, 27 south-west from Bridlington, and 32 south-west from Scarborough, in the Wilton Beacon division of the wapentake of Harthill. rural deanery of Pocklington, East Riding archdeaconry and York diocese.

The town is lighted with gas, from works constructed in 1834, and is watered by a considerable stream which rises near Millington and Great Givendale, and in its course works several mills and empties itself into the river Derwent.

The church of All Saints is a cruciform Gothic and Perpendicular structure, comprising a chancel, nave and allies, transepts (the north having an east aisle) and a handsome lofty well proportioned embattled and pinnacled tower at the west end, containing a peal of 5 good bells and clock : there are two chapels on the north side of the chancel 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 tracery; the clerestory windows are likewise Pointed ; the east window is stained, representing the Birth, Baptism, Crucifixion, the Supper and Ascension of our Saviour; it was erected by Admiral the Hon. Arthur Duncombe; there is also a beautiful memorial window, to the Loftus family, added by Mrs. Loftus: this church underwent a restoration about 1850, 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; 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 Thomas Dolman, esq.; there is another handsome mural monument to Robert Denison, esq. who died in 1829, and his wife who died in 1837. The Sotherby Cross is another very interesting monument; date circa 1350, it was discovered in the churchyard whilst digging a grave and is now erected at the west end of the church; a cast of this cross has been taken for the Crystal Palace: there is also a large carved oak monument in the chancel, to the Denison family, formerly lords of the manor, supposed to be carved by Albert Durer or one of his pupils: it represents the Crucifixion and contains a large number of figures. The register dates from the year 1559. The living was constituted a vicarage in 1252, and endowed with the small tithes of the parish, net income £300, in the gift of the Archbishop of York and held by the Rev. John Henry Wicksteed, M.A. of Worcester College, Oxford.

St. Mary's and St. Joseph's Catholic church in Union street, was opened in 1863; it consists of an apse and nave, which it is intended at some future time to be lengthened, and was built from the designs of Messrs. Hadfield of Sheffield : it has three stained windows and sittings for 120 persons; attached to the church is a residence for the priest) the Rev. G. Brunner. Close to the church is a school to hold more than 50 children: it is under government inspection and has an average attendance of 30 scholars taught by a mistress.

There is a Congregational chapel, with an endowment of £10 yearly.
There are chapels for Congregational, Wesleyan and Primitive Methodists and a Catholic chapel.

The Free Grammar school of Pocklington was origionally 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 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 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, appointed the master of the school, and lie, with the churchwardens, appointed the usher: the master and usher formed a corporation called the " Corporation of Master and Usher of 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 Maintaining five scholars in that college; these scholarships have now, under the authority of the University Commissioners been commuted for four exhibitions of £40 year each at the same college, tenable for three years. A former master, the Rev. T. Shield, B.D., who found the income of the school in 1807 about £100 a year, 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 something approaching 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 late master, the Rev. F. J. Gruggen, M.A. in 1848; and the school buildings were considerably improved during, his tenure of office. In 1875 the Endowed Schools Commissioners completely re-organized the management of the schools and removed the patronage from St. John's College to a local governing body, of which Admiral the Hon. A. Duncombe is chairman. Under the management of the Rev. Charles Gilmour Wilkinson, M.A. of Pembroke College, Cambridge, the present head master, the school has considerably increased in numbers, and additional buildings have been added. The school forms a handsome ornament to the southern entrance of the town.

The 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 Commissioners (lately holders of land in the parish), and Admiral the Hon. Arthur Duncombe, their lessee.

There is also a National Wesleyan school in Chapmangate.

The Cemetery, situated near the West Green, contains 2a. Or. 19p. was opened in 1857 and has two small buildings erected, one for the Church of England and the other for the Catholics and Dissenters.

The Odd Fellows' Hall, in Union street, was built in 1839, and is let for public meetings and lectures.

The trade includes brewing, malting, rope and twine making, brick making, agricultural implement manufactories, and in the neighbourhood are several corn mills.

The market is held every Saturday, and is well supplied with provisions. 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.

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 East Cottingwith, where it forms a communication with the river Derwent.

Admiral the Hon. Arthur Duncombe is lord of the manor-and lay rector and principal landowner, and holds a court-leet, baron and copyhold court, annually.
Pocklington parish comprises the townships of Yapham-with-Meltonby and Ousthorpe, containing altogether and area of 4.668 acres and in 1871 a population of 2,889. The township of Pocklington contains 2,520 acres; rateable-value, £10,965; and in 1871 a population of 2,622.
Parish Clerk, William Shaw.

Ousthorpe is a township of Pocklington, situate mile north-by-east from that place. It has some traces of a large moated mansion. The land is the property of Admiral the Hon. Arthur Duncombe and John Singleton, esq. The area is 330 acres; rateable value, £651; and the population in 1871 was 29.

Yapham and Meltonby are two hamlets and townships, about 1 mile apart, 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 chapel is a plain building, consisting of chancel and nave, with a bell turrret at the west end containing 2 bells: it was repaired in 1777-8. The register dates from the year 1559. The living is a chapelry united to the vicarage of Pocklington,. The rents of the chapel lands allotted at the incloseure, in 1733, are expended by an arrangement of the Commissioners of Charities, in one quarter to the repairs of the chapel and one fourth to the poor and one half to the school; the present feoffees have, by care and attention, much increased the charity. The land belongs to various owners: 3s. 4d. per annum is paid out of the Kilnwick-Percy estate to this township and 39 other parishes receive various sums annually, in all amounting to £10, called the Woods dole; 4s. per annum is also received out of a farm at Yapham, occupied by Henry Tindale and left by H. Barlow, esq. The soil is good loam, gravel and sand; subsoil, clay and gravel. The chief crops are wheat, barley, oats, beans and turnips. The township is well supplied with water from the Wold hills. The population of Yapham with Meltonby in 1871 was 238, and the joint acreage is 1,818; rateable value, £3,116.
