Pocklington is a parish, market and union town, head of a county court district and station on the York and Market Weighton branch of the North Eastern railway, 195 miles from London, i6| by rail east from York, 16¼ north-west from Market Weighton, 27 north-west from Hull, 27 south­west from Bridlington, and 32 south-west from Scar­borough, in the Howdenshire division of the Riding, Wilton Beacon division of the waperitake of Harthill, Wilton Beacon petty sessional division, rural deanery of Pockling­ton, archdeaconry of the East Riding and diocese of York.

The town is lighted with gas, from new works constructed in 1886 ; these works, situated near the West Green, were built at a cost of £8,000, and are the property of the Pock­lington New Gas Co. Limited ; a considerable stream rises near Millington and Great Givendale, and in its course through the parish works several mills and empties itself into the River Derwent.

The church of All Saints is a cruciform building of stone, in the Early English and Perpendicular styles, consisting of chancel, with two north chapels, clerestoried nave, aisles, transepts and a lofty embattled western tower, with pinna­cles, containing a clock and 5 bells : the stained east window was erected by Admiral the Hon. Arthur Duncombe, of Kilnwick Percy; there is also a memorial window to the Loftus family, presented 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 font is a square basin on a circular pedestal: there are several memorials to the Dol­man and other families, including an elegant mural monu­ment to Thomas Dolman esq. ob. 1589 ; another to Robert Southbee, or Sotherby, ob. 1594 ; and a third to Robert Denison esq. d. 1829, and his wife, d. 1837 : at the west end of the church is a beautifully carved cross, c. 1350, discovered in the churchyard: in the chancel is a large monument of the Denison family, formerly lords of the manor, over which is a carving in oak of " the Crucifixion," supposed to have been executed by Albert Dürer or one of his pupils : there are 600 sittings. The register dates from the year 1559. The living was constituted a vicarage in 1252, and endowed with the small tithes of the parish, tithe rent-charge £52, net income £266, including 25 acres of glebe with residence, in the gilt of the Archbishop of York, and held since 1876 by the Rev. John Henry Wicksteed m.a. of Worcester Col­lege, Oxford.

The Catholic church, dedicated to St. Mary and St. Joseph, in Union street, opened m 1863, was built from the designs of Messrs. Hadfield of Sheffield, and consists of nave with eastern apse ; it has three stained windows and sittings for 120 persons; attached to the church is a residence for the priest, the Rev. P. O'Brien.

There is a Congregational chapel, with an endowment of £10 yearly, and Wesleyan and Primitve Methodist chapels.
The Cemetery,  situated near the West Green, and opened in 1857, contains 2A. or. 19p. and has two small chapels, one for the Church of England and the other for Catholics and Dissenters; it is under the control of a Burial Board of 9 members.

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 which, together with deeds and documents belonging to the school, is still preserved. The guild was founded by John Dolman ll.d. archdeacon of Suffolk (one of a family who were for centuries lords of the manor of Pocklington), in the seventh year of Henry VIII. (1515-16); and when subsequently, in the reign of that monarch, all such guilds were destroyed, the property originally left to the guild was preserved by the exertions of the founder's family for the benefit of the school: the Master and Fellows of St. John's College, Cam­bridge, under the arrangement then made, appointed the master of the school, who, in turn with the churchwardens, appointed the usher ; and the master and usher formed 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 to the Master and Fellows of St. John's College, for the purpose of maintaining five scholars in that college; these scholarships have now, under the authority of the University Commis­sioners, been commuted for four exhibitions of £40 a year each at the same college, tenable for three years. The Rev. T. Shield b.d. who became head master in 1807, succeeded in considerably augmenting the income of the school, now about £1,200 a year, and in 1818, commenced the rebuilding of the school and master's house, eventually completed in 1848 by the Rev. F. J. Gruggen m.a. 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 12 members, of which Admiral the Hon. A. Duncombe is chairman. Under the management of the late master, the Rev. Charles Gil-mour Wilkinson m.a. of Pembroke College, Cambridge, the school considerably increased in numbers, and additional buildings were added. The Rev. Herbert London m.a. of St. John's College, Cambridge, is the present head master.

The Odd Fellows' Hall, in Union street, built in 1839, is let for public meetings and lectures, and will hold 250 per­sons.

The Wilson Memorial Hospital was built in 1880 in memory of the late Thomas Wilson m.d. of Pocklington, and contains six beds.

The local trade includes brewing, malting, rope and twine making and brick making; there are agricultural implement manufactories, and in the neighbourhood 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 gth of November is a statute fair 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, made under the provisions of an Act passed in 1814, is about 9 mites in length and extends to East Cottingwith, where it forms a communication with the river Derwent.

Admiral the Hon. Arthur Duncombe d.l., J.P. of Kilnwick Percy, 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. The township of Pock­lington contains 2,520 acres ; rateable value, £10,739 the population in 1881 was 2,733, including 88 officers and inmates in the workhouse.

Ousthorpe is a township of Pocklington, situated 1½ miles north-by-east from that place. There are traces here of a large moated mansion. The great tithe, amounting to £71, belongs to the Dean of York. The land is the property of Admiral the Hon. Arthur Duncombe. The area is 330 acres ; rateable value, £585 ; the population in 1881 was 12.

Yapham. and Meltonboy 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 and a western turret containing 2 bells: it was repaired in 1777-8 and has 100 sittings. The register dates from the year 1559. The living is a chapelry united to the vicarage of Pocldington. The great tithe, amounting to £365, belongs to the Dean of York. The rents of the chapel lands al­lotted at the inclosure in 1733, are expended, by an ar­rangement of the Commissioners of Charities, one fourth being applied to the repairs of the chapel, 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. yearly is paid out of the Kilnwick Percy estate to this township and 39 other parishes receive various sums annually, in all amounting to called the Woods dole; 4s. yearly is also received out of a farm at Yapham, 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 joint acreage of Yapham with Meltonby is 1,818; rateable value, £2,882 ; the population in 1881 was 235.
