POCKLINGTON is a market and union town, and the head of a county court district, with a station on the York and Market Weighton branch of the North Eastern railway,  204 miles from London, 16 by rail east from York, 6¼ north-west from Market Weighton, 27 north-west from Hull, 30 south-west from Bridlington and 32 south-west (54 by rail) from Scarborough,in the Howdenshire division of the Riding, Wilton Beacon division of the wapen­take of Harthill, Wilton Beacon petty sessional divison, rural deanery of Pocklington, archdeaconry of the East Riding and diocese of York.

The town is lighted with gas, from works near the West Green,built in 1886, at a cost of £8,000, and the property of the Pocklington New Gas Co. Limited, and is supplied with water from works one mile east of the town, erected in 1890 by the Pocklington Water Works Co. Limited, but the main water supply is obtained from springs at Givendale, 3 miles distant; 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 Perpendicular style, consisting of chancel, with north chapel, clerestoried nave, aisles, transepts and a lofty embattled western tower, with pinnacles, containing a clock and 5 bells: there are eleven stained windows: the east window was erected by the late Admiral the Hon. Arthur Duncombe, of Kilnwick Percy ; and there are memorial windows to members' of the Loftus and Powell families: there are still some traces of the original Norman church: the font consists of a square basin of fossilized marble 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 Southeby, 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. 1360, discovered in the churchyard: on the pedestal is a modern inscription in Latin, which  translated reads:— " Here Paulinus preached in the year 627:" in the chancel is a large monument to the Denison family, formerly lords of the manor, over which is a carving in oak of " the Crucifixion," executed in Germany, about 1500; and well preserved: close to the foot of the pulpit is a stone to Margaret Easingwald, last prioress of the Benedictine nunnery of Wilberfoss: the church was partially restored and reseated in 1850; in 1854 the chancel walls were refaced, and in 1879 and 1889 further restorations were effected, at a cost of £1,150: the nave and aisles are now (1901) being restored at a cost of £2,300: there are 600 sittings.   The register dates from the year 1559. The living is a vicarage, so constituted in 1252, with, the chapelry of Yapham and Meltonby annexed, net yearly value £237, including 25 acres of glebe, witb residence, in the gift of the Archbishop of York, and held since 1897 by the Rev. George Herbert Stock B.A. of Durham University, rural dean of Pocklington, and chap­lain to Pocklington union.

The Endowed Grammar School, on West green, was originally connected with a guild in the parish church, called " the Society of Brethren of the Name of Jesus, the Blessed Virgin & St. Nicholas of Pocklington,"' the seal of which, together with an ancient silver cock­ing bell, 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 6th  year of Henry VIII. (24th May, 1514); & when subsequently,  in the reign of that monarch, ail such guilds, were suppressed, 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 & Fellows of St. John's College, Cambridge, under the arrangement then made., appointed the master of the-school, who, in turn with the church wardens, ap­pointed the usher; & the master & usher together formed a corporation, called the " Corporation- of Mas­ter & Usher of the Free Grammar School of  Pocklington," Attached to or connected with the school are-the following scholarships & exhibitions:—1, Four Dowman exhibitions each  of £40 yearly & tenable  for 3 years at St, John’s College, Cambridge;  2, the-Bishop Crewe exhibition of £40 yearly, tenable for two years at Oxford University & open to boys from the Grammar schools of Dayentry  & Pocklington; 3„ the Worsley augmentation fund, founded  by Miss Worsley, of  Clifton, for  the augmentation of open scholarships obtained by boys on leaving & transferred hither' from Daventry school; 4. the Ackroyd exhibi­tion of £50 for 3 years at either Oxford or Cambridge,, may be competed for by boys from this -school; 5.  the Ann Watson exhibitions of £25 each yearly  & tenable for 2 years at any  university,  are similarly open; 6, three County Council scholarship's of £60 yearly each, tenable for 2 years, by natives of or residents in the East Riding, at the Yorkshire College Leeds, Firth- College, Sheffield, Owens' College, Manchester, the Royal College of Science, South Kensing­ton, or  any other college  or university approved by the County Council;  7, exhibitions established by the governors at any place of higher education, or of scientific or professional training. The following are tenable only at the school:—1, Eight local exhibitions for day boys, each of the yearly value of £7 10s.; 2. foundation scholarships for boarders, of £20 each yearly, awarded by examination; 3, ten house scholarships, five senior & five junior, of £20 each yearly; 4, Worsley augmentation fund, founded & transferred as above, for increasing  scholarships tenable at the school; 5, a limited number of entrance scholarships at £20 each & of exhibitions of £15. The revenues of the school arise mainly from land situated in various parts of the East Riding, & amount to about £1,000 a year.   The Rev. T. Shields B.D. who became head master in 1807, succeeded in con­siderably augmenting the income of the school, & in 1818 commenced the rebuilding; of the school & 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 & transferred the patronage from St. John's College to a governing board of 12 members. Under the management of the late master, the Rev. Charles Gilmour Wilkinson M.A. of Pembroke College, Cambridge, the school considerably increased in num­bers.    During   1890-91   a   gymnasium,    chemical laboratory, infirmary & other buildings were erected, & in 1898 the school was further enlarged by the addi­tion of a new wing, at the cost of about £6,000 ; there are now (1901) about 150 boys; head master, Rev.
