About 1 mile south-west of the town is the Pocklington canal, the property of the London and North Eastern Railway Company: the canal, made under the pro­visions of an Act passed in 1814, is about 9 miles in length and extends to East Cottingwith, where it forms a communication with the river Derwent.
The trustees of the late Capt. Harry Whitworth are lords of the manor and hold a court leet, baron and copyhold court: there are also a large number of small freeholders.

YAPHAM and MELTONBY are two hamlets, about 1 mile apart, and constitute a chapelry in Pockling­ton parish; the former is 2 miles north-north-west, and the later 2 north-by-west, from Pocklington. The chapel of St. Martin is a plain building, consisting of chancel, nave, south porch and a western turret containing 2 bells: it was repaired in 1777-8, and restored about 1904, at a cost of .£400, and has 100 sittings. The great or rectorial tithe, amounting to £365, belongs to the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, and under an instrument of apportionment, dated 12 June, 1844, a sum of £204 18s. 9d. has been assigned to the benefice of Pocklington, and the rest retained by the Commissioners towards the payment of a curate. The glebe land here amounts to 21 acres, and £10 a year, given by a former dean of York, also belongs to the benefice. Here is a Methodist chapel. The rents of the chapel lands allotted at the inclosure in 1733 are expended by an arrangement of the Charity Commis­sioners, one fourth being applied to the repairs of the chapel, one fourth to the poor and one half to the school. Richard L. English esq. is the principal land­owner: 35. 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 £10, called the Woods dole; 4s. yearly is also received out of a farm at Yapham, left by H.

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, all 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 4 years at St. John's College, Cambridge ; 2, the Ackroyd exhibition of £50 for 3 years at either Oxford or Cambridge, may be competed for by boys from this school; 3, the Ann Watson exhibitions of £25 each yearly & tenable for 4 years at any university, are similarly open ; 4, three County Council scholarships of £60 yearly each, tenable for 3 years, by natives of or residents in the East Biding, at any college or university approved by the County Council The following are tenable only at the school:—1, Ten local exhibitions for day boys, each of the yearly value of £10 ; 2, entrance scholarships for boarders, of £20 to £50 each yearly, awarded by examination; 3, a limited number of entrance exhibitions of £10 to £15 The revenues of the school arose mainly from land situated in various parts of the East Riding, & amounted to about £1,000 a year; the land has since been sold & the proceeds invested. 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 body of 12 members. Alderman F. Smith J.P chairman; Arthur J. Oliver, Regent street, clerk to the gover­nors. 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 a cost of about £6,000; in 1921 a swimming bath was added & in 1923 Dolman house was bought as an additional boarding house; in 1927 a new Assembly hall was built; in 1932 new laboratories, class rooms & art rooms were added at a cost of £7,500, and extra common room accommodation provided; these were opened by 3rd Viscount Halifax K.G-., P.O., G.C.S.I., G.C.I.E.: there are now (1937) three boarding houses & about 185 boys;  head  master,  Percy  Cooper  Sands  M.A., J.P. late fellow of St. John's College, Cambridge
