William White 1840 Directory

ALLERTHORPE is a pleasant village and township, 2 miles S.W. of Pocklington, containing 167 inhabitants and 1430 acres of land, partly in the liberty of St. Peter, and belonging to various owners; but the Dean of York is approprator, and his lessees are Lord Oxmantoun and Capt. Arthur Duncombe, who have estates here, and are joint lords of the manor of Allerthorpe-with-Waplington, in right of their wives, the daughters and co-heiresses of the late John Wilmer Field, Esq. The copyholds are mosly subject to small fines certain and a few of them to arbitrary fines. Nearly 500 acres form an open common. The Lodge, a neat mansion, with handsome pleasure grounds, is the seat of S.W. Swiney, Esq., but belongs to Miss Hall, of York. Allerthorpe is a parochial chapelry, which includes Waplington, and is considered as a member of Pocklington parish, though its Church, a small ancient structure, with a single belfry and two large bells, is a perpetual curacy, united with Thornton vicarage, in the patronage of the Dean of York, and incumbancy of the Rev. Chpr. Rawlins, B.A., who has a neat parsonage house in the village. The school is endowed with the interest of £200, left by J. Hart, Esq., in 1823, for the education of nine free scholars. At an early period, Wm. Westoby bequeathed 8a. 15p. of land to the poor of this chapelry, but subject to the yearly payments of 11s. 8d., to the poor of Pocklington and Barmby-on-the-Moor, and 6s. 7d., as a quit-rent to the lord of the manor. The land now lets for £14 a year. Two acres of land have, from time immemorial, belonged in equal moeties to the poor and the incumbent, and is now let for £4 a year. Two houses, divided into five dwellings, occupied rent-free by poor families, were given to the chapelry by Wm. Bell, in 1765. The poor have 3s. 6d. yearly from Wood's charity.
