The Dean of York - Pocklington Manor
From Lawton's Collections Relative to the Dioceses of York and Ripon by George Lawton :
The Church of Pocklington, in which a Chantry was founded, was given by King Henry I to Gerard, Archbishop of York, and the Deans of York, together with the Chapels within the Soke therof, to be as free and quit from Espicopal jurisdiction as are the possessions of the Prebendaries of York, and a Vicarage was ordained therein, 8th November, 1252.
(Early Yorkshire Charters records this transfer around 1122).
In 1410 John Prophet (Dean of York) converts his residence in Pocklington into a Tythe Barn. (See references below).

The other interesting entry here is that of the Toll House owned by Robert Denison (Lord of the Manor). Toll Houses are usually associated with Turnpike Roads, but in this case was more likely for the payment of Market Tolls or Tithes for the Manor. It is perfectly situated off Market Place for this purpose, and near to the old Dean's Manor House/Tithe Barn for tithe collections.
An explanation of Market Tolls can be found here.

From the early 12th century Pocklington was the centre of the Dean of York's valuable East Riding estate.

His Pocklington manor included a manor house and garth, two mills, lands on West Green, in the town centre and along Burnby Lane and Kilnwick Road and a few town centre houses. He also collected church tythes from all Pocklington landowners.

His estate included lands and/or land and mill tythes in Allerthorpe; Hayton, Bielby and Storthwaite (Storwood); Barmby Moor; Kilnwick Percy; Yapham and Meltonby; Burnby; Millington; Fangfoss; East Givendale; Great Givendale; Grimthorpe and Ousethorpe and Waplington.

The Dean also maintained his own Peculiar Court of Pocklington that approved wills and leases in addition to ruling on ecclesiastical matters such as blasphemy and not going to church.

Many medieval Deans of York were absentee, and did not visit York, never mind Pocklington. One notable exceptions was John Prophete, dean from 1407-1416, and also Prebend of Bugthorpe and secretary and Keeper of the Privy Seal to King Henry IV. He is sometimes listed as "John Prophete of Pocklington" and was the person who decided that all the dean's houses had been let fall into disrepair by his predecessors, so he refurbished the house at Thornton to live in and converted the rest into tythe barns and farm buildings. He left instructions that he should be buried in his "parochial church of Pocklington" if he died in the East Riding (in the event he died in the south of England).

The dean's manor house at Thornton, next door to the church, survived until the 17th century. From the 16th century onwards the dean leased out the tythes, rather than collecting them himself, with the lessors often being notable East Riding dignatories. The tythes and peculiar were dissolved in the 19th century and dean's Pocklington estate was sold in 1853.

The reference is that Master Robert Pickering, Dean of York, claimed that William of Sayles and Stephen of Carlton in Lindrick 'by force and arms the close and house of the said Dean at Pocklington did enter and his goods and chattels to the value of £40 therein lying did take and carry away and other offences. The same Master Robert complains that the aforesaid William on St Bartholomew's Day 6 Edward II with force and arms, to wit, with swords, bows and arrows, and his goods and chattels, to wit, his corn, barley, oats, peasen and hay, says he has suffered loss and has damage to the value of £100.'
William denied the charges but Stephen admitted his guilt.
