Eastwood West Riding

 

In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Eastwood like this:

EASTWOOD, a chapelry in Keighley parish, W. R. Yorkshire; on the river Aire and the Lancashire and Yorkshire railway, in the Northeastern vicinity of Keighley. It was constituted in 1854. Post town, Keighley. Pop., 3, 442. Houses, 720. Eastwood House is a chief residence. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Ripon. Value, £150. Patron, alternately the Crown and the Bishop.

The location is that named as Eastwood, somewhat illegibly, on the nineteenth century First Series map. Additional information about this locality is available for Keighley
