In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Huddleston like this:
HUDDLESTON AND LUMBY, a township in Sherburn parish, W. R. Yorkshire; on the Leeds and Selby railway, 2 miles E by N of Milford Junction, and 8 NNE of Pontefract. Acres, 1, 381. Real property, £1, 572; of which £70 are in quarries. Pop., 267. Houses, 55. The manor belongs to Lord Ashtown. Huddleston Hall is a very ancient mansion; was formerly the seat of the Hungate family; and is now occupied by John Woodward, Esq. A fine white building stone, known as Huddleston quarry stone, and which was the material of Henry VII.'s chapel at Westminster, is worked.
