Aldfield  West Riding


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

ALDFIELD, a township and a chapelry in Ripon parish, W. R. Yorkshire. The township lies on the rivulet Skell, 4 miles SW of Ripon r. station. Post Town, Ripon. Acres, 1,225. Real property, £1,375. Pop., 128. Houses, 27. A sulphuretted spring exists here, in a picturesque spot; and, but for being so near Harrowgate, would probably be in high request. ...

The chapelry comprises the townships of Aldfield, Studley-Roger, and Studley-Royal, and bears the name of Aldfield-with-Studley. Pop. in 1851, 327. The living is a p. curacy in the diocese of Ripon. Value, £72. Patron, Countess Cowper.
