Allerton Mauleverer  West Riding


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

ALLERTON-MAULEVERER, a township and a parish in Knaresborough district, W. R. Yorkshire. The township includes Hopperton; and lies on an affluent of the Nidd, at the Allerton r. station, 4½ miles ENE of Knaresborough. Pop., 261. Houses, 52. The parish includes also the township of Clareton. ...

Post Town, Whixley under York. Acres, 2,300. Real property, £3,639. Pop., 283. Houses, 55. The property is all in one estate. It belonged anciently to the family of Mauleverer; passed to Lord Galloway; and was sold, since 1785, to successively the Duke of York, Colonel Thornton, and Lord Stourton. The mansion on it, the seat of Lord Stourton, is a superb structure, and was called some time Thornville-Royal, but now Allerton-Mauleverer House. Clare hill, on the estate, is a remarkable eminence. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Ripon. Value, £63. Patron, Lord Stourton. The church is tolerable. The Roman Catholics have a chapel, a school, and a cemetery. An alien Benedictine priory was founded here in the time of Henry II., and given by Henry VI. to King's College, Cambridge.
