Snape  North Riding


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

SNAPE, a township in Well parish, N. R. Yorkshire; 3 miles S of Bedale. It contains the hamlet of Langley, and has a post-office under Bedale. Real property, £4,615; of which £18 are in quarries. Pop., 592. Houses, 127. The manor belongs to M. Milbank, Esq-S. Castle belonged anciently to the Fitz-Randolphs and the Nevilles; was rebuilt, about the time of Henry VI., by the Latimers; and now is partly a chapel of ease, and partly a ruin.
