ATWICKE, (P.) in the wap. and liberty of Holderness; 2 mls. N. of Hornsea. A small, though pleasant village, situated near the sea, from which it suffers greatly by the encroachments of the water, particularly in stormy weather; the greatest part of this village stands at the junction of three roads, in the centre of which stands an old stone cross, which, in the year 1786, was situated at the distance of thirty-three chains and sixtythree links from the sea, from the rudeness of the structure it appears to be of great antiquity, there is round its base a latin inscription, but rendered unintelligible by the dilapidations of time. The church, of which the King is patron, is a plain Gothic strucThe ture, dedicated to St. Lawrence, Rev. James Wilson is the vicar and surrogate, for the dean and chapter: here is also a Methodist chapel, built in 1821; likewise a public school, endowed with about 30% per annum, paid out of the several charities of this place. Edward Fenwick, in the year 1689, left by deed one Oxgang of land, situated in Bedford, the

AUGHTON, (P.) in the wap. of Harthill; 8 miles NNW. of Howden. A parochial village and vicarage, the present incumbent of which is the Rev. W. Dean, and Mosley the patron. This village was the residence of Robert Aske, who in the year 1536, headed the insurrection called the "Pilgrimage of Grace." Aske is represented in history as a man of daring and enthusiastic courage, a gentleman by birth, and of considerable talents. In the latter part of the reign of Charles 1. Sir Richard Aske was master of the crown office, and one of the council of the regicides. He appears to have been the last of the family that resided at Aughton. There are no remains of the ancient mansion or castle : but the site is marked by ditches or moats one within another, with the interior vallum raised to a great height, which shows it to have been a place of considerable strength. It is situated near the eastern banks of the Derwent. Population, 259. Maltby Wm. Steel John Stephen Wm. Webster John Wilkinson Robert Young Wm.

BAINTON, (P.) in the wap. of Harthill, and liberty of Holderness; 6 miles SW. of Great Driffield. Here is an ancient

parish church, dedicated to St. Andrew. The living is a rectory, of the value of 1000l. per annum, in the patronage of St. John's College, Oxford, and when vacant is bestowed on the oldest B. D. of the college. The present incumbent is the Rev. John Bell, D. D. There are two chapels here, one belonging to the Wesleyan and the other to the Primitive Methodists. In former times a Beacon was erected near this village, for the purpose of alarming the surrounding country on the approach of danger, and this circumstance has given name to that division of Harthill called Bainton Beacon. William le Gross, a Knight of Malta, and Earl of Albemarle, was buried in this church. Population, 300.

A pleasant village situated at the north-

by the people of the neighbouring villages,
who come here to purchase gravel to repair
their roads with, which is left in abundance

The church is a very ancient building, dedi-
cated to All Saints, of which the Rev. John
Gilby is rector; in the interior is a marble
monument, representing in full figure a
Scotch Lord, in armour, with a griffin at
his feet. The nobleman whose memory this
monument commemorates was the lord of
the manor, which was given to him for his
valour and essential services rendered to his
country. There are here four alms-houses,
Boynton, for the comfort of four poor
or hospitals, erected in 1726, by Sir Griffith
widows of this place, and endowed with the
annual sum of £15. to be divided equally
