14 Robert Marshall was collated to the living 10 Jan., 1541-2; on his death he was succeeded by James Plumer (inst. 14 Oct., 1560), who had been curate from 1542 to 1560; he died in 1569 (Y. A. J. ix. 185). It will be seen that at the Visitation in 1548 the clergy of Aldborough did not appear. This vicarage was appropriated to the Dean and Chapter of York.

The clergy of these chapelries are given under Gilling. East Cowton is apparently a mistake for South Cowton
