The Archdeaconry of Richmond in the Eighteenth Century: Bishop Gastrell's 'Notitia', the Yorkshire Parishes, 1714-1525

This volume contains the information collected by Francis Gastrell (Bishop of Chester 1714-25) about the Yorkshire parishes within his doicese. His 'Notitia' of the diocese is a mine of information concerning townships, parishes, schools and charities, and gives a clear picture of the parishes in north-west Yorkshire in the reign of George I and an insight into how the churches, schools and charities operated.
