Aike

AIKE, a township, partly in the parish of St. John, borough of Beverley, but chiefly in that of Lockington, union of Beverley, Bainton-Beacon division of the wapentake of Harthill, E. riding of York, 7 miles (N. by E.) from the town of Beverley; containing 98 inhabitants. This place comprises about 630 acres, of which upwards of 200 are in the parish of St. John: it was formerly an island, but by means of draining has been connected with the surrounding country, although it is still low and swampy. The tithes were commuted for land and a money payment, under an inclosure act passed in 1771.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 7th edition, published in 1848.
