It has a post and money order office, of the name of Harewood End, under Ross; telegraph office, Hoarwithy. Acreage, 668; population, 92. The manor belonged to the Rnights Templars, passed to the Rnights Hospitallers, and subsequently to the Hoskyns. Harewood House is now the seat of the Parry family, who own the whole of the parish. An ancient forest, including the parish and extending beyond it, was called Harewood Forest, and contained the castle of Earl Ethelwold, who is supposed to have been assassinated by King Edgar.
