Acaster-Malbis (Holy Trinity)

ACASTER-MALBIS (Holy Trinity), a parish, in the union of York, partly in the Ainsty wapentake, W. riding, but chiefly in the wapentake of Ouse and Derwent, E. riding, of York, 4½ miles (S. by W.) from York; containing 748 inhabitants, of whom 322 are in the township of Acaster-Malbis. This place partly derives its name from the family of Malby, who flourished here for some centuries after the Conquest, until at length a daughter and heiress was married to Fairfax of Walton, created Viscount Emley. It comprises by computation 1839 acres, and is intersected by the navigable river Ouse. The living is a perpetual curacy; net income, £56; patron and impropriator, Sir F. Lawley, Bart. A school is endowed with land given by John Knowles in 1603.

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