Arram

ARRAM, a district, in the parish of Atwick, union of Skirlaugh, N. division of the wapentake of Holderness, E. riding of York, 11½ miles (N. E.) from Beverley; containing 50 inhabitants. This place, in Domesday book styled Argun, and in other records Ergham, came at an early period into the possession of Meaux Abbey, to which institution Sir Steven Ergham gave some land here about 1190: the canons of Bridlington also had some interest in the property. The manor comprises about 500 acres: the manor-house, a neat residence, was built about the time of James I., but has been much modernised.

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