Coneythorpe

CONEYTHORPE, a township, in the parish of Goldsborough, Upper division of the wapentake of Claro, W. riding of York, 4ΒΌ miles (E. N. E.) from Knaresborough; containing 118 inhabitants. It comprises by computation 800 acres of land, mostly the property of Lord Stourton. At this place is a large tumulus called Claro Hill, which either gives its name to, or receives it from, the wapentake of Claro, and on which, it is said, the councils of the wapentake were of old wont to be held.

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