Eryholme

ERYHOLME, a chapelry, in the parish of Gilling, union of Darlington, wapentake of Gilling-East, N. riding of York, 5 miles (S. E. by S.) from Darlington; containing 212 inhabitants. It is on the south side of the Tees, and comprises 2103a. 1r. 7p.: plantations have been made on two of the farms. Coal is said to exist, but the attempts to find it have not been successful hitherto, though there appears some chance, from the broken nature of the ground, of meeting with it. The village is on a gentle acclivity, and commands delightful views of the Durham side of the dale. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the gift of the Vicar of Gilling, with a net income of £49; impropriators, the Landowners: the chapel is dedicated to St. Mary.
