Fitling

FITLING, a township, in the parish of Humbleton, union of Skirlaugh, Middle division of the wapentake of Holderness, E. riding of York, 11 miles (E. N. E.) from Hull; containing 131 inhabitants. It appears to have been at a very early date the property of the hospital of St. John of Jerusalem, to the prior of which it was granted for making a chantry for the souls of the Earl of Albemarle and all the lords of Burstwick. The manor consists of 1420 acres, and is co-extensive with the township: the village is pleasantly situated, and the Hall commands an extensive prospect.

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