Fraisthorpe

FRAISTHORPE, a parish, in the union of Bridlington, wapentake of Dickering, E. riding of York, 4 miles (S. S. W.) from Bridlington; containing 104 inhabitants. The living is a perpetual curacy, united to the living of Carnaby. The village of Auburn, here, has been reduced, by the encroachments of the sea, to a single farm containing about 300 acres of land; its chapel was totally destroyed by the waters about 60 years ago.
