Hamphall-Stubbs

HAMPHALL-STUBBS, a township, in the parish of South Kirkby, union of Doncaster, N. division of the wapentake of Strafforth and Tickhill, W. riding of York, 7 miles (N. W.) from Doncaster; containing 23 inhabitants. This township, which, from its contiguity to that of Hampole, was formerly united with it for the support of the poor, comprises about 220 acres. The ancient manor-house, which is situated on an eminence commanding some fine views, was newly fronted in the castellated style, about eighteen years since, with stone obtained within the demesne, a material of very durable texture, and beautifully variegated with fossil shells. A rent-charge of £50 has been awarded as a commutation for the vicarial tithes.
