Hellaby

HELLABY, a hamlet, in the parish of Stainton, union of Doncaster, S. division of the wapentake of Strafforth and Tickhill, W. riding of York, 5ΒΌ miles (E.) from Rotherham; containing 30 inhabitants. This place, in Domesday book called Helgebi, was probably so termed from its having been the by or residence of a person named Ella among the Saxons. The monks of Roche Abbey had a little property here, and among other landowners occur the family of Fretwell, who lived in the 16th and 17th centuries. Hellaby Hall is now a farmhouse.
