Humberton, with Milby

HUMBERTON, with Milby, a township, partly in the parish of Kirby-on-the-Moor, wapentake of Hallikeld, N. riding, and partly in the parish of Aldborough, Lower division of the wapentake of Claro, W. riding, of York, 2½ miles (N. N. E.) from Boroughbridge; containing 182 inhabitants. It is situated on the north side of the river Ure, and comprises by computation 2320 acres of land. The Ure, which separates the township from Aldborough, was crossed by a wooden bridge, at Milby, before the Conquest, and some remains of the bridge are still visible when the water is low. The hamlet of Humberton lies about a mile to the west of the Swale.
