Ingerthorpe

INGERTHORPE, a township, in the parish and liberty of Ripon, though locally in the wapentake of Claro, W. riding of York, 4 miles (S. S. W.) from Ripon; containing 46 inhabitants. This place appears, from the numerous mounds on its surface, in some of which ancient foundations of buildings and fragments of stained glass have been discovered, to have been at a remote period of considerable importance, though at present it can scarcely be denominated a hamlet. The township comprises about 550 acres, chiefly the property of Mrs. Wilberforce, widow of the late William Wilberforce, Esq., M.P.

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