Parish History

Ingleby Greenhow St Andrew is an Ancient Parish. Other places in the parish include: Greenhow and Battersby.

GREENHOW, a township, in the parish of Ingleby-Greenhow, union of Stokesley, W. division of the liberty of Langbaurgh, N. riding of York, 5½ miles (S. E. by E.) from Stokesley; containing 101 inhabitants. The Meinells, of Whorlton, appear to have been the earliest proprietors of whom there is any record, and from them the estate descended to the D'Arcys, with whom it remained till the time of Henry VIII., when it came to the crown, to which it was annexed up to the reign of James I., when it was bestowed upon the family of Foulis. The township comprises by computation 3050 acres, of which 338 are woods and plantations, and about 700 open moor, and is situated in one of the wildest parts of the district of Cleveland; that portion called Greenhow Bottom, is a narrow secluded vale, deeply intrenched with mountains.
