I, North Riding, am for spaciousness renown'd,
Our mother Yorkshire's eld'st, who worthily is crown'd
The Queen of all the Shires.

Speech of the North Riding,
This book is dedicated to the memory of my beloved Father, JOHN OUTHWAITE TROTTER, whose public work during a life of 82 years spent wholly in the North Riding was witness that Englishmen give time and energy in as great a degree as formerly to the affairs of their district and county; and of my dear friend MARY LOUISA STRETTON without whose encouragement it might never have been written.
First words
In the following chapters an attempt is made to show the working of the Parish in the Seventeenth Century, the powers and duties of its officials, their interaction and relation to the supervisory jurisdiction of the Church and the local Magistracy. (Introduction)
During the Middle Ages the parish was the domain of the church. It was first recognised by the state as an integral part of the commonwealth in the sixteenth century.
