South Ferriby - North Lincolnshire

    Entry from Kelly's Trade Directory for 1900
South Ferriby is a parish and pretty well-built village, on the south bank of the Humber, 3 miles west from Barton Station on the Great Central (late M S and L) railway and 7 west from New Holland, in the North Lindsey division of the county, parts of Lindsey, north division of Yarborough wapentake, Glanford Brigg union, Barton-on-Humber petty sessional division and county court district, rural deanery of Yarborough No. 1, archdeaconry of Stow and diocese of Lincoln.
The church of St Nicholas, which is but the mutilated remnant of a much larger church, is a singular structure, consisting of nave, south transept, north porch and an embattled tower, with pinnacles, at the south-east angle, containing 3 bells: over the porch is an ancient semicircular stone, on which is a sculptured a figure of St Nicholas, vested in alb and mitre, and holding a pastoral staff in his left hand; and on either side are symbolical figures of the sun and moon; in 1869 the church was repewed and restored at a cost of £350, and in 1889 was again restored and a sacrarium built at a cost of £1,092, by the Right Rev. Bishop Tozer D.D. then rector: there are 200 sittings. The register dates from the year 1538. The living is a rectory, net yearly value £230, including 127 acres of glebe and residence, in the gift of the Bishop of Lincoln, and held since 1889 by the Rev. James Spawforth. From ecclesiastical records it appears that the parish was formerly divided into North and South Ferriby. There is a church estate, consisting of 15 acres and 5 cottages, held in trust by the rector and church wardens and R N Sutton-Nelthorpe esq. of Scawby, the Rev. R C W Ekins, vicar of Horkstow, W K Waddingham esq. of Elsham and W Walker esq. of Hull, the product of which is to be expended in the maintenance of the church and the services thereof. There are Wesleyan and Primitive Methodist Chapels. The temperance Hall is a structure of brick, erected in 1882, at a cost of £130. There is also a large reading room, erected in 1884, by R N Sutton-Nelthorpe esq. at a cost of £200. Brick and tile making is extensively carried on here. There is a quarry of chalk and stone. Ferriby Hall, a mansion of brick, is now in the occupation of William Tombleson esq. The principal landowners are Robert Nassau Sutton-Nelthorpe esq. of Scawby, who is lord of the manor, William Kitchen Waddingham esq. of Elsham, and the rector. The soil is chalky; subsoil, chalk. The chief crops are wheat, turnips and barley. The area is1,594 acres of land, 20 of water, 441 tidal water and 365 of foreshore; rateable value, £2,902; the population in1891 was 638.

FERRIBY SLUICE, 1 mile west, is a hamlet in this parish, on the bank of the river Humber and the Wear Dyke. A lecture hall has been erected here by M Clark esq. of Winteringham Hall, at a cost of £100.
