Barton le Street St Michael


The Parish

The parish of Barton le Street lies in the south of the North Riding of Yorkshire close to its border with the East Riding. Barton le Street is located about 5 miles northwest of the market town of Malton. Barton le Street sits on the B1257 road which connects Malton with the large village of Helmsley. Barton le Street is a small and compact village with nmost properties either along the B1257 road or on a square of narrow lanes to its north, it sits at the foot of the Howardian Hills where those slopes run out onto the floodplain of the River Rye. Barton le Street would, therefore, had two differing land types available to its economy which would have been largely based on pastoral farming, sheep on the rising ground towards the hills and cattle on the softer ground of the floodplain. Largely man-made drains connect the village with the Rye which heads off eastwards to join the Derwent and swing around to the south eventually reaching the North Sea through the Humber Estuary. Barton le Street is sited at between 30 to 40 metres above the sea on sloping ground, the B1257 being higher than the northern portion of the village. Barton le Street parish was fairly typically sized for its area, it covered around 3,200 acres and would have supported a population of around 400 parishioners. In Domesday times Barton le Street was shared between the King and Count Robert of Mortain, collectively their lands could offer 13 ploighs as well as meadows and woodland.

The Church

St Michael's church sits at the heart of the village just a few metres north of the B1257. The church was almost totally rebuilt in 1871 but for once this was done with great restraint and retaining much of the original features, so much so that Pevsner is so moved to declare it " a sumptious small Norman church". The rebuild was totally in keeping with the Norman original building such that when additional features, such as the bellcote, were added they matched seamlessly into the collective style. The decoration of the doorways (composites of original and Victorian Norman) are such that Pevsner describes them as the "most exuberantly decorated in Yorkshire" - praise indeed from one so normally critical of restoration. The church is approached along Vutterwick Road and sits just to its east accessed by a short pathway and wooden gates. The churchyard is almost devoid of photographic restrictions.

The Records

Register No Covering Dates Deposited With Register Style Quality Standard Comments
1 6th May 1755 - 28th December 1760 Borthwick Institute - York - Reference - PR/BS/1 Plain, unruled book, a continuation of the extant composite register in contravention of Hardwicke's segregation & wording requirements Grade 1 Register - Few issues noted and a low likelihood of misreads None
2 3rd february 1761 - 15th December 1812 Borthwick Institute - York Bishops Transcripts in looseleaf folios Grade 5 Register - the condition of this register is such that the transcript carries a "health warning" as to the likelihood of being substantially incorrect The register covering this period is no longer available and the BTs were used to recover such entries as could be achieved. The 1st 20 years of this period are of such a poor quanlity as to contain entries that were completely unreadable and are hence omitted, after 1780 the quality is better described as Grade 2
3 13th May 1813 - 15th December 1836 Borthwick Institute - York - Reference - PR/BS/4 Standard Rose style preprinted and prenumbered Marriage register Grade 2 Register - not a perfect read but with a low likelihood of misreads None
