Hampole  West Riding


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Hampole like this:

HAMPOLE, or HAMPALL, a township in Adwick-le-Street parish, W. R.Yorkshire; 5 miles NW of Doncaster. Acres, 1, 420. Real property, £, 499. Pop., 160. Houses, 34. A Cistertian nunnery was founded here, in 1170, by William de Clarefai; and was given, at the dissolution, to Francis Aislaby. A chapel, on the site of the nunnery, was built by the late Lord Rendlesham; was intended, and for some time used, as a chapel of ease; but is now a Wesleyan chapel. There is an endowed school, with £15 a year.
