Cleveland  North Riding


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

CLEVELAND, a territory in the north of N. R. Yorkshire; extending along the Tees and the sea from the upper vicinity of Yarm to the western vicinity of Whitby. It corresponds nearly with the wapentake of Langbaurgh, and is 28 miles long and 15 miles broad. It gives the title of Duke to the family of Vane; and it produced the original stock of hunting and draught horses, known as Cleveland bays.
