Parish History[edit | edit source]

Carlton Miniott is an Ecclesiastical Parish in the county of Yorkshire, created in 1747 from chapelry partly in Thirsk, Yorkshire Genealogy Ancient Parish and partly in Kirby Knowle, Yorkshire Genealogy Ancient Parish.

The church of ST. LAWRENCE at Carlton Miniott, which was rebuilt in 1896, replaces an older building. It consists of a chancel, nave and north vestry, and is of brick and stone in the style of the 15th century. The roof is gabled and tiled. Over the east gable of the nave is a timber bell-turret with a slated spire, containing one bell.

The plate consists of a silver chalice, paten and flagon, all of which have the London hall-marks for the year 1876.

The registers begin in 1706.
