Did You Know..?

CHAPELRY OF THE PARISH OF PONTEFRACT
From earliest times Knottingley formed a chapelry of the parish of Pontefract, its church, dedicated to the Saxon Saint, Botolph, and dating from the late eleventh century, serving as a chapel of ease for the manorial population. Ecclesiastical reorganisation in 1789 conferred a degree of autonomy on the burgeoning township which became a separate parish with full rites of baptism, matrimony and sepulture but remained a perpetual curacy under the patronage of the Vicar of Pontefract until 1846.
From Terry Spencer's 'Aspects of Civil Administration & Social Development in 19th Century Knottingley'.
