Return of Owners of Land 1873

A survey taken of all owners of 1 acre or more of land in England and Wales outside the Metropolis.

The table below was extracted from the government publication presenting the results of the suvey which appeared in 1875. It shows the amount of land held in the West Riding by Malhamdale residents, most of which would be in the immediate area. It doesn't neecessarily show the Malhmdale land owned by outside landlords, one exception being George Serjeantson's West Riding lands which are mainly in Malhamdale, his main residence, the estate at Camphill, Bedale amounts to a little over 50 acres and is listed in the North Riding Returns. Also the Rev Roundell owned a small amount and various other unknown landlords held land in Malhamdale too. John Procter also had estates at Giggleswick, Clapham and Bentham which will be included in the figure shown below.
