Local Government



In 1664 five recusants from Barmby were mentioned. A Quaker meetinghouse was licensed in 1707 and in 1743 there was a Quaker family in the parish. In 1779 an Independent meeting-house was registered. The Methodists had 12 members at Barmby in 1787, 9 in 1788, increasing to 26 in 1818.
A Wesleyan Methodist chapel was registered in 1807; rebuilt on an enlarged site in 1869, it was still in use in 1974.
Houses registered for dissenting worship in 1812 and 1820, and a building licensed for use as a chapel in 1825, may have been Primitive Methodist meeting-places; a Primitive Methodist 'chapel' certainly existed in 1831. Registered in 1834, it was presumably a new chapel, but it closed in the 1930s and was used as a dwelling-house by 1974.


In 1743 there was a school at Barmby in which the parish clerk gave religious instruction. Twenty children were taught in an un-endowed school in 1819. A schoolmaster teaching reading, writing, and accounts to 8-12 children was employed in 1824 by the trustees of the Poor's Land charity, who also provided coal, stationery, and books. In 1835 there were two schools in which 38 pupils were taught at their parents' expense. There were two dame schools in 1844 and a private school conducted by a master at Barmby. In 1845 a National school and master's house were built on a site given by Arthur Duncombe, who also contributed £180 towards the cost.
Between 1906 and 1938 attendance was usually about 70, though it fell to 55 in 1918 and rose to 87 in 1931. The school was enlarged to accommodate 140 children in 1934, but in 1955 the senior pupils were transferred to Pocklington and the school was reorganized as a junior and infants' school. The first part of a new school on a site in the north of the village was opened in 1974, when the old building was also still used, having 84 pupils on the roll.
