Myton  East Riding


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

MYTON, a sub-district in Holy Trinity and St. Mary parish, Hull district, E. R. Yorkshire; within Hullborough, and comprising the wards of North Myton and South Myton. Pop. of N. M. in 1851, 12, 639; in 1861, 15, 485. Houses, 2, 907. The workhouse, the infirmary, and the borough lunatic asylum are here; and, at the census of 1861, had respectively 328, 123, and 122 in-mates. Pop. of S. M. in 1851, 19, 923; in 1861, 24, 581. Houses, 5, 239. The jail, the penitentiary, and a convent are here; and, at the census of 1861, had respectively 155, 36, and 30 inmates.

The location is that of Hull Union Workshop, and is approximately half way between where the names "North Myton Ward" and "South Myton Ward" appear on the Ordnance Survey 1:10,560 map of Yorkshire of 1855-6, accessible on the site; neither name seems to refer to a distinct settlement. Additional information about this locality is available for Kingston upon Hull
