York; market, Saturday; fairs, Janu-
ary 15, August 2, September 22. The
corporation consists of a mayor, nine
aldermen, a recorder, and two bailiffs;
it sends two members to parliament,
a privilege first granted 25d Edward I.,
but ceased till it was resumed the first
year of Edward VI. The right of elec-
tion is in the burgesses, whose freedom is
gained by descent, or servitude of seven
years to a freeman, residing only in the
borough, a judicious distinction which
takes place in very few instances else-
where in England; the number of
voters is about 200. The town con-
sists chiefly of one long street, and it
is a cheerful place of residence; for-
merly it was a port, connected with the
Humber by a navigable creek, but as
Hull flourished, Hedon declined;. be-
sides the present church of St. Austins,
here are the almost obliterated remains
