Near this village is Marston Moor,
celebrated for the defeat sustained by
Prince Rupert, July 2, 1644, from the
parliamentary army, The minute par-
ticulars of this battle, the most sangui-
nary which occurred during the dismal
period of the civil wars, are variously
related, but it appears that the right
wing of the royal army, commanded by
Prince Rupert, was totally routed by the
left wing of the parliamentarians, led on
by the Earl of Manchester and Crom-
well, while the left wing of the royal-
ists completely defeated the right of
their adversary; the two victorious
wings, after pursuing to some distance
their flying enemies, returned to the
field of battle, and by a singular coin-
cidence each army occupied the same
ground that the other had possessed in
the commencement of the action, and
both sides were equally surprized that
they must renew the battle ere they
could claim the victory : the conflict
was now desperate, but the royal army
was at length entirely routed, and pur-
sued within a mile of York : this city
soon after surrendered itself to the
parliamentary generals, which circum-
stance ultimately led to the total ruin
of the royal cause. The parish of Mar-
ston contains the townships of Angram

Marton Lodge is the seat of Bartholo-
mew Rudd, Esq. Marton is rendered
memorable by the birth of Capt. James
Cook, in 1728, undoubtedly the great-
est circumnavigator which modern ages
have produced; and if he is surpassed
by Columbus in the importance of his
discoveries, and the romantic danger
of his enterprises, he equals the great
Genoese admiral in coolness, perse-
