Newton Grange, N. R. (5) a ham-
let in the township and parish of Os-
waldkirk, wapentake of Rydale, 3 miles
S. from Helmsley. Here was born that
indefatigable collector of antiquities,
Robert Dodsworth, son of Matthew
Dodsworth, registrar of York Cathe-
dral ; he died in
1654, at the age of
69. Anthony h Wood says, that he
was a man of wonderful industry, hut
less judgment; always collecting, but
never publishing any thing. Here the
peevish old cynic is exactly drawing his
own character. Hearne says, that Dods-
worth’s judgment and sagacity were
equal to his diligence ;
120 volumes in
his own hand-writing, besides original
MSS., making altogether
162 volumes
in folio, concerning the ecclesiastical,
monastical, and genealogical antiquities
of Yorkshire, are now lodged in the
Bodleian library.
