Swine

History of St Mary’s church, Swine-in-Holderness, Yorkshire.

This tiny village is situated a mere 5 miles North East of the suburbs of Hull.

There was almost certainly a church at Swine in Holderness by 1086, however the only recording of this is the manor records when a priest was present.  Swine Priory was founded in 1150, so a church with both nun’s facilities and lay facilities was in place by that time.  The Nun’s Chaplain was supposed to provide a perpetual vicar to the parish, but diocesan records show that in 1308 the priory was castigated for failing to provide.  The church was cruciform in structure, with the lay end, unusually at the east end, and the Nun’s west of the central crossing tower.   Shortly after the dissolution the Nun’s part was demolished, with only a few remains visible by 1784  It appears that the choir stalls were removed from the Nun’s Church and placed in the parish church (thankfully).

I have been unable to find an official website, but this site gives much useful information on Swine history.
