Moor Edge Stone
Moor Edge Stone
Another dull morning with a sky of corrugated grey cloud clipping the top of Roseberry. So an old favourite, the Moor Edge Stone marking the boundary between the parishes of Newton-under-Roseberry and Pinchinthorpe. Rendered in black and white in an attempt to emphasise the heavily weathered inscription of “TKS 1815” standing for Thomas Kitchingham Staveley and a date when the moor was enclosed.

Thomas Kitchingham Staveley was the Lord of the Manor of Newton although his seat seems to be at North Stainley cum Sleningford, a village near Ripon. It would be good to know how much Staveley visited Newton. He is recorded as the patron of the rebuilding of the chancel for the church in Newton, St. Oswald’s and he must have an affection for the hill as he named his daughter Roseberry.

In 1832 Staveley was elected as an MP for Ripon in the first elections to take place after the Great Reform Act of the same year. This act was a landmark on the path to the parliamentary democracy that we know today. It went some way to reforming the constitution of parliament, with the redistribution of seats and the creation of new constituencies were created such as Manchester which previously had no representation. A uniform franchise was created giving the vote to all householders who paid a yearly rental of £10. Of course, women still had no vote.
