Excerpt from Yorkshire Church Plate, Vol. 1: Containing the City of York, the North Riding, the East Riding
At Thornton Watlass, a York cup of 1628 was inadvertently sold by auction, in 1900, amongst the effects of a deceased rector. It only fetched eleven shillings. Even SO ... recently as 1902, the late vicar and churchwardens of North Grimston deliberately exchanged the ancient plate belonging to the parish for a set of modern and comparatively worthless silver vessels. It may reasonably be hoped that one effect of this work will be to render such a regrettable mistake as the former less frequent, and such a grave error as the latter more difficult.
