Study Description 

This study builds a picture of the heritage of Malton. How did the town evolve? What have been the key events? Who lived here? Where can you find out more information? You will find the focus of my website is Malton in the Victorian era.

In 1138, Malton was burned down by the then Archbishop of York in order to flush out the Scots occupying it at the time. Subsequent to the rebuilding, it became known as ‘New Malton’ and this is its more correct designation today. This also provides a clear distinction from ‘Old Malton’ just about one mile away. This website primarily focuses on ‘New Malton’ but due to proximity will occasionally stray into Old Malton and Norton.
