The Family History
Leonard Reresby due to bad debts incurred by his wastrel brother William had sold Thrybergh to John Saville in the year 1705.
The Saville family were not to remain as Lords of the manor for a long period of time, and this was due to the lack of issue [ Lack of male heirs ] when the estate was passed on to Elizabeth Finch [ nee Saville ] daughter of John Saville. Elizabeth had married John Finch, and they had a son named Saville Finch who married Judith Fullerton. Saville and Judith had no male heir and the estate was passed to Weston Fullerton. So in a period of 100 years the estate passed through three families.
Heneage Finch who was the 2nd son of Heneage Earl of Nottingham was entered of the inner temple for the study of law 13th January 1678. He was appointed Solicitor General from which office he was removed by king James IL 21st April 1686. In 1702 he was chosen to compliment Queen Anne on the part of the university, on her visit to Oxford. In consideration of his great merits and talents was created baron of Guernsey 15th March 1702-3. On the accession of King George 1 26th October 1714 he was created Earl of Aylesford.
He married Elizabeth the daughter and co-heir of Sir John Banks of Aylesford co Kent bart and by her [ who died 1743 ] had issue. [ Elizabeth's sister Mary Banks married John Saville owner of Thrybergh Park ]
Heneage Finch baron of Guernsey and Earl of Aylesford had a 1st son Heneage [ who inherited] and a 2nd son John Finch who married his cousin Elizabeth Saville daughter and heir of John Saville [ who married Mary Banks] of Methley co York esq. and died 1740, leaving issue by her [ who died 28th October 1767 ] a son named Saville Finch. Saville had a sister Mary Finch
Saville Finch M. P. for Malton 1761-1780 married Judith Fullerton, and she inherited the Thrybergh Estate when Saville died.
The Church had a School by around 1715, this was encouraged by Elizabeth Saville, at this time boys only were taught.
In the following month 2nd July,1718 William
Savile of Mexbrough, gentleman, to Charles Savile of Thrybergh, esquire. The
parsonage and rectory of Mexbrough, etc. for £1500.
In 1739 John Finch Esquire had the manor of Thrybergh surveyed and a map was produced.
Elizabeth Finch's gift to St. Leonard's church by will in 1760, Rent charge of 10L. 10s per annum for teaching ten poor children of the parish. This was a great gift as now the village had a school. She also saw to it that the Rectory which was rather dilapidated at the time was rebuilt, The old rectory was demolished and replaced with a house that had 12 rooms by Elizabeth in 1753, which no doubt pleased the then vicar no end.
Elizabeth Finch was to bring back an air of respectability to the village of Thrybergh after her husbands death.
The Village inn which had seen the downfall of William Reresby and had attracted unsavoury characters to the village was closed, and gambling was not permitted.
Perhaps one thing she introduced was not too popular to the good folks of Thrybergh, and that was the introduction of compulsory attendance at church on a Sunday, not just the once , but twice on the day. To enforce this fines were issued for non attendance.
One has to admire this lady, for she indeed improved the village and the lives of it's inhabitants, and she is remembered well on a plaque in the Rectory, and also on a stone tablet situated in the chancel of the church dedicated to Elizabeth and her husband John.

"Dreading school, I absented myself from it during the summer months of the second year- Playing truant about Dalton, Deign, and Silverwood or Thrybergh Park, where I stole duck eggs, mistaking them for the eggs of wild birds, and was brought before Madame Finch. She seeing what a simpleton I was, released me with a reprimand!"
