"Richmondshire Churches" contains over 250 pages, and well over 50 plates. It deals with 10 churches mainly in the S.E. part of Richmondshire: Burneston, Catterick, Hornby, Kirkby Wiske, Kirklington, Patrick Brompton, Pickhill, Wath and Wensley. There are around 20 pages for each church and these include lots of names of the people concerned, lists of Clergy, a description of the church and a history of the church. There are several pedigrees (or part pedigrees) for some of the more influential families: Harrison of York, Mountford of Hornby, Lascelles of Breckenborough and Sowerby, Musters, Wandesford, Neville (1209-1270), Scrope, and the Descent of the Manors of Tanfield and Wath.
