About

South Kilvington is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Cheluitun in the Yarlestre hundred. The entry refers to the area around North Kilvington that was owned by Earl Edwin at the time of the Norman invasion and then granted to the Crown. Henry Percy, 4th Earl of Northumberland was said to have been sent here by King Henry VII to collect taxes to help raise more money for this campaign against France.

So, Percy was killed here on the village green in 1489 by a mob protesting against the taxation. This was part of the Yorkshire Rebellion – the people of the North had been affected by a poor harvest in 1488, already subjecting them to financial difficulty. After having to pay for military action in Scotland, they were not keen to do so again.
