Note: In 1866, Stocksfield Hall became a civil parish. This followed the Poor Law Amendment Act 1866, in which Church of England parishes, extra-parochial areas, townships and chapelries, became "civil parishes" which could set their own poor rate (tax). Stocksfield Hall Civil Parish was abolished in 1887 and absorbed into Broomley Parish (now known as Stocksfield Civil Parish).
