About the area
Boynton is a small village with only one main street which crosses the B1253 road from York to Bridlington.
At the last census in 2011 Boynton Parish had a population of 229.
Boynton Hall as seen today has evolved in 4 major phases from an original late medieval hall house.
It fell to the Strickland family in 1549 and was expanded around 1600 into an H shaped plan, with central hall. The façade was of daipered brickwork with some tooled sandstone ashlar, particularly at the quoins, purloined from Bridlington Priory. A dove-cot was built in the garden of similarly purloined masonry. A banqueting hall was built in the garden, of brick. There was a long gallery in the attic storey.
The house is currently owned by Richard Marriott a descendant of the Strickland family.
The park was laid out between 1725 and 1779 and is substantially in tact
After 1684, the house underwent major transformation once more in the hands of William Strickland and Elizabeth Palmes.
William Strickland having bought the estates of Boynton, Hildenley, Newton and Wintringham around 1549, became MP for Scarborough in 1558, the first of several generations of Strickland to hold parliamentary office. His grandson William Strickland, first baronet, was a prominent member of the Long Parliament and supporter of Cromwell. William, third baronet, was MP for Malton from 1689-1708 then MP for Yorkshire, Old Sarum until returning to his seat in Malton 1722-24. He died from a fall whilst fox hunting in 1724. His son, also William, fourth baronet was MP for Malton 1708-1715, then for Carlisle 1715-1722 and finally for Scarborough, 1722-1735. He was variously Lord Treasurer, Treasurer to the Household of the Queen and Secretary at War and it was he who commissioned both Lord Burlington and William Kent to carry out works to Boynton Hall.
The parish church of St Andrew's is Grade 1 Listed. It includes memorials to the Strickland, later Cholmley, later Strickland-Constable Baronets, of Boynton (1641), whose seat was at Boynton Hall, which is also Grade I listed.
