ARGAM (EXTRA-PAROCHIAL). Wapentake and Petty Sessional Division of Dickering - County Council Electoral Division of Hunmanby - Poor Law Union, County Court District, and Rural Deanery of Bridlington - Archdeaconry of the East Riding - Diocese of York.

Argam, or Ergham, is a small parish lying between Hunmanby and Rudston, with Grindall on the east, and Burton Fleming on the west. Its entire area is 559 acres, rateable value £567, and population 40. The whole parish is comprised in three farms. The soil is sand, gravel, and wold chalk, the subsoil chalk and gravel, and the chief crops are wheat, barley, oats, and turnips. Colonel Yarburgh G. Lloyd-Greame, Mr. Richard Holtby, of Nafferton, and Mr. David Holtby, of Grindall are the principal landowners.

Argam is an extra-parochial place. The church, which was dedicated to St. John the Baptist, was taken down long ago, and no institution is recorded subsequent to 1605. The living is a vicarage, now united to Sewerby-with-Marton and-Grindall, and the inhabitants attend the church at the last-named place.

Extending longitudinally through the parish are some earthworks, known a Ergham Dykes. They have been very generally attributed to the Romans, but were more probably the work of the ancient Britons. In 1869 some Roman coins which had long lain hid, were brought to light in a very curious way. They were found in a mole-hill which the little miner had thrown up, and were in very good preservation.
