Loftus History

Loftus (see link below for picture)

Lcotvsv, in the Doomsday book, from Laghthus meaning low houses.
Is a place of great antiquity and from the name of the adjacent hamlet Street Houses was evidently known to the Romans.

The fee of the extensive Baronial Liberty of Langbaurgh (Long Hill) Wapentake was sold by King John in 1207 to Peter de Bruce, Lord of Skelton for 400 marks.

Langbaurgh takes its name from a portion of the ridge of the great Whinstone Dyke forming the north eastern division of the North Riding, 40 miles long and 18 miles wide.
This is taken from a book written in 1859.
This also states that the Lofthouse and Boulby Alum works commenced in 1615, and in the cliffs were found antedeluvian remains such as the enormous Ichthyosaurus.

Loftus of 2006 has seen many changes.
