NOTE: In common parlance, the Selby District is spoken of as "Selby" or the "Borough of Selby". In order to differentiate Yorkshire local government districts formed in 1974 from other types of districts employed earlier in the county and from smaller places still in existence, here in WeRelate the word "District" has been added to all modern govenment districts outside a metropolitan borough.
