A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Ugglebarnby from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"UGGLEBARNBY, a township-chapelry in Whitby parish, [North Riding of] Yorkshire; 1½ mile S of Sleights [railway] station, and 3½ SSW of Whitby. Post town, Whitby. Acres: 2,217. Real property: £2,606; of which £50 are in quarries. Population: 437. Houses: 92. The manor belonged to Whitby abbey, and passed to the Archbishop of York. The living is annexed to Eskdaleside. Charities, £12."

Sleights was the village in the neighbouring township of Eskdaleside. Both townships were part of Whitby ecclesiastical parish. In 1885 the two townships became the civil parish of Eskdaleside cum Ugglebarnby.
