Snaith was a peculiar; that is, it had an Ecclesiastical Court of its own, exempt in many matters from the jurisdiction of the Bishop of the Diocese.

The Court had jurisdiction over the townships of Snaith, Balne, Cowick, Gowdall, Heck, Hensall, Pollington, Carlton, Armin, Hook, Rawcliffe, Goole, Swinefleet, Reedness, Whitgift and Ousefleet.

The Priory Church dated from the 11th century, but there was almost certainly a Church here before that time.
