Church of St James, Braithwell
Braithwell is a village and parish in the West Riding of Yorkshire. It is about a mile north of Maltby and three miles south-east of Conisbrough. According to the 2001 Census the civil parish had a population of 1,056, increasing slightly to 1,071 at the 2011 Census.
In 1289, the village obtained a Royal Charter entitling it to hold a weekly Tuesday market and an annual eight-day fair - an unusually long duration. These were long discontinued by a survey of 1652, but a cross shaft survives with an inscription in Norman French which translates as "Jesus, son of Mary, think upon the brother of our king, I beseech you".
