Does anybody know the source of the name Helredale? It seems to have appeared from nowhere in 1894 for the new Parish at the east of Whitby annexed from Hawsker when the Urban District Council was formed and District Councils had to be formed from a whole number of parishes.

I can't find any reference to Helredale in any documentation or maps before 1894, and can't find any reference to any underlying meaning.
