Edmund Cooper, in Muker: The Story of a Yorkshire Parish, includes a quote from Sir Stephen Glynne, Bart., giving his view, in 1869, that 'This church is but mean and ugly, though well placed, and is only interesting as having been built in 1580, as a specimen of church building at a period when few were erected'. The church was extensively 'restored' in 1890.

The Society of Genealogists has copies of the parish registers from 1638-1670 and 1700-1842.
