Bentley, South Yorkshire
Bentley is a village in South Yorkshire, England two miles north of the town of Doncaster. Historically within the West Riding of Yorkshire, the village was once owned by Edmund Hastings of Plumtree, Nottinghamshire, who had inherited it from his wife Copley's Sprotborough family. Hastings subsequently sold the manor to John Levett, a York lawyer born at High Melton who married the niece of Hastings's wife, who then conveyed it to Sir Arthur Ingram of York, High Sheriff of Yorkshire.
Bentley is made up of two parts: Bentley West End, which is the part closer to town, and Bentley New Village, the part closer to Toll Bar.
