William Hirst moved to Boroughbridge to start work as an attorney there in 1818. He was recommended to the Duke of Newcastle by Edward Lascelles, Baron Harewood, of Harewood House near Leeds. Hirst had presumably lived in the Harewood area up to this time.
Hirst acted as the steward of the Duke of Newcastle's manors of Aldborough and Boroughbridge, and worked as a general agent for the 4th Duke of Newcastle in relation to his tenants and elections.
