Historic Descriptions

1822 - Somersetshire delineated by Christopher & John Greenwood

A parish in the hundred of Frome, 2 miles E. from Frome; containing 34 inhabited houses, and 50 families, 30 of whom are employed in agriculture. The land, which comprises about 1000 acres, is principally applied to meadow and pasture; a number of streams run through the parish, one of which, called Rodden Trout-Stream, turns several mills in its course to the river Frome. The chapel was built at the expense of the inhabitants, about the year 164O, by the rector of Boynton, in Wilts, pursuant to an order obtained from the Archbishop of Canterbury, to which the said rector annexed the chancel. The presentation is in the rector of Boynton for the time being; Rev. J. M. Rogers, incumbent. Population, 1801, 200 — 1811, no return — 1821, 272.
