A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Toyd Farm with Allenford from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"TOYD-FARM-WITH-ALLENFORD, an extra-parochial tract in the S of Wilts; 8 ½ miles SW of Salisbury. Population: 12. Houses: 2."

Like Martin, Toyd Farm was in Wiltshire until 1895.

The only additional information from the Victoria County History of Hampshire, volume 4 is its acreage of 647 acres. There is no article in Wikipedia.
