A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Headon cum Upton from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"HEADON, a village and a parish in East Retford [registration] district, Notts. The village stands 3 miles N of Tuxford [railway] station, and 4 SE of East Retford. The parish contains also the hamlets of Upton and Thorpe; and bears the name of Headon-with-Upton. Post town, Tuxford, under Newark. Acres: 2,300. Real property: £2,841. Population: 282. Houses: 55. The property is divided among a few. The manor belongs to G. H. Vernon, Esq. Headon Park was a seat of the Eyres. The living is two-fold, a vicarage and a sinecure rectory, in the diocese of Lincoln. Value of the vicarage: £220; of the rectory: £178. Patron of both: G. H. Vernon, Esq. The church is old, but good, and has a tower. There is a Methodist chapel."

Wikipedia does not provide an article for Headon cum Upton, or for Headon, although there is a article for St. Peter's Church in Headon. However, Wikipedia does have a very short article for the hamlet of Upton.

NOTE:A second Upton is a civil parish in the Newark and Sherwood District in the southern part of the county.
