COLLINGBOURN-DUCIS (St. Andrew), a parish, in the union of Pewsey, hundred of Elstub and Everley, Everley and Pewsey, and S. divisions of Wilts, 9 miles (S. E.) from Pewsey; containing 518 inhabitants.

This place was formerly part of the duchy of Lancaster, from which it acquired the adjunct to its name; Henry VIII. alienated it to the Earl of Hertford, afterwards Duke of Somerset, and Protector of England, upon whose attainder it reverted to the crown, and was granted by Queen Elizabeth to Edward, Earl of Hertford.

The parish is on the road between Andover and Marlborough, and comprises by measurement 3241 acres, the soil of which is generally of a light clayey nature; the surface is varied, rising in several parts into hills of considerable elevation, and the village, situated on a plain, is watered by a small rivulet.

The living is a rectory, valued in the king’s books at £16. 6. 8., and in the gift of the Marquess of Ailesbury: the tithes have been commuted for £626, and the glebe contains about 58 acres, with a glebe-house.
