A Topographical Dictionary of England 1848

ETCHILHAMPTON, a chapelry, in the parish of Allcannings, union of Devizes, hundred of Swanborough, Devizes and N. divisions of Wilts, 3 miles (E. S. E.) from Devizes; containing 282 inhabitants, and comprising 917a. 3r. 12p. The village is pleasantly situated at the base of a small hill in the vale of Pewsey: stone of a white colour, very soft, is quarried. The river Avon, which runs by Salisbury into the English Channel, has its source near this place; and a branch of a more important river of the same name (the Bristol Avon) rises close to the former.

The chapel, dedicated to St. Andrew, is in the later English style, and contains some monuments, which, from their antiquity, would induce an opinion that the present edifice is a re-construction of the original building; among these is one having the figures of a knight and his lady, in the costume of the reign of Edward III., with twelve figures erect, well sculptured in freestone, and in good preservation.
