Parish History

The Imperial Gazetteer of England & Wales 1870

LAVINGTON (EAST), a small town and a parish in Devizes district, Wilts. The town stands in a fertile valley, near the Ridge way, and on the N border of Salisbury plain, 5½ miles S of Devizes r. station; is irregularly built; consists chiefly of two streets; is commonly called Market-Lavington; and has a post-office of that name under Devizes.

A workmen’s hall was erected in 1864. A weekly market was formerly held, but has been discontinued; and malting is carried on.

The parish contains also the tything of Easterton. Acres, 4,721. Real property, £7,574. Pop. in 1851. 1,721; in 1861, 1,583. Houses, 381. The decrease of pop. was caused by the removal of machinery works and of a foundry.

The manor belonged once to the Plantagenets; and passed to the Beauchamps, the Montagues, and the Bouveries. A mansion, on a picturesque site, about ½ a mile W of the town, was built in 1866 by the Right Hon. E. P. Bouverie.

The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Salisbury. Value, £300. Patron, Christ Church, Oxford. The church stands on an eminence W of the town; is later English, with a steeple; and was restored in 1862.

There are chapels for Independents and Baptists, two national schools, and charities £20.

Bishop Tanner, author of “Notitia Monastica,“ was a native.
