Worcestershire Delineated C. and J. Greenwood 1822

Shipston-upon-Stour – a market town, in the hundred of Oswaldslow, upper division, detached from the county, having Gloucestershire on one side, and Warwickshire on the other; containing 314 inhabited houses. Its name is descriptive of its situation upon the river, and its having been one of the largest sheep markets in the kingdom. Here was formerly a large manufacture of shags, carried on by a Mr. Harte, who left a considerable property to his nephew, on condition that he should continue to carry on the concern for the benefit of the place, but which he soon declined. The living is a rectory, with Tidmington annexed; Rev. John Jones, D.D. incumbent; instituted 1795; patron, Dean and Chapter of Worcester, one turn, and Jesus College, Oxford, two turns. Population, 1801, 1293 – 1811, 1377 – 1821, 1562.

Laird Description of Worcestershire 1814

Shipston-upon-Stour, whose name is descriptive of its situation upon that river, is in the parish of Tredington, lying quite detached from the body of the county, and occupying an extent of nine miles in length, and nearly two in breadth, along with Tidmerton, Aldermaston, &c.

This town is situated in a very improved district, consisting in general of small fields and small farms, well cultivated; even the pastures are enclosed by neat hedge-rows; and the whole shew that considerable attention is paid to agriculture. Yet the town cannot boast much of its appearance, having a great number of small poor looking houses, with streets badly paved; whilst the stone walls, and the thatch in some places, give it a cold bleak appearance. Tredington is the mother church; of course this is but a chapel or chantry. The town formerly belonged to the priory of Worcester, and is now the property of the Dean and Chapter.

Several attempts have been made to establish manufactures, but without any permanent success. A Mr. Harte once carried on a considerable work in the manufacture of Shaggs, and is said to have realized a fortune of 20,000l; three-fourths of which he bequeathed to a nephew, an condition of his carrying on the trade for the benefit of the place, on which principle he himself is said to have done it for several years: but the nephew soon found out some more profitable mode of disposing of the money.

The Market is on Friday: and here are two annual Fairs; one on the 22d of June; the other on the first Tuesday after the 10th of October; and both for horses, cows, and sheep.

Marriages at Shipston-on-Stour 1572 to 1812

Note. – The entries are contained in two volumes; the older, of unwieldy dimensions, is of parchment, and has from time to time been added to and rebound as occasion demanded, it measures 17 by 7 inches and contains 153 pages. The entries of Baptisms and Burials extend from 1572-1797, while Marriages reach from 1572-1754. The handwriting is in some instances equal to good mediaeval work, and almost all is neat and legible. Some of the Burial entries are curious enough to deserve mention, thus :-

“Georgius Rudge seipsa bombarada fellonica interfecit, 14 Jan. 1674.”
“Elizabeth Thornel, widow, was buried at ye upper end of the highway leading from Custard Land through ye plow of ground Commonly called Horsefair for having hanged herself ye day before, she was blind and 86 years of age, June 25, 1695.”
“March 15, 1695. John Wareing for his honest living I cannot but mention among the Christian dead who was by his relations put in the ground like a dog in ye Quakers Meeting House Yard.”

These extracts have been made by the Rev. J. M. Bloom, and are printed with the consent of the Rector, the Rev. D. Lloyd, after collation with the originals.

Shipston upon Stour, Brails & Neighbourhoods Pigot and Co’s National Commercial Directory 1835

Shipston upon Stour is a market town, in the parish of its name, forming, with the parishes of Tidmington and Tredington, a detached portion of the upper division of the hundred of Oswaldslow, county of Worcester; the town of Shipston being locally situate in the hundred of Kington, county of Warwick; 83 miles N. W. by W. from London, 33 S. S. E. from Birmingham, 29 S. by E. from Worcester, 16 S. by W. from Warwick, and 6 N. by E. from Moreton-in-the-Marsh, in Gloucestershire. As its name implies, it is seated on the river Stour, within two miles of the railway from Stralford upon Avon to Moreton; and its prefix is derived from having been formerly one of the largest markets for sheep in the kingdom; but, at the present period, it is a place of little trade. The dean and chapter of Worcester, who possess the manorial rights, hold a court-leet annually, at which a constable is chosen. Shipston is appointed, under the new Boundary Act (an appendage to the Reform Bill), one of the polling stations, at the election of members to represent, in parliament, the eastern division of the county of Worcester.
The places of worship are, the parish church, dedicated to St. Edmund, and chapels for baptists, Wesleyan methodists, and the society of friends. The living of Shipston is a rectory, with the perpetual curacy of Tidmington annexed, in the patronage of the dean and chapter of Worcester, and of the principal and fellows of Jesus’ College, Oxford; the former presenting to every third vacancy: the Rev. William Evans is the present incumbent. Endowments for the instruction of children were bequeathed by John Pittway in 1706, and by George Marshall in 1747; and there are various small bequests for the poor of the town. The country around Shipston is fertile, rather hilly, and presenting, at several points, some pleasing and extensive views. The market is held on Saturday; and the fairs on the third Tuesday in April, the 22nd of June, the last Tuesday in August, and the first Tuesday after the 10th of October. The parish contained, by the census for 1821, 1,562 inhabiiants, and by that for 1831, 1,632; being an increase, in thirty years, of 339 persons.
Brails is a parish, in the division of its name, of the hundred of Kington, county of Warwick: the village, which is four miles E. by S. from Shipston, is very pleasantly situate, being surrounded by a country abouuding with pasture aud other land, highly cultivated. A manufactory for shag, belonging to Messrs. Gilletts’, is the only establishment, in a commercial point of view, worth mentioning. The church, which is dedicated to St. George, is a stone structure, with a tower, containing a peal of six bells. The living is vicarage, in the patronage of J. Bailey, Esq.: the present incumbent is the Rev. Cornwall Smalley, and his curate the Rev. George Cromwell. The charities consist of a free school, endowed in the 23rd year of Elizabeth, for boys; a charity school for girls, and one for infants. The parish contained, in 1821, 1,233 inhabitants, and in 1831, 1,272.
