"ELTISLEY, a parish in the hundred of Longstow, county Cambridge, 2 miles north-west of Caxton, its post town, and 5 east of St. Neot's, the nearest railway station. Previous to the Norman Conquest there was a nunnery here, with which is connected a traditionary account of a Scottish princess, Pandiania, taking refuge and being buried within its precincts. The village is situated on the road from Cambridge to Oxford. The living is a vicarage* in the diocese of Ely, value £51. The Wesleyans and Primitive Methodists have each a place of worship. Near the church on the south side was a famous well, still called St. Pandiania's Well, but now filled up with rubbish."
