"MONKLAND, a parish in the hundred of STRETFORD, county of HEREFORD, 2 miles (W. S. W.) from Leominster, containing 187 inhabitants. The living is a discharged vicarage, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Hereford, rated in the king's books at £11. 0. 9., and in the patronage of the Dean and Canons of Windsor. The church, dedicated to All Saints, with the manor, was, in the time of William Rufus, given by Ralph Tony to the abbey of Conches in Normandy, upon which a cell of Benedictine monks was established here, the possessions of which, at the suppression, were granted to the Dean and Canons of Windsor. Courts leet are occasionally held here." [From Samuel Lewis A Topographical Dictionary of England  (1831) ©Mel Lockie]
