"RAMSEY, a parish, post, and market town in the hundred of Hurstingstone, county Huntingdon, 10 miles north-east of Huntingdon, and 69 north-west of London. It is the terminus of the Holme and Ramsey branch of the Great Northern railway. The parish, which is extensive, is watered by Bill-Load, a branch of the river Nen, near Ramsey Mere. At Ram's Eye, in this parish, there formerly stood a mitred Benedictine abbey of great wealth and magnificence, founded about 967 by Alderman Ailwine, Duke of the East Angles, and dedicated to SS. Mary and Benedict." (There is more of this description).
