"Edingley is a pleasant village and parish, three miles west-north-west of Southwell. Its parish comprises 381 inhabitants and 1,692 acres of land, which was enclosed in 1778, when allotments were made in lieu of tithes. It is in the liberty of Southwell and Scrooby. The archbishop is lord of the manor, and the chapter of Southwell are the appropriators and patrons of the perpetual curacy, which is valued in the King's books at £4, now at £80. A great part of the soil is copyhold or leasehold under them, and the rest belongs to a number of freeholders, the principal of whom are Mr Gunton, V.S. Burnell Esq., Mr John Hage, Mr Edward Cope, Mr George Pursey, Mr Samuel Ward, Mr John Alcock and the Rev. J.D. Beecher.
The church is an ancient structure, dedicated to St Giles. The chancl was rebuilt by Henry Machon Esq. of Gatefoed Hill, in 1844, when the church was thoroughly repaired at the expense of the parish. The Rev. James Francis Dimock is the incumbent. The Methodists have a chapel here, erected in 1838. A feast is held on the Sunday after Old St Giles's Day."
[WHITE's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]
