"Gedling Parish comprises the three townships of Gedling, Carlton and Stoke Bardolph, with a population of 2,922 souls and 4,490 acres of land.
Gedling is a small village with 402 inhabitants, situated 4 miles east-north-east of Nottingham, in a picturesque valley which opens into the vale of the Trent. It contains 1,626 acres of strong clay land. The Earl of Chesterfield is lord of the manor and patron of the rectory, and owns 785 acres. Earl Manvers owns 693 acres, and William Stamford Burnside Esq. also has an estate here. The latter resides at Gedling House, a beautiful modern mansion on a steep declivity overlooking the Trent.

The rectory, before the dissolution of the abbeys, belonged to the monastery of Shelford, and also had a vicarage to which they presented. The rectory is valued in the King's books at £14 6s, and the vicarage at £6 16s 8d, now worth £1,075. It received at the enclosure in 1793 three large allotments of land in lieu of tithes. The Rev. Charles Williams is the incumbent. The church, dedicated to All Saints, has a nave and side aisles, is neatly pewed and has an organ, erected in 1808. It has a handsome lofty spire and four bells. In the body of the church are several handsome marble tablets, one of which remembers the late William E. Elliott Esq., who died in January 1844. His kindness and benevolence knew no bounds, and the poor of the surrounding parishes have lost a tried friend."
[WHITE's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]
