Holme Pierre Pont

"Holme Pierrepont Parish comprises the hamlets of Adbolton, Bassingfield, Holme, Pierrepont and Lamcote, with part of Gamston township, which is mostly in West Bridgford parish. It contains 174 inhabitants and 2,135 acres of land, stretching southward from the Trent to the Nottingham and Grantham Canal. The low grounds near river have a rich alluvial soil, and the higher parts have a good sandy clay. The whole has long been possessed by the Pierrepont family, from which it has the latter part of its name, and is now the property of Earl Manvers, who inherits the estates of the late Duke of Kingston, whose ancestor Henry Pierrepont obtained this parish in the reign of Edward I, by marrying the heiress of the Manvers family (hence the title of Earl Manvers).
Holme Pierrepont Village occupies a picturesque situation on the south side of the River Trent, 5 miles east by south of Nottingham. Most of the farm houses here, and in other parts of the parish, are handsomely built, and the cottages have small gardens attached to them."
[White's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]
