"Kilvington, 7½ miles south of Newark, is a hamlet and parish comprised in three farms, with only 27 inhabitants, and 480 acres of land, of which 142 were allotted for the tithes at the enclosure in 1750. The duke of Portland is the principal owner and lord of the manor.
The Rev. John Gorden is the incumbent of the rectory, which is valued in the King's books at £6 12s 1d, and was consolidated with the Staunton rectory in 1826, when the church was so dilapidated, and the chancel a roofless ruin, that seat room was provided for the inhabitants in the neighbouring church at Staunton. The church was rebuilt in 1852, on the old site, at the sole expense of the present owner. The farmers are Thomas Allen, grazier, William Marshall and William Wilson."
[WHITE's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]

Note: There is a South Kilvington parish in the North Riding of Yorkshire
