Kinoulton

"Kinoulton is a large village and parish on the Grantham Canal, under the eastern declivity of the Wolds, 7 miles south-west by south of Bingham, and 10½ miles south-wast of Nottingham. It contains 405 inhabitants and 3,071 acres of land, mostly belonging to the lord of the manor, Henry Nevile Esq., with about 260 acres belonging to Thomas Black, William Day and Henry Martin Esqs. In 1849 there was a rent charge in lieu of the tithes.
The village was anciently called Newbold, and was a chapelry to the mother church, which was dedicated to St Wilfred, and stood on a lofty eminence, more than half a mile west of the village, where it was long in ruins, and was taken down about the year 1793, when the Earl of Gainsborough, then lord of the manor, erected the present church. The manors of Kinoulton and Newbold were of the fees of Walter D'Ayncourt and William Peveril, and were successively held by the Villiers, Foljambes, Plumptons, Cliftons, Bugges and Noels, from the latter of whom they passed to the late lord, C.H. Nevile Esq., who assumed the name of Noel, on succeeding to the estates of Henry Noel, the last Earl of Gainsborough, who died without issue in 1796."
[White's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]
