Kirklington (Kirtlington)

"Kirklington is a rural village and parish, on the north side of the little River Greet, in the liberty of Southwell and Scrooby, three miles north-west by north of Southwell. It comprises 276 inhabitants and 2,146 acres of land, consisting chiefly of a strong, clayey soil, with a portion of sand near the forest, and is of the rateable value of £2,020. Major-General John Whetham is lord of the manor, and owner of all the land, except Belle Eau Park, 1½ miles north-west of the village, containing 327 acres, which belongs to Earl Manvers. This ancient farm house in the park was formerly surrounded by a double moat, the remains of which are still visible.
Kirklington Hall, the beautiful seat of Major-General John Whetham, is situated a little north of the village, on the western declivity of a gentle eminence. It is delightfully embosomed in woods and thriving plantations, and bounded in the distance by fine eminences, which succeed each other in pleasing order."
[White's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]

Caution: There is another Kirklington parish in the West Riding, Yorkshire.
