"Meering, on the east of the Trent, near Girton, 9 miles north of Newark, is an extra parochial farm of 700 acres, of low marshy grazing land, in the occupation of Mr George Catcliffe. It anciently gave name to a resident family of considerable note, who gave part of it to the priories of Lenton and Radford. It now contributes to the repairs of Sutton church. In 1843, two ancient pewter measures were washed up by the Trent, one of which held two quarts, and the other three pints. Human bones and skulls are often also washed up by the Trent. It is said part of the old religious house was used in building Sutton church."
[WHITE's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]
