North Collingham

"North Collingham parish includes more than half of the village, and Potter Hill, a lofty tumulus on the borders of Lincolnshire, where many Roman relics have been found, and is very likely to have been a military station. It contains 935 inhabitants and 1,820 acres of land. The church, dedicated to All Saints, stands near the centre of the village. It is a very ancient structure in the Norman style of architecture, and underwent considerable repairs in 1832, when a new pulpit and reading desk were put up. There is a good Sunday School attached. The vicarage is valued in the King's books at £8 14s 2d, now at £92, and has been augmented by Queen Anne's Bounty. The Rev. Charles Lesiter A.B. is the incumbent, and the Dean and Chapter of peterborough are the patrons and appropriators, but they received land at the inclosure in lieu of tithes.
The land belongs to several small owners, but the Earl of Stamford is lord of the manor. The Baptist church here has had several additions, and about eight years ago was enlarged with the addition of the vestry. near it is a school, endowed for the education of the poor children of both parishes, by William and Mary Hart, in 1699, and in 1718 with land now let for £30 per annum."
[White's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]
