"Tollerton is a small, picturesque village and parish, upon a pleasant declivity, 4½ miles wouth by east of Nottingham, containing 157 inhabitants and 1,240 acres of land. It was enclosed many years ago and no allotment was made in lieu of tithes.
In Doomsday Book this manor is called Roclaveston, and afterwards Torlaston, and was of the fees of Roger de Busli and Roger Pietavensis. As early as the reign of Edward II, it was possessed by the Barry family whose heiress, about 1560, called it in marriage to Richard Pendock, from whom was descended the late lord and owner Pendock B. Barry Esq., at whose death it became the property of Mrs Susannah Davis, who resides at "The Hall", which was rebuilt about 30 years ago, in imitation of the gothic, with towers, turrets &c., and with a cloister that communicates with the church. The grounds are very extensive, and beautifully ornamented with shrubs, and contains a fine sheet of water with a woody island. The new gateway, and the lodge near it, together with the bridge, assimilate with the surrounding scenery."
[White's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]
