"Weston Parish consists of the two hamlets of North and South Weston, three miles south-east of Tuxford, situated on the opposite declivities of a narrow vale, where the waters from the Laxton and Egmanton unite, and roll in one steam to the Trent. The Great North Road passes to the south, and The Great Northern Railway to the north of the parish. It contains 487 inhabitants and 1,650 acres of land. Earl Manvers owns about one half of the parish, and is lord of the manor. He holds a court at Michaelmas, and is patron of the rectory. Mr Francis Skinner is an owner, and most of the farmers are owners in part.
The church, dedicated to All Saints, is situated at South Weston. It is a neat structure, with a spire and three bells. It was repaired in 1840, repewed, and had the chancel rebuilt, at a cost of about £150. The rector rebuilt the chancel and porch and, since then, a further sum of £100 has been laid out in alterations and improvements, the parish in both cases having materially assisted the subscriptions of Earl Manvers and Viscount Newark. The rectory is valued in the King's books at £19 2s 11d, now £468. The Rev. T.T. Penrose M.A. is the incumbent, and the Rev. John Proctor M.A. is the curate. The parish was enclosed in 1795, when 315 acres were allotted to the rector in lieu of tithe."
[White's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]
