Wysall (Wissawe)

"This is an indifferently-built village, upon the Wolds, 9½ miles south by east of Nottingham. Its parish contains 270 inhabitants and 1,360 acres of land, principally belonging to S.B. Wild Esq., Mrs Anthony, the three co-heiresses of the late Jas. Kearsley Esq, the Messrs Starling, Roscoe and Decollier. It was enclosed in 1800, when 311 acres were awarded to the impropriator and 91 acres to the vicar in lieu of tithes. Lord Rancliffe's heirs are lords of the manor.
The church is dedicated to the Holy Trinity, and has some ancient monuments of the Armstrong family, and former vicars of this parish. The vicarage has been augmented with Queen Anne's Bounty, and is valued in the King's books at £4 11s 0½d. Sir Robert H. Bromley is the patron, purchased in 1837 of Earl Gosford, and the Rev. Thomas P. Dodson the incumbent. The Wesleyans and Baptists have each a small chapel in this place."
[White's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]
