"ALLER, a parish in the hundred of Somerton, in the county of Somerset, 2 miles N.W. of Langport. It lies near the river Parrot. It was at Oath; in this parish, that Guthrum the Dane and his followers were baptized, after having been defeated by Alfred at Ethandune. In 1645, a skirmish took place at Aller Moor, between the forces of the king and the parliament. The living is a rectory* in the diocese of Bath and Wells, value £623, in the patronage of the Master and Fellows of Emanuel College, Cambridge. The church is dedicated to St. Andrew. It is an ancient edifice, and contains a Saxon arch and a monument of a Botreaux. Ralph Cudworth, the meta-physician, author of "The Intellectual System of the Universe," was born here in 1617, at which time the rectory was held by his father."
