"HINTON ST. GEORGE, a parish in the hundred of Crewkerne, county Somerset, 3 miles N.W. of Crewkerne, and 4 from Ilminster, its post town. It anciently belonged to the Powtnels and Denebands, from whom it came to the Pouletts. From the higher lands is a view of both channels. The village, which is considerable, is chiefly agricultural. Hinton Park is the seat of Earl Poulett, who takes hence the title of viscount. The living is a rectory* in the diocese of Bath and Wells, value £197. The church, dedicated to St. George, is a fine structure, containing several interesting monuments of the Poulett family.
