"LILSTOCK, (or Little-stoke), a parish in the hundred of Williton, county Somerset, 12 miles N.W. of Bridgwater, its post town, and 8 N.E. of the Williton railway station. It is a small scattered village situated on the coast of the Bristol Channel, and is wholly agricultural. The parish is bounded on the N. by Bridgwater Bay. Limestone for building is extensively quarried. The tithes were commuted for land under an Act of Enclosure in 1803. The living is a curacy annexed to the vicarage* of Stogursey, in the diocese of Bath and Wells. The church, dedicated to St. Andrew, is a small structure with a square tower containing four bells. Sir P. Acland is lord of the manor and sole landowner." From The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) Transcribed by Colin Hinson © 2003
