"NYLAND, a parish in the hundred of Glaston-Twelve-Hides, county Somerset, 3 miles S.E. of Axbridge, and 6 N.W. of Wells. The parish, which is inconsiderable, includes the hamlet of Batcombe. It had a church, dedicated to St. Andrew, which King Kenewalch gave to Glastonbury Abbey in 670. It is now considered to belong to Glastonbury parish."
