Orchard Portman

"ORCHARD-PORTMAN, a parish in the hundred of Taunton, county Somerset, 2 miles S.E. of Taunton, its post town. The parish, which is of small extent, is situated on the high road from Taunton to Chard. The Blackdown hounds meet in this parish. There is no village, only a few farmhouses. The tithes have been commuted for a rent-charge of £115 168., and the glebe comprises 24 acres. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Bath and Wells. The church, dedicated to St. Michael, is an ancient stone structure with a square tower, containing four bells. The parochial charities produce about £10 per annum. Lord Portman is lord of the manor and sole landowner." From The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) Transcribed by Colin Hinson © 2003
