Ston Easton

"STON EASTON, a parish in the hundred of Chewton, county Somerset, 14 miles S.W. of Bath, its post town, and 7 N. of Shepton Mallet. The village is situated on the high road from Bristol to Wells. The soil is of a loamy nature, with a subsoil of limestone. A large portion of the land is devoted to pasture. The living is a curacy annexed to the vicarage of Chewton Mendip, in the diocese of Bath and Wells. The church is an ancient edifice with a tower and five bells; the interior contains some marble tablets of the Hippesley family. The register dates from 1572. The parochial charities produce about £4 per annum. There is a parochial school for both sexes, entirely supported by J. Hippesley, Esq., who is lord of the manor. Stone Easton House is the principal residence." From The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) Transcribed by Colin Hinson © 2003
