"CLIFFORD, a parish in the hundred of HUNTINGTON, county of HEREFORD, 9 miles (S.W. by S.) from Kington, containing, with a part of the township of Vowmine, 816 inhabitants. The living is a discharged vicarage, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Hereford, rated in the king's books at £4.10., endowed with £200 private benefaction, and £200 royal bounty, and in the patronage of the Rev. W. Trumper. The church is dedicated to St. Mary. There are some portions of Clifford castle remaining, in a ruinous condition: it stood on a bold eminence, projecting over the river Wye, and was the baronial residence of the lords de Clifford for two centuries, being, as it is supposed, the birthplace of Fair Rosamond. Here was anciently a convent of Cluniac monks, founded by one of the lords de Clifford, as a cell to the priory of Lewes, in Sussex; at the dissolution, its revenue was estimated at £75. 7. 5."
