The living is a discharged vicarage, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Hereford, rated in the king's books at £3. 15. 5., and in the patronage of Joseph Price, Esq. A college was founded here early in the sixth century, by St.Dubricius, Archbishop of Caerleon, and King of Ergin, of which some assert that it contained one hundred students, while others state the number at one thousand. Extensive foundations of buildings may be traced on an eminence rising from the western bank of the Wye." [From Samuel Lewis A Topographical Dictionary of England  (1831) ©Mel Lockie]
