"LUCTON, a parish in the hundred of WOLPHY, county of HEREFORD, 6 miles (N. W.) from Leominster, containing 181 inhabitants. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Hereford, endowed with £200 private benefaction, and £600 royal bounty, and in the patronage of the Governors of Lucton school. The church is dedicated to St. Peter. The school was founded, in 1708, by John Pierrepont, Esq., for three masters to teach fifty children, not paupers, of the five adjoining parishes; the endowment consists of land and tithes in Orlton, Yarpole, Luston, Eyton, and Lucton, the annual value of which is now about £800: it is vested in a body corporate, styled "The Governors of Lucton school," viz., the master and preacher of the Charter-house, London, the common Serjeant, the rectors of St. Botolph's Bishopsgate, and St. Peter's Cornhill, the preacher of Gray's Inn, the master of Merchant-Taylors' school, and the president of Sion College. The present number on the establishment is sixty-four, via., fifty sons of poor farmers and labourers, and fourteen of more opulent parents, the latter of whom pay £1.5. per annum each; they are taught the classics, English, writing, &c., and are allowed £10 as an apprentice fee, and £20 at the termination of their apprenticeship."
