"LYONSHALL, a parish in the hundred of STRETFORD, county of HEREFORD, 2 miles (E. S. E.) from Kington, containing 896 inhabitants. The living is a discharged vicarage, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Hereford, rated in the king's books at £6. 10. 7., and in the patronage of the Bishop of Hereford. The church is dedicated to St. Michael. Here are the remains of a moated castle, which, in the early part of the reign of Henry III., belonged to Sir Stephen de Ebroicis, then lord of the manor and castle, on the site of which a curious antique ring was found. A railway passes through this village, in its course from Brecon, to the limekilns in the parish of Old Radnor. A court leet is held here. The parish is bounded on the north by the river Avon."
