"MARDEN, a parish in the hundred of BROXASH, county of HEREFORD, 5 miles (N. N. E.) from Hereford, containing, with the chapelry of Amberley, 815 inhabitants. The living is a discharged vicarage, in the peculiar jurisdiction of the Dean of Hereford, rated in the king's books at £ 5. 13. 5., and hi the patronage of the Dean and Chapter of Hereford. The church, dedicated to St. Ethelbert, stands on the banks of the Lugg, over the spot where King Ethelbert was buried, and where a well, which still exists, is superstitiously said to have miraculously sprung up at the time the edifice was dedicated to his memory."
