"PEMBRIDGE, a parish and borough (formerly a market-town), in the hundred of STRETFORD, county of HEREFORD, 15 miles (N.W. by N.) from Hereford, containing 1203 inhabitants. The living is a rectory, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Hereford, rated in the king's books at £36.10. 2., and in the patronage of the President and Fellows of Corpus Christi College, Oxford. The church, dedicated to St. Peter, is a large and lofty structure, with a detached steeple of singular construction, its wooden frame-work being particularly curious. The Wesleyan Methodists have places of worship here; and there is also a chapel belonging to the Home Missionary Society. The river Arrow passes through the town, which is governed by a high bailiff, chosen every two years by a majority of the householders. Courts leet and baron are held annually; and there are fairs, on May 13th for hiring servants, &c., and November 22nd. for the sale of cattle; but the market, granted by Henry I., has long since declined. A free school, endowed by William Carpenter in 1650, is at present conducted on Dr. Bell's system. Here are almshouses, erected and endowed, in 1661, by Jeffry and Bishop Duppa, for six poor persons, each to receive £5 per annum." [From Samuel Lewis A Topographical Dictionary of England  (1831) ©Mel Lockie]
