"KEMBERTON, a parish in the hundred of Brimstree, county Salop, 22 1 miles S. of Shiffnal, its post town and nearest railway station, and 8 N. of Bridgnorth. The village is a small agricultural place. The soil is good, and the land chiefly arable. Coal is found, but not worked. The living is a rectory* with the vicarage of Sutton Maddock annexed, joint value £570, in the diocese of Lichfield. The church, dedicated to St. John, is a plain brick building with a tower crowned with pinnacles and containing four bells. In the church is a marble tablet erected by the parishioners to the memory of their late rector, the Rev. John Williams. There is a day school for both sexes."[Transcribed from The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland 1868 by Colin Hinson ©2015]
