"MILSON, a parish in the hundred of Overs, county Salop, 3 miles S.W. of Cleobury-Mortimer, its post town, and 9 S.E. of Ludlow. The village, which is small and straggling, is situated near the river Teane, and is watered by the small stream Millbrook. The inhabitants are chiefly engaged in agriculture. The soil consists of clay with a subsoil of gravel. The land is partly in hop-grounds. The living is a curacy annexed to the rectory* of Neen-Sollars, in the diocese of Hereford. The church, dedicated to St. George, is a small ancient stone structure, with a square turreted tower containing three bells. The children of this parish frequent the National school at Neen-Sollars. Colonel Rushout is lord of the manor."[Transcribed from The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland 1868 by Colin Hinson ©2015]
