"BILTON, a parish in the Rugby division of the hundred of Knightlow, in the county of Warwick, 1 mile from Rugby, its post town. The London and North-Western railway passes near it. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Worcester, of the value of £678, in the patronage of the Rev. J. T. Parker, rector. The church, dedicated to St. Mark, is chiefly in the Norman style, with a tower and spire of more recent erection. There is a small endowed school, with a revenue of about £20 a year. The principal residences are Bilton Hall, Bilton House, and Bilton Grange. Bilton House is interesting as having once been the seat of Joseph Addison, the moralist; and afterwards the residence of his daughter, till her death in 1797. It still contains some of the furniture and pictures which belonged to him."
