"WYKEN, a parish in the city of Coventry, county Warwick, 3 miles N.E. of Coventry. It is partly in common, and has an extensive colliery worked by Messrs. Harris. The land is chiefly the property of the Earl of Craven, who is lord of the manor, and whose ancestors formerly resided at Wyken House, an old mansion, in the garden of which is the original apple-tree brought by Admiral Craven from Holland, and from which the celebrated "Wyken Pippin" has been propagated. The living is a perpetual curacy annexed to Binley, in the diocese of Worcester."
