ARLESCOTE, a township, in the parish of Warmington, union of Banbury, Burton-Dasset division of the hundred of Kington, S. division of the county of Warwick, 5½ miles (E. S. E.) from Kington; containing 43 inhabitants. This place was given soon after the Conquest to the Earl of Mellent, who bestowed a portion of it on the monks of Preaux. The manor, after the Dissolution, passed from the crown to the Andrews family.
