EATON-CONSTANTINE (St. Mary), a parish, in the union of Atcham, Wellington division of the hundred of South Bradford, N. division of Salop, 5¼ miles (N. N. W.) from Wenlock; containing 294 inhabitants. It is bounded on the south-west by the Severn, and comprises 835a. 3r. 39p.; the surface rises gradually from the river towards the north, and the soil in the lower part is rich and fertile, but in the higher grounds of inferior quality. Coal is wrought to a small extent; and rough stone quarried for buildings and fences. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the gift of the Duke of Cleveland: the rectorial tithes have been commuted for £128; the glebe comprises 35 acres. There is also a rent-charge of £48. 6. belonging to the vicar of Layton. The church is a neat structure in good repair.
