Edington

EDINGTON, a chapelry, in the parish of Moorlinch, union of Bridgwater, hundred of Whitley, W. division of Somerset, 6½ miles (E. N. E.) from Bridgwater; containing 428 inhabitants. The great tithes have been commuted for £90; and the vicarial for £110, with a glebe of nearly 25½ acres. The living is a perpetual curacy, annexed to that of Chilton-upon-Poldon: the chapel, dedicated to St. George, has been enlarged. Here is a medicinal spring, impregnated with sulphur and iron, and said to be efficacious in scorbutic disorders. A tessellated pavement and other Roman antiquities have been discovered.
