Honeybourne, Cow

HONEYBOURNE, COW, a parish, in the union of Evesham, Upper division of the hundred of Kiftsgate, E. division of the county of Gloucester, 5 miles (E.) from Evesham; containing 327 inhabitants. The living was annexed to the vicarage of Church-Honeybourne at the Dissolution: the tithes were commuted for land and money payments in 1778. The church has been from a remote period converted into cottages for the poor, but the tower is still entire, as well as the chancel windows, and one or two windows in the nave. The Wesleyans have a place of worship; and a school is endowed with £30 per annum.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 7th edition, published in 1848.
