Horne (All Saints)

HORNE (All Saints), a parish, in the union of Oakham, hundred of Alstoe, county of Rutland, 6 miles (N. W. by W.) from Stamford; containing 38 inhabitants. It comprises by computation 856 acres, of which 492 are in Exton Park; of the remainder the far greater part is arable, with a small portion of pasture: the soil is rather of a clayey nature. The living is a rectory, united to the vicarage of Exton, and valued in the king's books at £1. 6. 8.: the tithes have been commuted for £77. The church, of which the site only can be traced, is supposed to have been destroyed in the time of the Commonwealth; the inhabitants attend Exton church.

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