Hullavington (St. Mary)

HULLAVINGTON (St. Mary), a parish, in the union of Malmesbury, partly in the hundred of Chippenham, but chiefly in that of Malmesbury, Malmesbury and Kingswood, and N. divisions of the county of Wilts, 4¾ miles (S. W. by S.) from Malmesbury; containing, with the tything of Surrendral, 634 inhabitants. This parish, which is situated on the road from Malmesbury to Bristol, comprises according to measurement 3098 acres: common stone, of suitable quality for the rougher kinds of building, is quarried to a small extent. The living is a discharged vicarage, valued in the king's books at £6. 13.; patrons and impropriators, the Provost and Fellows of Eton College. The great tithes have been commuted for £455, and the vicarial for £165; the glebe contains 52 acres. A place of worship has been built for dissenters.
