Kinnersley (St. James)

KINNERSLEY (St. James), a parish, in the union of Weobley, partly in the hundred of Wolphy, but chiefly in that of Stretford, county of Hereford, 4½ miles (W. by S.) from Weobley; containing 281 inhabitants. This place had a castle of some importance before the Conquest, the remains of which have been converted into a residence. The parish comprises by measurement 2400 acres. Facilities of conveyance are afforded by the river Wye, and by the road between Weobley and Hay, which passes through the village. The living is a rectory, valued in the king's books at £13. 8. 4., and in the patronage of Mrs. Clarke: the tithes have been commuted for £415, and the glebe comprises 24 acres. The church is in the early English style.
