Lawford, Long

LAWFORD, LONG, a hamlet, in the parish of Newbold-upon-Avon, union of Rugby, Rugby division of the hundred of Knightlow, N. division of the county of Warwick, 2½ miles (W. N. W.) from Rugby; containing 625 inhabitants. The prefix "Long" was given to this place to distinguish it from Church-Lawford, and was suggested, doubtless, by the straggling form of the village. The hamlet comprises 1578 acres, and is intersected by the London and Birmingham railway, which here approaches close to the river Avon.

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