Marston

MARSTON, a hamlet, in the parish of Wolstan, union of Rugby, Rugby division of the hundred of Knightlow, N. division of the county of Warwick, 6 miles (E. by S.) from Coventry; containing 486 inhabitants. This place, anciently called Breton's Mannour, was held by Guido Breton in the reign of Henry IV.; the manor has since gone with that of Wolstan. The hamlet is situated near the river Avon, where the soil is naturally marshy; and derives its name from that circumstance. It is separated from Wolstan village by a small stream.

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