In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Great Kimble like this:

KIMBLE (GREAT), a parish in Wycombe district, Bucks; on Icknield street, 2¾ miles NE of Princes-Risborough r. station, and 3¼ SW by W of Wendover. It includes the hamlets of Kimble-Wick and Marsh; and has a letter box under Tring. Acres, 2, 473. Real property, £3, 244. Pop. ...


in 1851, 501; in 1861, 408. Houses, 93. The property is divided among a few. The parish was anciently called Kunebel; is said to have got that name from Cunobelin or Cymbeline, the British king, whose sons made a brave stand here against the Romans; and contains eminences, called Belinus' castle, and Belinesbury, where Cunobelin is supposed to have had fortalices or residences. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Oxford. Value, £220. * Patron, G. H.Hampden, Esq. The church is early English, in very bad condition; comprises nave, aisles, and chancel; and contains a Norman font. There are a national school, and charities £8.
