In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Boyton like this:
BOYTON, a parish in Warminster district, Wilts; on the river Willy, adjacent to the Great Western railway, 1½ mile N W of Codford station, and 2 ½ SE of Heytesbury. It includes Corton township; and its Post Town is Upton-Lovel, under Bath. Acres, 3,956. Real property, £3,338. ...
Pop., 410. Houses, 91. The property is divided among a few. The manor belonged, in the time of Henry II., to the Giffords; and passed to the Lamberts. The mansion on it was built, in 1618, by Thomas Lambert; was occupied, in the present century, by Bourke Lambert, who collected here upwards of 30,000 species of plants; and is now the seat of the Rev. Arthur Fane. A pit in the neighbourhood of the grounds, called Chapel Hole, is popularly believed to have swallowed up a church. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Salisbury. Value, £549.* Patron, Magdalen College, Oxford. The church dates from the latter part of the 12th century; was restored in 1860, at a cost of upwards of £2,000; and contains grand monuments of the Giffords, and several new memorial windows.
