In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Liddington like this:
LIDDINGTON, a village and a parish in Uppingham district, Rutland. The village stands 2 miles S by E of Uppingham, and 2½ W by S of Seaton r. station; is very ancient; was formerly a market-town, and of much larger size than now; and has a post office under Uppingham. The parish comprises 2,020 acres. ...

A palace of the bishops of Lincoln stood here; was converted, in 1602, into an hospital for a warden, 12 men and 2 women, with endowment now yielding £116 a year; and the hall of it still stands, shows features of ancient splendour, and retains its old painted glass windows. The living is a rectory, united with the vicarage of Caldicott, in the diocese of Peterborough. Value, £420. * Patron, the Bishop of Peterborough. The church is ancient; consists of nave, aisles, and chancel, with tower and short spire; and contains an ancient screen and some well-preserved brasses.
