Allington  Lincolnshire


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

ALLINGTON (East and West), two parishes in the district of Newark and county of Lincoln; 2¼ miles N of Sedgebrook r. station, and 4 NW of Grantham. They have a post office, of the name of Allington, under Grantham. Acres in both, 2,070. Real property, £3,535. Pop. of E. A., 275. Houses, 64. ...

Pop. of W. A., 135. Houses, 27. The property is not much divided. Allington House is an edifice in the Tudor style. The livings are in the diocese of Lincoln; and that of E. A. is a curacy annexed to the rectory of Sedgebrook; while that of W. A. is a rectory, of the value of £262, in the patronage of the Lord Chancellor. The church is very good; and there are charities £17.
