It includes the tything of North Burcombe, and is itself sometimes called South Burcombe; and its Post Town is Wilton, under Salisbury. Acres, 1,450. Rated property, £1,857. Pop., 374. Houses, 85. The property is divided among a few. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Salisbury. Value, £52.* Patron, St. John's Hospital, Wilton.
