Great Casterton  Rutland


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

CASTERTON (Great), or Bridge-Casterton, a parish in the district of Stamford and county of Rutland; on Ermine street and the river Gwash, near the Leicester and Peterborough railway, 2½ miles NW of Stamford. It has a post office, of the name of Great Casterton, under Stamford. Acres, 1,590. ...

Real property, £2,021. Pop., 323. Houses, 76. The property is divided among a few. The manor belonged formerly to the Husseys, the Scroops, the Delawarrs, and others; and belongs now to the Marquis of Exeter. A Roman station, burnt by the Picts, is thought by some to have been here. The living is a rectory, united with the rectory of Pickworth, in the diocese of Peterborough. Value, £450. Patron, the Marquis of Exeter. The church was later English, but has been rebuilt. National schools were erected in 1861.
