Faxton  Northamptonshire


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

FAXTON, a chapelry in Lamport parish, Northampton; 2 miles E of Lamport r. station, and 4½ SSW of Rothwell. Post town, Lamport, under Northampton, Acres, with Mawsley, 2, 120. Pop., exclusive of Mawsley, 79; inclusive, 90. Houses, exc., 17; inc., 19. It was returned as a parish in 1831, and previous decades; as a chapelry belonging to Lamport, in 1841; as a chapelry or parish, inclusive of Mawsley, in 1851; and as a parish, exclusive of Mawsley, in 1861. It appears ecclesiastically not to have any status, but to be considered as part of Lamport.
