An appeal for information.
Back in 1870-72, John Marius Wilson’s “Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales” described Leinthall Starkes like this:
LEINTHALL-STARKES, a parish, with a village, in the district of Ludlow and county of Hereford; 5 miles WNW of Woofferton-Junction r. station, and 6 SW by W of Ludlow. Post town, Wigmore, under Kingsland, Herefordshire. Acres, 990. Real property, with Leinthall-Earls, and Elton, £3,791. Rated property of L.S. alone, £1,017. Pop., 144. Houses, 29. The property is all in one estate. The living is a p. curacy in the diocese of Hereford. Value, £53. Patron, A. R. B. Knight, Esq. The church is ancient, and has a belfry. There are an endowed school, with £14 a year, and other charities £4.
It would be nice if we could do a little better than this, so information on the history, background, inhabitants and characters of the village would be welcomed to enhance this website.
