Historical Descriptions

Mamble

A Topographical Dictionary of England 1831

Mamble, a parish in the lower division of the hundred of Doddingtree, county of Worcester, 6 miles (W.S.W.) from Bewdley, containing 386 inhabitants. The living is a discharged vicarage, with that of Bayton united, in the archdeaconry of Salop, and diocese of Hereford, rated in the king’s books at £9. 4. 7., and in the patronage of the Crown. The church is dedicated to St. John. There are extensive coal- works within the parish. Sodington, the ancient seat of the Blounts, was destroyed by fire in the great civil war, by some troops of the parliament. What remained of it was taken down in 1807, when several curious Roman relics were discovered beneath the foundations, whence it seems probable that it was anciently the site of a Roman fort.
