Winchcomb Universal British Directory 1791

Is a parish twelve miles in compass, watered by a brook that runs into the Avon, ninety-three miles from London, sixteen from Gloucester, six from Cheltenham, twelve from Tewkesbury, twelve from Stow, and twelve from Northleach. It is situate on the Cotswold-hills, is of great antiquity, and was formerly a county of itself, and enjoyed many privileges. Kenulph King of Mercia had a palace here in the eighth century; he also founded a monastery in the place, whose abbot sat in parliament as a baron; but not the least vestige now remains of all its former grandeur. The church is a good building, hath two aisles, a large chancel, and a lofty tower adorned with battlements and pinnacles. It is a curacy, worth no more than ten pounds a-year, though the impropriation is worth three hundred pounds annually. Here was formerly a very rich mitred abbey, founded by Offa king of Mercia. – The steeple of the church was thrown down by a violent storm on October 5, 1091.

Winchcomb is a populous town, but carries on very little trade, owing in a great measure to the badness of the roads in its vicinity, which are by far the worst in the county. The town, or borough as it is still called, is governed by two bailiffs, annually chosen; and has a market on Saturday, and three annual fairs, viz. the last Saturday in March, May 6, and July 28; the first and last are very large fairs for horses.

Here is an alms-house for twelve poor women, and three charity-schools. – The inhabitants formerly planted tobacco here to very great account, till they were restrained in the 12th of Charles II after which the town by little and little decayed, and is now generally poor, and the very scites of its ancient magnificent buildings are levelled and ploughed up. – Banker: Thomas Fisher, who draws on Badger and Hudson, London. Cheltenham is the post-town, from whence there is a cross-post. – A wagon weekly to London. – The following are the principal inhabitants:
