Descriptive gazetteer entries

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

LINLEY, a township in More parish, Salop; 3¼ miles NNE of Bishops-Castle. Pop., 123. Linley Hall is the seat of the ancient family of More; one of whom was Col. More, the defender of Hopton castle, and translator of Mede's "Clavis." Remains of a Roman villa were found, near the Hall, in 1856. The township is a meet for the United Pack hounds.

This is the only descriptive gazetter entry we have found, but you may be able to find further references to Linley by doing a full-text search here.
