Laxton  Northamptonshire


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

LAXTON, a parish in the district of Uppingham and county of Northampton; near the river Welland at the boundary with Rutland, 3¼ miles SE of Seaton r. station, and 6 SE of Uppingham. It has a post office under Uppingham. Acres, 1, 370. Real property, £1, 331. Pop., 119. Houses, 28. ...

The property is divided among a few. Laxton Hall is the seat of Lord Carberry; has a fine Ionic portico, and a fine vestibule; and contains a good collection of pictures, chiefly by the old masters. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Peterborough. Value, not reported. Patron, Lord Carberry. The church is very ancient, and was recently in a dilapidated condition. There is a small free school.
