"ACCONBURY, or ACORNBURY, a parish in the upper division of the hundred of WORMELOW, county of HEREFORD, 4 miles (S.) from Hereford, containing 148 inhabitants. The living is a perpetual curacy with that of Callow, annexed to the vicarage of Dewsall, in the peculiar jurisdiction of the Dean of Hereford, endowed with £400 royal bounty. The church is dedicated to St. John the Baptist. A nunnery of the order of St. Augustine was founded here, in the reign of John, by Margery, wife of Walter de Lacy, to the honour of the Holy Cross, the revenue of which, at the dissolution, was £75.7. 5.: the remains have been converted into a farm-house, and some stone coffins are still preserved. On the summit of Acconbury hill are traces of a large Roman encampment, of a square form, the rampart of which, on the east side, is plainly discernible."[From Samuel Lewis A Topographical Dictionary of England  (1831) ©Mel Lockie]
