The river Marden flows south of the parish, which is bounded on the west by the river Avon. The church of St. Nicholas is a plain building of stone, consisting of chancel, nave of three bays, north aisle, and a turret containing one bell and has a curious and very fine Norman font: there are 70 sittings. The separate register dates only from 1850; previous to that date entries were made in the Chippenham register, which dates from 1578. The living is a rectory, annexed for more than six centuries to the vicarage of Chippenham, joint net yearly value £193, including 17 acres of glebe here, in the gift of the Dean and Chapter of Christ Church, Oxford, and held since 1861 by the Rev. John Rich M.A. late student of that house, hon. canon of Bristol, rural dean of Chippenham and surrogate, who is also rector of Kellaways, and resides at Chippenham. The principal landowners are Samuel Francis Glossop Bythesea esq. of Freshford, near Bath; Frank Langton esq. of 11 Egerton place, Brompton, London; and Mrs. Palmer of Trowbridge. The soil is various; subsoil, gravel. Nearly the whole of the parish consists of pasture lands. The area of this chapelry is included in Chippenham; the population in 1891 was 39.
The children of this place attend the school at East Tytherton.

Captain Theobald Michael Langton was born in South Kensington on 31.5.1871. He was educated at St.Gregory's College, Midsomer Norton, Somerset. After the R.M.A. Sandurst he was Second Lieutenant 4.3.1891, 21th Hussars; Lieutenant 12.6.1895 21st Lancers; Captain 28.12.1899 21st Lancers. He was employed with the Uganda Protectorate from 23rd February 1898. He was awarded the East and Central Africa Medal with no clasp whilst attached to the Uganda Rifles (TNA WO100/90) and awarded the Africa General Service Medal with clasp Uganda 1900 (for operations against the Nandis) attached Uganda Rifles (TNA WO100/91). He resigned his commission to date 4th June 1904.
Commissioned Temporary Major 12 November 1914 Langton was employed on recruiting duties and appointed Inspector of Administration Services, Irish Command at the Army HQ, Parkgate Dublin. He remained a Staff Officer until the end of WW1, no doubt witnessing the Easter Uprising of 1916. He saw no overseas service.
Little is known regarding his life following his resignation from the Army in 1904 and his demobilisation after WW1, but his financial business ventures were to land him in court, on 22 Januay 1934 The Times records from their correspondent in Paris........
The Correctional Court here yesterday imposed fines amounting to 5,000,000 francs (£40,000 at par) on two British subjects Major Theobald Langton and Mr Edward Bryce for offences against a law of 1918, since revoked, forbidding the export of capital.... according to the prosecution the two Englishmen bought in 1920 large numbers of foreign securities, paying for them by cheques on London and Amsterdam, and sold them on the Paris Bourse. Major Langton was fined 3,000,000 francs and Mr Bryce was fined 2,000,000 francs. The law under which they were convicted was repealed in 1928, but it was provided at the time that proceedings begun before abrogation should be continued.
An appeal reduced Major Langton's fine to 15,000 francs in August 1938.
