This parish, with the extraparochial liberty of Howick, comprises about 1820 acres, chiefly of a loamy soil resting on limestone: there are some quarries; and on a small stream which empties itself into the river Severn at St. Pierre, are paper-mills. Itton Court, the residence of W. Curre, Esq., and formerly belonging to the Morgans, of Pencoed, is an ancient mansion, situated on an eminence commanding an extensive view of the Severn and the adjoining picturesque country. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the king's books at £4. 10. 10., and in the gift of Mr. Curre: the income is derived from the commutation of the tithes for a rent-charge of £130, and from a farm in St. Arvan's parish, purchased by grants, &c., from government, which lets for £70; there is also a glebe of 8 acres. The church is situated in the park of Itton Court, and is in the early style, with an embattled tower; it has several memorials to the Curre family. In a wood near Itton Court is a small encampment.
