Weobly in 1838
Weobly, in Stretford hundred, is situated 13 miles from Hereford. The town has declined, and no weekly market is held. Many of the houses are extremely picturesque, and the church has considerable beauty. It was formerly a borough in the power of the marquis of Bath, and returned two members to parliament ; no charter of incorporation is known, neither does the borough appear to have been governed by any municipal officer.
