Parish in the County of Worcestershire


Wrongly identified as the Linde of DB in VCH i. 309. See Lindon in Rock infra 73. It is now in Oswaldslow Hundred, but since its constituent members Eardiston and Knighton are in Doddingtree Hundred in DB and according to Heming (309), it is here taken in that Hundred. It first appears in Oswaldslow in 1275 (SR).
