STOKESAY, a parish in the hundred of MUNSLOW, county of SALOP, 7 miles (N.W.) from Ludlow, containing 564 inhabitants. The living is a discharged vicarage, in the archdeaconry of Salop, and diocese of Hereford, rated in the king's books at £4. 13. 4., and in the patronage of William Smith, Esq. The church is dedicated to St. John the Baptist.
