Worcestershire Parishes   Work In Progress

 

Known as an Island County, Worcestershire or sometimes without the 'shire' has its outline as a very irregular quadrangle and in 1872 its boundaries were thought to be artificial but in which way and to what extent was not explained. Inhabited in ancient times by the British Cotnavii, Dobuni and Silures, it was divided by the Romans between their Flavia Caesariensis and their Britannia Secunda, forming part of the commonwealth of Wiccas and was all incorporated with Mercia.

There are Roman settlements at Upton and Worcester with ancient British barrows at Clent Heath, a Danish camp at Conderton and four ruined medieval castles, and in more modern times saw the great battles at Evesham and Worcester.

[The names Coxhill, Ellcox, Hancox, Sancox, Simcox, Willcox occur also in this parish]
