Kintbury, a parish (formerly a market town) in the hundred of Kintbury Eagle, county of Berks, 3-1/4 mi. east southeast of Hungerford, lies abt 13 miles southeast of Sparsholt (See also Parishes within 11 miles of Sparsholt, Berks). "... The living is a vicarage, in the archdeaconry of Berks, and diocese of Salisbury... Charles Dundas, Esq. was patron in 1798. The church, dedicated to St. Mary, is partly in the Norman style of architecture. There is a place of worship for Wesleyan Methodists. The Kennet and Avon canal passes through the parish; and on the banks of the river Kennet there is a silk-throwing mill, affording employment to about one hundred persons. Kintbury had formerly a market on Friday, and two annual fairs, one on the festival of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary, the other on that of St. Simon and St. Jude, granted, in 1268, to the nuns of Shaftesbury. In digging a grave here, in 1762, a considerable number of Saxon coins of Edred, Edwy, and Edmund, was discovered under a scull... includes the hamlet of Ballesdon (Lewis, 1830)
