Staunton on Wye

Herefordshire village. Southey’s uncle Herbert Hill had been presented to the living there in 1790 by John Hampden-Trevor (1748–1824). Hill was an absentee Vicar and only took up residence in the parish in 1807 on his return from Portugal after the French invasion. He resigned in 1810 when appointed to the living at Streatham.
