Milton Lilbourne is a parish in the Hindred of Kinwardstone, and Union of Pewsey; it comprises three tithings, viz., Milton, Fyfield and Clench, 2 miles east from Pewsey, 14 east from Devizes, and 7 south from Marlborough. The living is a vicarage, in the diocese of Salisbury, in the gift of the Rev. T.H. Gale, B.A: the Rev. [John] Henry Gale is the incumbent. The church, a very ancient structure, with square tower and six bells, is supposed to have been erected about the 10 century. The Kennett and Avon Canal passes through the northern portion of the parish. The area is 3,502 acres; and the population, in 1851, was 677.

Fyfield or Fifield Manor House, the residence of the Penruddocke family for several generations, is in the Elizabethan style, and well worthy the survey of the antiquarian.

Clinch, or Clench, is a tithing, 2 miles north; Totridge, three-quarters of a mile north; Little Salisbury, half a mile west; New Mill, one mile north.
