Parish History

Milston is 3 miles north of Amesbury, one of a string of villages along the River Avon.  The parish church of St Mary serves both Milston and Brigmerston.  Lancelot Addison (1632-1703) was a Rector of Milston, later to become Dean of Lichfield and Archdeacon of Coventry.   He was the father of Joseph Addison, born 1 May 1672 in Milston, the famous English dramatist.
