About Quidhampton

Quidhampton is a village and civil parish in Wiltshire, England, with a population of 404 according to the 2001 census. It forms part of the Salisbury urban area and is around 2 miles west of the city centre. The parish and village adjoins Wilton to the west, the unparished area of Salisbury to the north and east, and Netherhampton to the south. The name Quidhampton probably means "muddy home farm" or "home farm with good manure", from the Old English cwéad (dung, dirt) + hām-tūn[1]. Until 1894, Quidhampton was a tithing of Fugglestone St Peter, and it then formed part of the new parish of Bemerton until it was established as a parish in its own right during the 20th century.
