ASTON-CANTLOW (St. John the Baptist), a parish, in the union of Alcester, Stratford division of the hundred of Barlichway, S. division of the county of Warwick, 4 miles (N. E. by E.) from Alcester. This place appears to have derived the adjunct to its name from the family of Cantelu, or Cantelupe, of whom William de Cantelupe received from Henry III.

The parish is intersected by the river Alne, on the left bank of which the village is situated. The Stratford canal also passes through. The chapel of St. Andrew, Wilncote, was built in the year 1841.[1]
