== Market-Town&nbsp;History == "PERSHORE, '''''a market-town''''', and the head of a union, partly in the parish of St. Andrew, and partly in that of Holy Cross, Upper division of the hundred of Pershore, Pershore and E. divisions of the county of Worcester, 9 miles (S. E.) from Worcester, and 102 (N. W. by W.) from London; containing 2813 inhabitants. The name of this place, variously spelt Persore, Pearshore, and Pershore, is thought by Camden to be derived from Periscoran.&nbsp;&nbsp;St. Andrew embraces several chapelries, and comprises 6537 acres, of which about 700 are in the town portion.&nbsp; The living of St. Andrew's is a discharged vicarage, with the curacy of Besford annexed, valued in the king's books at £8. 19. 2.; net income, £588; patrons and appropriators, the Dean and Chapter of Westminster. The church of the Holy Cross is later English; it was enlarged and beautified in 1846: the living is held as a curacy, with the vicarage of St. Andrew's. There is a place of worship for '''''Baptists'''''."<ref>Samuel A. Lewis, A Topographical Dictionary of England (1848), pp. 1-5.
