Notes: This site is called Weston on recent Ordnance Survey maps. In 1817, William Pitt's Topographical History of Staffordshire called it Weston-on-Trent, describing it as 'a small village situated on the banks of the river Trent, about a mile to the north of Ingestre Hall'. In 1905 a paper by Alex Scrivener, read to the North Staffordshire Field Club (vol xxxix) calls the location Weston-upon-Trent. Since there are two further Westons by the river Trent, one in Derbyshire and one in Nottinghamshire, this has caused some confusion. Weston-on-Trent in Derbyshire was visited and no yews found there, while an old yew has been found in the churchyard of Weston in Nottinghamshire.
