Whistones  Worcestershire

 

In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Whistones like this:

WHISTONES, a tything in Claines parish, Worcestershire; 2 miles N of Worcester. Real property, £11,073. Pop. in 1851, 2,998; in 1861, 3,191. Houses, 643. See Claines.

The location is that given by the Worcester Branch of the Birmingham and Midland Society for Genealogy and Heraldry (http://www.worcesterbmsgh.co.uk/Whistones.html, accessed 13/1/2011). Whistones would seem to be an earlier name for the part of Worcester now known as the Tything.
