An extract from the Topographical Dictionary of England 1831 by Samuel Lewis:
POWICK, a parish in the lower division of the hundred of PERSHORE, county of WORCESTER, 2¾ miles (S. S. W.) from Worcester, comprising the chapelry of Clieveload, and the hamlet of Woodsfield, and containing, exclusively of a part of the chapelry of Bransford, which is in this parish, 1452 inhabitants. The living is a discharged vicarage, with the curacy of Mordeford annexed, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Worcester, rated in the king's books at £10. 2. 7, and in the patronage of the Earl of Coventry. The church is dedicated to St. Peter and St. Lawrence. The river Teme is here crossed by an ancient bridge, a short distance below which it falls into the Severn. In December 1642, an action was fought near this place, between the parliamentarian troops under Colonel Sandes, and the royalists under Prince Rupert and Prince Maurice, in which the former were defeated, and the colonel was mortally wounded.
