[When the gazetteer was edited for serial publication in the BSHM Newsletter, references were omitted since the bibliography was too substantial to be included. Publication on the web permits references to be included for material now being added to the website, but they are still absent from material originally prepared for the Newsletter - TM, August 2002]

Uppingham, Leicestershire

Uppingham, about 7 miles north of Corby, is the site of Uppingham School, a public school where Charles Howard Hinton was a teacher from 1880 to 1886: he went to teach in Japan for some years. At this time Howard Candler, a friend of Edwin Abbott Abbott, was also teaching here, providing a possible link between these two proponents of other dimensions. [Rucker]


Upton-upon-Severn, Hereford and Worcester

John Dee held the living (rectorship) of Upton upon Severn, from 1553 until 1583 when it was forfeited due to his not attending to legalities on his departure from England for six years [Jones, pp.11 & 21]. Some sources say he lived here, but this is not clear from other sources.
