Westonzoyland village, Somerset

Westonzoyland is a village and civil parish in Somerset, England. It is situated on the Somerset Levels, 4 miles south east of Bridgwater.

The name of the parish derives from its location on the "island" of Sowy, an area of slightly higher ground on the Somerset Levels between the River Cary and the River Parrett. The parish of Westernzoyland was created in 1515 when the parish of Sowy was divided. Westonzoyland refers to the western-most settlement on Sowy. The parish of Westonzoyland was part of the Whitley Hundred. The area around Westonzoyland was farmed as common land when it was owned by the Abbey at Glastonbury, who during the 12th and 13th centuries encouraged tenants to undertake large scale reclamation of the marshland. 722 acres were enclosed in 1234.
