Astley Registers.

ASTLEY is a chapelry in the parish of St. Mary, Shrewsbury, Diocese of Lichfield, rural deanery of Wem, and hundred and division ... and it was formerly in the Liberties of Shrewsbury. The ... acres, and the population in 1891 was 244. It lies 4 1/2 miles from Shrewsbury.

The Parish Register Abstract, 1831. gives this account ... Registers:- "Astley C. No. I, Bap., Bur., Mar., 1680-1694. (Parchment), Bap., Bur., 1695-1801. Mar 1695-1753. No. IV Bap., Bur., 1802-1812. No. V., Mar., 1754-1812."

Unfortunately Register No. I., 1680-1694, is not now to hand in Astley, although diligent search has been made for it. A ... is preserved with the existing registers, which may have been of this missing book. At the top of this paper is written:-

At the foot of the page this couplet is written:-

Least age ye dayes of youth may chance to rue

In George Morris's M.S. "Extracts from Shropshire Re ... are fourteen extracts from the Astley Register, but only two been taken from the missing volume.

Morris states that the "Register begins May 13, 1579." bu ... register was presumably missing in 1831, and of course there ... of it now.

The first extant volume, 1695 to 1734 (No. II. above) contains ... of parchment, measuring 8 inches by 7 inches. In it at ... baptisms and burials. It is in fair preservation. The second volume, 1734 to 1801 (No. III.) contains 17 pages of parchment by 6 inches. It is a register of baptisms and burials, and ... till 1755. This book, as also the two remaining volumes, is ... preserved.

The third extant volume, 1801 to 1812 (No. IV.) contains 3 ... pages, only five of which are used. It contains entries of ... burials. The pages measure 11 inches by 7 inches.

The fourth volume (No. V. above) is the usual printed form ... register. It is a paper book of 32 pages, 15 inches by 9 2/3 ... contains ten marriages only from 1755 to 1812.

Where the Clergyman himself has kept the register, it is exceedingly well written, but it appears to have been left for many years to illiterate clerks.

The names to which the word "Mr." has been prefixed are Evans, and Boudler. "Mrs." occurs before Roggers and Maddox family were owners of property at Astley from an early ...

The following is a list of the Clergy named in the Register:-

Daniel Plumpton, curate, 1710.
Leonard Hotchkiss, M.A., St. John's College, Cambridge, curate 1773, Head-master of Shrewsbury School, 1735-1754.
Rowland Tench, minister, 1714-1727.
Samuel Betton, curate, 1728, minister, 1734, died 22 Oct. 1761.
James Atcherley, M.A., Magdalene College, Cambridge, minister, 1761, Head-master of Shrewsbury School, 1771-7798, died 3 March, 1804.
John Pitchford signs the register of births and baptisms as "officiating minister" in 1799 and ,800, and as " minister " in 1801 and 1802. He signs the marriage register as "minister" from 1799 to 1803.
Thomas S. Browne, minister, 1804.
John Atcherley, H.M.R.N., Dec. 16th, 1804.
James Matthews, M.A., Magdalene College, Cambridge, signs as "officiating minister" in 1795, and as "minister" in 1810, 7812, and 1815; buried 24 June, 1825.
William Vaughan, 1830-1861.
John Robert Legh, M.A., St. John's College, Cambridge, 1861-1883.
Arthur George Brooke, 1883-1899.
George Owen Holt, 1899.

The Church, which is dedicated to St. Mary, consists of chancel, nave, and western tower. In the south wall is a fine Norman doorway, now built up. The building was restored in 1883. The patronage was formerly in the gift of the Corporation of Shrewsbury and the Head-master of the Free School; but for some time past has been vested in trustees.

Astley is written Hesleie in Domesday, and in Saxon times it had belonged to the Church of St. Mary, Shrewsbury. To the repairs of the mother church, the inhabitants of Astley and Clive were bound to contribute, though from time to time they endeavoured, but unsuccessfully, to free themselves from this burden. At the dissolution of St. Mary's College, Queen Elizabeth granted its lands and rents in Astley to Shrewsbury Free School, but the stipend of the Curate of Astley was to be paid out of the School revenues.

The history of Astley, by the late Rev. J.B. Blakeway, is printed in the Shropshire Archeological Society's Transactions, Second Series, I. 118-128.

The transcripts of the Astley Registers were formerly returned to the Vicar of St. Mary's. Shrewsbury. Those for the years 1708-1753, and 1799 to 1812, are preserved there, and are in some cases fuller than the original register. This additional information is given in brackets in the present copy of the register. The names of the clergy and churchwardens signing the transcripts are printed at the end of the register.

The present transcript of the Astley registers was made by Mr. G.W.S. Sparrow, of Albrighton Hall, who has compared it with the transcripts at St. Mary's, and has also compared the proof-sheets, as they passed through the press, with the original registers. It is here printed by kind permission of the Rev. George Owen Holt, the present Vicar of Astley.

N.B.- It appears on inspection that this register has been negligently
kept during the years 1760 and 1761, and from 1772
to 1795, inclusive. Among many other omissions are the
following (on sufficient evidence):-

1793, Nov. 10. John, s. of John Billington and Ann ... bap.
1795, Oct. 4. William, s. of Edward Rice and Ann ... bap.

On sufficient evidence, JAMES MATTHEWS, Officiating Minister.

[The entries from 1791 to 1794 are also written on the fly-leaf at
the end of the book. They were probably written there by a
clerk. The only differences between the two versions are:-

1804] Astley. 35

1.-1791, Dec. 13. Jane, d. of Thomas Morgin and Mary ... bap.
the entry in the former place being, "Ann, d. of Thomas Morgan, etc."

3.- Sarah Howl is called Owl.]
