Atcham Registers.

ATCHAM, formerly Attingham, is a village and parish beautifully situated on the river Severn, about four miles south-east from Shrewsbury. Over the river is a handsome stone bridge of seven arches.

The parish comprises the four Domesday manors of Atcham, Berwick Maviston, and Uckington (including Duncot), on the north-east side of the Severn, and Emstrey (including Cronkhill, Chilton and Hernesse), on its south-west bank. It is in the rural deanery of Shrewsbury, arch- deaconry of Salop, and diocese of Lichfield, and in the hundreds of Bradford South and Condover.

The area is 2,998 acres, of which 99 acres are water, and the population in 1911 was 363 in the civil and 425 in the ecclesiastical parish. The census of 1801 showed 430 inhabitants; in 1831 there were 463, and in 1841, 513 with 95 houses.

Longner Hall, the seat of the Burtons, is in St. Chad's parish, but the grounds are largely in Atcham and Upton Magna. In the garden is the tomb of Edward Burton, who was buried here in 1558, having been refused burial at St. Chad's.

The meaning of the name Attingham or Ettingham is " The home of the children of Eata." St. Eata was one of the twelve young men trained by St. Aidan for missionary work among the heathen Saxons, and presumably he preached here, - or some of his disciples did so. We may look upon him as the evangelist of this part of Shropshire. In 664 he became Abbot of Lindisfarne, and in 678 was consecrated Bishop of the Bernicians. He died in 686. (See Bede's Ecclesiastical History; Dictionary of National Biography, xvi, 336.)

In pre-Norman times Atcham was an estate of St. Alkmund's Church, on which it was (with ten other manors) probably bestowed by Ethelfleda, lady of the Mercians, the daughter of Alfred the Great. Domesday gives this account of Atcham:-" The same Church held (in Saxon times) and still holds Atingeham, and Godebold holds it of the Church. Here is one hide. In demesne there are 1 ploughs; and (there are) 2 villeins and 3 boors with 3 ploughs. It was worth 10s. (per annum); now it yields 6s. 8d." Godebold was a Norman priest, and friend and adviser of Earl Roger de Montgomery; at Domesday he held Lilleshall, Uckington, Atcham, and Preston Gobalds (which still retains his name), as tenant to St Alkmund's Church. He was succeeded by his son Robert, who seems to have espoused the cause of Earl Robert de Belesme, and thus forfeited his possessions, which were granted by Henry I. to Richard de Belmeis.

In the twelfth century Lilleshall Abbey was founded, and endowed by Richard de Belmeis with the estates of St. Alkmund (including Atcham and Uckington), which grant was confirmed by King Stephen. Sir Helyas de Ettingham, a native of Atcham, and custos of a house at Feckenham for Kings Henry II. and Richard I., was a person of some note in his day, and held a virgate of land in Atcham under the Abbot of Lilleshall. In 1269, King Henry III. granted license to the Abbot to hold a fair at Atcham on September 1 and the two following days; and in 1276, Edward I. granted license for a fair on May 26 and the two following days.

iv. ATCHAM REGISTERS.

Lilleshall Abbey continued to hold Atcham until the dissolution. The Valor of 1534-5 gives the value of the manor as being 35 per annum, and the farm of the Rectorial tithes as l0 6s. 8d. Out of this, 13s. 4d. was paid annually to Francis Chorleton, steward of Atcham, 40s. to the bailiff, and 6s. 8d. to the Archdeacon of Salop for the Church of Atcham. The vicar also paid 3s. 4d. for synodals and procurations.

The Minister's Accounts of 1540-1 give the receipts from Atcham as amounting to 37 4s. 8d. At the Dissolution, the manor of Attingham otherwise called Atcham, the advowson of the Church, and Attingham Grange, with other lands and tithes in Attingham and Berwick, were granted by the Crown, on 6th July, 2 Edward VI. (1549), to Sir Thomas Palmer, knight, of Augmeringe, co. Sussex, subject to certain charges. Sir Thomas, who was a soldier of some note, was concerned in the rising on behalf of Lady Jane Grey, and attainted, and beheaded, after having enjoyed his estates for only six years.* After his attainder they were granted on 28th June, 1 Mary (1554), to Sir John Gage, K.G., for a term of years. He died in 1556.+ William Gage was in possession in 1578, and John Gage died seised of the manor in 1597.

The tenants of Atcham Grange were a family of the name of Beyste, or Byest. On 19th February, 1576-7, John Beyste obtained a grant of the reversion of the manor of Atcham, with the rectory and advowson, Grange, tithes, and other lands in Atcham, Berwick, Emstrey and Home, Cronkhill, and Chilton. A few days later, on 23rd February, he purchased from William Gage and his wife their interest in the manor and lands. He died without issue on 30th June, 1587, leaving his three sisters his co-heiresses. They were Anne, the wife of Edward Cludde of Orleton, Katherine, the wife of Thomas Burton of Longner, and Margaret, the wife of John Dawes of Atcham and Caughley (she married secondly Thomas Jewkes). Shortly before his death, John Beyste, on 19th June, 1587, had settled his estates, in default of issue, on his three sisters in tail, with ultimate remainder to himself in fee. On 12th February, 30 Elizabeth, livery was granted to them out of the Wards. On 28th August, 1591, the sisters made a partition of the premises: by which the manor of Edgebold, with the tithes of Emstrey and Home, and Chilton Farm, went to Edward and Anne Cludde; Atcham Grange, with 22 closes in Atcham, the advowson of the vicarage, and the tithes of the Grange, Cronkhill and Chilton, went to Thomas and Katherine Burton; and all other meadows and pastures and three water mills in Atcham, and the tithes of the same and of Berwick, went to John Dawes and Margaret his wife. It is conceived that the manor of Atcham then passed to the Dawes, for in 1632 the King granted license to Margaret Jewkes, widow (who had survived both her husbands), to alienate the manor of Atcham to John Frogmer. Two years later, on 26th March, 1634, Margaret Jewkes of Caughley, widow, by her will devised the manor of Atcham for 21 years, after the death of herself and her son John Dawes, to her executors upon certain trusts. On 1st May, 1677, John Dawes settled the manor of Atcham upon himself and his heirs male, with remainder to his daughter Helen and her children. Helen Dawes was married twice, first to John Coyney, of Weston Coyney, by whom she had issue Sampson Coyney and Helen Coyney, and secondly to William Parker, of Park Hall, by whom she had a daughter Mary Parker. Helen Coyney, her daughter by her first husband, married William Gower.

In Hilary Term, 1693-4, a Recovery was suffered of the manor of Attingham, with 20 messuages, 3 water mills, 20 gardens, 200 acres of land, 40 acres of meadow, 200 acres of pasture, 20 acres of wood, 20 acres of furze, and a fishery in the river Severn, of which William Gower and Helen his wife and Mary Parker were vouchees. On 25th July, 1700, William Gower and Helen his wife conveyed the manor of Attingham to Rowland Hill of Hawkestone, during their lives, for 3,413; and in 1 Anne

(1703) they obtained an Act for the sale of the manor of Attingham, which confirmed the sale to the Right Hon. Richard Hill, son of Rowland, who had died. On 7th July, 1703, Richard Hill settled the manor upon his sister Margaret, the wife of Thomas Harwood of Tern Hall, and their son Thomas Harwood, who in 1727 assumed the name of Hill. He was thrice M.P. for Shrewsbury, and died 14th June, 1782. His son Noel Hill was created in 1784 Lord Berwick of Attingham, and his descendant, the eighth Lord Berwick, is the present lord of the manor of Atcham.

Attingham Hall, the seat of Lord Berwick, is beautifully situated in a park of 600 acres, stocked with deer, and was erected towards the close of the eighteenth century by the first Lord Berwick, partly on the site of the old Tern Hall, from a design by Stewart. A full description of the Hall is given in Leach's County Seats of Shropshire. Over the entrance gateway is the motto, " Qui uti scit, ei bona." In 1798, six Roman sepulchral urns were found in digging for a watercourse in Attingham Park.

Atcham Grange and other lands in Atcham, have since the partition of 1591 remained in the Burton family, and they are the property of Richard F. Lingen Burton, esq., of Longner Hall.

Atcham Bridge was first erected by the Abbots of Lilleshall, between 1200 and 1210, and completed about 1222. Leland, who wrote in 1540, describes it as being" a fayre stone long bridge on Severne, to pass over toward Roxester." The bridge was erected at the expense of Sir Rowland Hill, Lord Mayor of London in 1550. The present handsome stone bridge of seven arches was built about the year 1776, from a design by Mr. Gwyn. The old bridge was, according to the Annual Register, broken down in January, 1768, by shoals of floating ice. In the 13th century there was a ferry, and the Abbot had two boats " to carry men crossing over." In the Civil War it was garrisoned by the Royalists, but was captured by the Parliamentarians in the summer of 1645.

The bridge over the Tern on the Holyhead and London Road was originally erected by Sir Rowland Hill in 1550. A new bridge was erected at the expense of the County in 1780, and decorated at the cost of Noel Hill, esq.

BERWICK MAVISTON, formerly Berwick Malvoisin, was at Domesday held of Earl Roger de Montgomery by Rainald the Sheriff, and it is thus described in the Survey:-" The same Rainald holds Berewic. Uluiet held it in the time of King Edward. Here is half a hide. In demesne there are 2 ploughs and 4 neat herds, and (there are) 4 villeins and 3 boors with 2 ploughs. Here is one league of wood paying 16d.; and there might be one plough more here (employed)." In Henry Is.'s reign Berwick was granted to some feoffee of the Fitz Alans, who were Rainald's successors, as in 1165-6 it was found that Henry Malvoisin held Berwick " of old feoffment," in the barony of Fitz Alan. This Henry gave two- thirds of the tithes of Berwick to the Abbey of Lilleshall, where he desired to be buried. He was dead in 1196, but Berwick continued in his descendants until the close of the 14th century, and the place was called from its lords Berwick Malvoisin, and sometimes Berwick juxta, Attingham. The Malvoisins were of a Norman stock, akin to the family who gave their name to Mavesyn Ridware in Staffordshire.

It was found in 1397-8 that Richard Ottley held half a knight's fee in Berwick Mauvesyn under the Earl of Arundel.

About the same time John Malvoisin died without issue seised of this manor, and was succeeded by his niece Edith, daughter of his brother Adam Malvoisin. She married Thomas Wydecombe, or Whitcombe, of Wydecombe in the parish of Mortock, Somersetshire. The Whitcombes were a branch of the family of the Counts of Boulogne, one of which family became possessed of Wydecombe, and his descendants took their name

vi. ATCHAM REGISTERS.

from their estate. Ten generations of Whitcombes held Berwick Maviston, until 1689, when Mary Whitcombe, the heiress of Berwick, married Thomas Grant of Hambrook, in Gloucestershire. Their grandson Major Richard Grant in 1777 sold the estate to Thomas Hill (formerly Harwood) of Tern Hall; and the manor of Berwick Maviston is now the property of his descendant Lord Berwick.

Until the close of the 18th century Berwick was a place of some consequence, having within its bounds (says Dukes) no less than four mansion houses, besides farmhouses. Berwick Maviston was the last of these houses left standing; it was a moated house with three gables, built by Thomas Whitcombe in 1585, and taken down by Lord Berwick in 1798, when its site and lands were thrown into Attingham Park. There is an illustration of this house in the Gentleman's Magazine for 1838, and also in Mrs. Stackhouse Acton's Castles and Old Mansions of Shropshire, page 41.

The Calcott family occupied another moated dwelling, and traces of the moat are visible near the Attingham Home Farm, between Atcham and Berwick Wharf. This farm-house, formerly their residence, has the name " Calcott " cut with a diamond on a pane of glass. The Russells were another family long resident at Berwick Maviston.

Berwick Grove is a property belonging to the Burtons of Longner; and Berwick Wharf belongs partly to the Burtons, and partly to Lord Berwick.

Noel Hill, esq., and his son Thomas, Lord Berwick, acquired by purchase and exchange almost the entirety of Berwick Maviston, which now forms part of the domain of Attingham.

The tithes of Berwick Maviston passed in some way to the Langley family. Peter Langley had three daughters, Eleanor, Martha the wife of William Cludde, and another who was the wife of Charles Stanier. Eleanor Langley by her will dated 14th August, 1744 (proved at Lichfield, 29th April, 1756), left these tithes to her nephews Edward Cludde and John Stanier. Ultimately they became vested in William Cludde (formerly Pemberton) and Charles Price Stanier, who conveyed them on 6th April, 1805, to the Rev. Henry Burton.

UCKINGTON, like Atcham, was an estate of St. Alkmund's Church in pre- Norman times, and was probably bestowed upon it by Ethelfleda. Domesday gives this account of Uckington:-" The same Church held (in Saxon times) and still holds Uchintone; and Godebold (holds it) of the Church. Here are four hides geldable. In demesne are 3 ploughs, and (there are) 2 radmans and 3 boors with one plough, and 3 ploughs more might be (employed). Here are six ox-herds. In King Edward's time it was worth 24s. (per annum); now it is worth 30s." Like Atcham, it passed from St. Alkmund's to Lilleshall Abbey, with which it remained until the Dissolution. At Duncot, which was a member of Uckington, the Abbot had a mill on the Tern, and in the 12th century there were disputes between the Abbot and one Robert de Ardi (or Dardif) who had a vivary or fishpond near Uckington. Robert Dardif's estate passed to Philip de Nugent, who about 1200 gave his fishery of Uckington to the Abbey. William Fitz Alan the second, who died in 1210, gave to the Abbey 30 acres of land in Austaneshill, which was a field of Uckington lying near Beslow. The Abbot of Haughmond, as rector of Wroxeter, seems to have had the whole tithes of this field. In 1285 the Abbot of Lilleshall had a grant of free-warren in Okinton. The Ministers' Accounts of 1540-1 give the receipts of the Abbey from Uckington and its Mill as being 14 6s. 6d. It was found by inquisition taken 4th August, 1620, that John Barker died seised of the manor and lands in Uckington held of the King in capite, and worths per annum. The manor came ultimately to the Noel-Hills, and it is now with Duncot and

ATCHAM REGISTERS. vii.

Wheathill the property of Lord Berwick. Hardwicke's MSS. state that, whilst attached to the Abbey, there was a small Chapel at Uckington for the accommodation of the inhabitants, which shortly after the Reformation fell into ruins, and was subsequently entirely removed.

On 6th March, 1608-9, Sir Francis Newport purchased the tithes of Uckington from John Draycott, and they continued in his family until 1797, when Lord Berwick obtained them by exchange with Sir William Pulteney.

EMSTREY was in pre-Norman times the heritage of the Earls of Mercia, and was an extensive and valuable manor. On the south-east it was bounded by the Severn at Atcham, and it extended along the western bank of that river for nearly three miles and ran right up to the Abbey Foregate. Earl Roger de Montgomery, when he founded Shrewsbury Abbey gave Emstrey, together with Eyton-on-Severn and Bourton, at once to it, and William Rufus confirmed the grant. Domesday gives this account of Emstrey:-" The same Church holds Eiminstre. Earl Edwin held it (in Saxon times). Here 9 hides pay geld. In demesne there are 4 ploughs, and (there are) 22 villeins and 5 boors and one Frenchman with 12 ploughs among them all. Here are 20 serfs, and a wood which will fatten 40 swine. In the city (of Shrewsbury) there is one measure of land, of (the annual value of) 2s. In the time of King Edward it was worth 100s. (per annum), and afterwards 4. Now it is worth 11. In this vill Aluric held one hide paying geld, and could go whither he would, and this land was worth 5s. Now St. Peter holds it, and it is waste."

The manor of Emstrey included Cronkhill and Chilton, and an estate called Hernesse, or the Lordship, which seems to have extended northeastwards from the Abbey Foregate to Atcham. In 1256, Henry III. granted to the monks of Shrewsbury free-warren in their demesnes at Emstrey. A rent-roll of the Abbey estates drawn up about 1490 gives the total value of Emstrey as 44 12s. 8d. The Valor of 1534 values it at 43 6s. 8d., of which 42 10s. 4d. was from Hernys, and 16s. 4d. from Cronkhill and Chilton. The Minister's Accounts of 1541-2 gives the total value of " The Domain of Hernes in the Parish of Atcham " as being 64 5s. 1d.

After the dissolution of Shrewsbury Abbey, Edward VI., in 1553, granted the manor of Heroes, with lands in Chilton, Cronkhill, Emstree, &c., to Reginald Corbett of Fitz, John Gratewood of Wollerton, and John Mackworth of Salop. William Gratewood (son of John) in 1572 sold the manor of Emstrey to Thomas Bromley, afterwards Lord Chancellor of England. It remained in his family for several generations, and was at length sold to the family of Jones of Shrewsbury, and ultimately passed to Sir Thomas Tyrwhitt Jones, Bart. It is now the property of his grandson the Hon. Sir Raymond Robert Tyrwhitt-Wilson, Bart.

Cronkhill lies about half a mile to the south of Atcham. After the dissolution it was granted by Edward VI., in 1552, to John Mackworth, to hold as the fortieth part of a knight's fee. He died in 1570, but Crook-hill continued in his family for 4 or 5 generations; early in the eighteenth century it was sold to the Harwoods, from whom it has descended to the present owner, Lord Berwick, who resides here.

Chilton was held under the Abbey of Shrewsbury by John Jones (second son of John Jones of Holt) as early as 1442. He was succeeded by his nephew William Jones, who left two sons,- (1) Thomas Jones of Uckington, ancestor of the family of Jones of Shrewsbury, of Sir Thomas Jones, Chief Justice of the Common Pleas, Sir Samuel Jones, founder of the Berwick Leybourne almshouses, and the family of Jones seated at Stanley Hall; and (2) Richard Jones of Chilton. Seventh in descent from

viii. ATCHAM REGISTERS.

this Richard Jones was William Jones of Chilton Grove; he married Sarah, daughter of Edward Gibbons of Ettingshall, but died without issue 7th February, 1815, when his estates passed to his first cousin John Jones (son of John Jones of Finnant). On his death 6th Oct., 1816, the Chilton estate passed to his nephew Richard Congreve of Burton, co. Chester (son of Rev. Richard Congreve and Martha Jones), who sold it in 1830 to Robert Burton, esq., of Longner, in whose family it still remains.

Near to Chilton Grove is Chilton Heython, formerly a village. Part of this belongs to Lord Berwick. Other part is the property of the Hon. Sir Raymond Robert Tyrwhitt-Wilson, Bart., of Stanley Hall, a descendant in the female line of the family of Jones of Chilton, to which family it presumably passed in the same manner as Emstrey.

A property called " the farm of Chilton " belonged to John Beyste, and, at the partition after his death, in 1591, came to Edward and Katherine Cludde. It remained in the Cludde family for two or three generations. It since came to the Jones family, from whom it has descended to the Tyrwhitt-Wilsons.

At one time coal was found at Emstrey. Dr. Taylor's MS. Chronicle, under the year 1572-3, states that " one Richard Gardiner of Shrewsbury, dyer and draper, attemptyd and put in prooffe to fynnde owt coles about the towne in soondry placys, and in one place in especiall callyd Emsterie heye hard by the sayd towne he foound by hys great dyligence and travell greate store of seecole, &c." But the Emstrey coal pits have long since been worked out and forgotten, though traces of them were visible 90 years ago, and may still be detected.

The Subsidy Roll of 1327, a grant to Edward III. of one-twentieth of all moveable goods to meet the expenses of the Scotch War, gives the earliest list of the inhabitants of Atcham. Their names were as follows:-

The three last named families also entered their pedigrees at the later Visitation of 1663.

THE CHURCH.

The earliest reference to Atcham Church is in the Ecclesiastical History of Ordericus Vitalis, in which the historian states that he was born on XIV. Kal. Mart. (Febr. 6th), 1075, and baptized on the Saturday of Easter following by Ordericus the priest, who was also his godfather, at Ettingesham, in the Church of St. Eata the confessor, which stands on the bank on the river Severn.*

The present Church of St. Eata is not the one then existing, the earliest detail being Norman work of the 12th century. The large stones in the nave and chancel may have been brought from Uriconium. The Church consists of chancel, nave with south porch, and western tower. The chancel dates from the latter half of the 13th century, the doorway and windows being late Early English. The earliest feature in the nave is the 12th century Norman window in the north wall; of the other windows two are perpendicular, and one is modern; the south doorway is a 13th century insertion. The south porch bears the date 1685. The roof of the nave is collar-braced, and may be 15th century work. The tower is late Transitional, but the upper portion is of the Perpendicular style. In the east wall of the Church are two deeply splayed holes or windows. There are some interesting fragments of 15th or 16th century glass in a window in the north wall. There are a number of monuments to the Burton and Noel-Hill families, to the Calcotts of Berwick Maviston, Jones of Chilton Grove, Jones and Ravenshaw of Uckington, Grant, &c. Near the pulpit is an incised slab to Edward Burton (who died 1524), his wife Joyce and seven daughters, brought from St. Chad's after its fall in 1788. A brass remembers Robert Lyster of Duncot, who died in 1682, and Anne his wife. Several of the inscriptions are given in the Gentleman's Magazine for 1806: a brass to Thomas Calcot of Betton, who died in 1677, and to Margery his wife (since lost), a tablet to John Waring, A.M., who died 1794; tablets to Samuel Jones, vicar, died 1725, and to Samuel Fowler, 46 years minister, died 1794, and Ann his relict; and " An Epitaph or Epicedium," some verses preserved in a wooden frame, written by Thomas Lyster of Duncot, sometime churchwarden, who died in 1723, aged 88. Some stained glass in the east and north windows, to the memory of Blanche Parry, who died in 1589, was brought from Bacton Church, Herefordshire, in 1811, by Mrs. Henry Burton; she was a daughter of William Gittins of Chilton. The font bears the date 1675, and has the initials " IS. WP." Churchwardens. There are six bells, of which four were cast by Rudhall in 1709, the other two were re-cast by Mears in 1829. In 1549 there were " iiij bellys of oone accorde to be ronggon together." The Church was carefully repaired in 1896.*

The Church Goods Return of 6th May, 1553, states that there were at Attingham four bells of one accord, with one sanctus bell, also one chalice of silver, with the paten thereto belonging. William Cuerton was the incumbent, and Thomas Maddoxe and Robert Cotewall, Churchwardens. A return of 2nd June, 1549, had shown " a chaleys withe a pattent of sylver parcell gilt " and four bells. In the wall to the right of the doorway are some well-preserved arrow marks. Atcham Church is said to have been used as a blockhouse during the Civil War to protect the waterway of the Severn. It has been pointed out that " the Church both externally and internally bears marks of having been struck by cannon balls." (Garrisons of Shropshire, page 28).

In 1646, Atcham was placed in the First Classical Presbytery of Shropshire. At the Religious Census in 1676, there were at Atcham 238 Conformists and 9 Nonconformists, of the age of sixteen years and upwards.

x. ATCHAM REGISTERS.

It is worth recording that the well-known Fletcher (or De la Flechere) of Madeley, who in 1752 became tutor of Thomas Hill's sons at Tern Hall, after his ordination in 1757, preached his first sermon in Atcham Church, and often officiated here and at Wroxeter gratuitously until 1760, when he became Vicar of Madeley, where he died in 1785. On 13th July, 1879, the Church was struck by lightning, during afternoon service, but sustained little injury.

THE REGISTERS.

The Parish Register Abstract of 1831 gives this account of the Atcham Registers:-

" Atcham V. No. I. (defective and many entries illegible). Bap., 1621-1728; Bur., Marr., 1619-1729, interrupted by No. II. Bap., Bur., 1725-1775; Marr., 1725-1753. No. III., Bap., Bur., 1776-1812. No. IV., Marr., 1754-1812."

Inserted in Vol. III. is the following memorandum in the handwriting of the Rev. Henry Burton, which is evidently the draft of the return sent by him to the compilers of the Parish Register Abstract:- " Sir,- There are 4 Registers for this parish to 1813. The oldest is stated to begin in 1619, but there is no entry till 1621. This is for marriages, it appears very imperfect, some years-1625, 1626, 1629-no entry, and the entries are lost from 1630 to 1682. The register for " christnings " begins 1621, and appears rather perfect to 1646, no entry for 1646, 1647, 1648, no entry for 1650, no entry for 1653, no entry for 1655; from 1655 to 1725 the register for " christnings " appears perfect. The register for burials begins 1621, appears perfect to 1638, no entry for 1638, from 1638 to 1645 appears perfect, no entry from the end of year 1644 to 1657, from 1656 to 1725 appears perfect. The above for " weddings, christnings and burials " are all in one register. The second register for " weddings " christnings, and burials," begins 1725, and is very perfect to Lady Day, 1754, when the marriages are entered in another book, from 1725 the registers are very perfect. The last register to 1813 begins 1776."

This account is in the main accurate, except that the earliest volume extends to 1729, and that the burials commence in 1619.

Volume I. is a book of parchment leaves in a dark brown leather cover, tooled and lined, size 12 by 5 inches, and extends from 1619 to 1729. From the headings it is clear that the marriages originally came first, then the christnings, and lastly the burials. Several leaves containing fifty years of marriages, between 1630 and 1681, are lost. During the Commonwealth period, between 1644 and 1658, there are but few entries. At the end of the register is written: " Upton, Uppington, Uffington, Uckington, Unkington "; and inside the back cover is scribbled, " Rich. Butler his hand, Abr. Butler vicar of Atcham, a.d. 1679, William Butler 1681." The register is generally well written and legible, but it is in very bad condition, all the leaves being loose and liable to be lost. and it needs careful re-binding.

ATCHAM REGISTERS. xiii.

Volume II. is a thick book of parchment leaves in a brown leather cover, size 13 by 8 inches, and extends from 1725 to 1775, but marriages to 1754 only. The weddings, christnings and burials are entered each year on separate pages, and often there are but few entries on a page. The entries from 1725 to 1729 are copied from Volume I., and are not repeated here. The register is well written, and is in good condition.

Volume III. is a book of parchment leaves in a parchment cover, size 13 by 9 inches, and contains entries of burials and christnings from January, 1776, to December, 1812. The entries run on in order of date from 1776 to the end of 1779; but from 1780 the baptisms and burials are entered on separate pages each year. Only 34 leaves are used, the remaining 18 leaves are blank. The register is very well written, and is in excellent condition.

Volume IV. is a paper book containing the usual printed forms, three on each page, in a parchment cover, size 15 by 10 inches. It extends from 1754 to 1812, and contains 196 entries of marriages. At the end of the volume on the fly leaf is a list of the first 174 of these, containing the names of the parties. It is generally well kept and legible.

The officiating clergy who signed the marriage entries during these fifty-eight years are:- Vicars: Samuel Fowler, 1744-71; Thomas Houldston, 1773-4; J. Wingfield, 1775-8; Henry Burton, 1780-1812. Curates: Thomas Humphries, 1759; Thomas Haslewood, 1760; David Austin, 1762; Edward Leighton, 1775; Edward Powys, 1779; Henry Burton, 1779. Other officiating clergy are:- Corbet Browne, rector of Upton, 1759; Robert Cartwright, vicar of Wroxeter, 1763; Francis Leighton, 1775; W. Davies, 1783; Edward Kynaston, 1786 and 1794; Richard Pitchford, 1787 and 1790.

Volume V. is a paper book of printed forms, three on a page, in a parchment cover, 16 by 10 inches, and contains entries of marriages from 1813 to 1837. It is one of Eyre and Strahan's Registers. Only 22 leaves are filled, the others, all blank, are torn out. It is in very bad condition, much torn and faded from damp, and in places is scarcely legible. The officiating clergy are:- Henry Burton, vicar, 1813 to 1830, and Henry Burton (his son), vicar, 1831 to 1837. Other clergy are:George Ashby Maddock, 1821; John Geary, minister of Uffington, 1824; Henry Burton, junior, curate, 1827; T. Kinchant, curate, 1831; Edward Egremont, 1831; and Henry Beckwith, 1836.

The most important entries in the registers are those relating to the families of Harwood and Hill of Tern, Noel-Hill of Attingham, Burton of Longner, Dawes, Calcott, Russell, Whitcombe, and Grant of Berwick, Jones of Chilton, Blakeway of Cronkhill, &c. From 1679 to 1683 baptisms are entered in Latin. In 1674 is the baptism of a child of William Clempson " of the Stone Castle near Longnor."

For much of the information about the descent of the manor, I am indebted to the late Wm. Hardwicke's MSS., kindly communicated by the Rev. E. R. O. Bridgeman; also to Eyton's Antiquities, Dukes' History, some Cludde Inquisitions lent me by Miss F. C. Herbert, and other sources.

Volumes I. and IV. of the Registers were transcribed by the late Mr. William Phillips; Volumes II. and III. by Miss H. M. Auden and Miss B. A. Hughes; and Volume V. by the Rev. W. G. D. Fletcher. They were collated partly by Mr. Phillips, and partly by the Rev. W. G. D. Fletcher, who has also carried them through the press. They are now printed with the consent of the Rev. G. H. Bainbridge, the present Vicar of Atcham, as part of Mrs. Seymour's generous gift to the Society.
