ii Bitterley Registers.

BITTERLEY is an extensive parish in the hundred of Overs, rural deanery and archdeaconry of Ludlow, and diocese of Hereford. It comprises Middleton, where there is an ancient chapel-of-ease, restored by Sir C. H. Rouse Boughton, Bart., lord of the manor: Cleeton, now an ecclesiastical parish, with a church built in 1878: Ledwich, a Roman settlement: and the townships of Henley, Snitton, and Hilluponcott. The village is 33 miles from Shrewsbury, and 4 from Ludlow. The people describe its situation in the homely phrase "Under the Clee," which means that it lies at the base of the Titterstone, whose peak rises to a height of 1800 feet.

In July, 1827, the church was visited by David Parkes. He sketched the church and cross, writing a description of the architecture and monuments, which was published in the Gentleman's Magazine for October, 1831, and illustrated with his drawing. So many changes have happened since, that his account is copied here.

" The church of Bitterley, dedicated to St. Mary, is a handsome structure: it consists of a body, without side aisles; the chancel is divided from the body by a screen of oak, carved in open quatrefoils; at the top are foliage and grotesque ornaments. There is a gallery at the west end; the ceiling is coved, without ornament. Opposite the south door is an ancient stone font. The pulpit is of oak, finely carved."

In May, 1881, the church was re-opened, after restoration. It consists of nave, chancel, and western tower, originally of the period of Transition from Norman to Early English. Two lancet lights remain in the north wall of the chancel. One is blocked up, and the other, like those in the tower, has a round scoinson arch. The other windows are in the Decorated style. The eastern one is of four lights, but like that of two lights, in the north wall of the chancel, has lost its tracery. The doorway and the fine tower arch have been restored. The head of the priest's door is a plain block of stone, corbelled outside. In the north wall of the chancel is an arched recess, supposed by some to be an Easter sepulchre, but more probably a tomb. Under the arch is a loose stone, ornamented with a cross, fleur de lys, and trefoils. The open timber roofs are modern, but across the entrance to the chancel is a beam with some tracery, the remains of a Perpendicular screen. The pulpit is a very good Jacobean one. The lectern and two chairs are of the same style. The Communion table is of massive oak, and probably replaced the stone altar. In the wall, at its south end, is the fine alabaster monument of " Tymothye Lvcye of Middleto," who died in 1616, and was grandson of the celebrated "Justice Shallow." His kneeling effigy is in armour, with ruff around neck. The upper portion of the tower, which was modern, with battlements, is now surmounted by a sort of undeveloped broach spire. In the basement, amongst the fragments of fine monuments, is a long, narrow, oaken chest,

in two divisions, iron-bound, with five staples and three locks. It still contains the pewter flagon, which was found in it, with a paten, and a worm-eaten alms box, when it was opened some years ago by the rector, and Sir C. H. Rouse Boughton. The font is a very fine one, ornamented with a Norman arcade of 12th Century work, being older than any part of the existing church. The porch is modern, and chiefly of timber.

The famous cross has happily escaped " restoration," but it was evidently much more perfect when Mr. Parkes saw it, for he wrote:-" On the top are tabernacled niches; that on the north side contains the Virgin and infant Christ: the west side the Crucifixion: the east and south sides are nearly obliterated." Alfred Rimmer describes it in his Ancient Stone Crosses of England, 1875, and says:-" Perhaps it would be difficult to find a better example of a tall tabernacle-cross in England." The slender and graceful octagonal shaft rises from a square base, which stands upon three hexagonal steps, the whole having many features of great delicacy and beauty. Its date is undecided, but it probably belongs to the Decorated period.

The Register is thus described in the Parish Register Abstract, 1831:- " Bitterley R. Nos. I.-III., Bap., Bur., 1657-1799, Marr. 1657-1753, interrupted by Nos. IV., V., Bap., Bur., 1798-1812. Nos. VI., VII., Marr., 1754-1812."

The record, 1658-1812, is in seven well preserved volumes, unmutilated, except in one place. Unlike its neighbour at Stanton Lacy, its regular course suffered no interruption from the Civil War, and nearly all the writing is quite legible

Volume I. is a Latin Register of the baptisms, burials, and marriages, 1658-1716. It has parchment leaves, bound in parchment, measuring 14 inches by 6.

Vol. II. continues the record down to 1736, and is in all respects similar, except its measure, which is 13 inches by 7.

Vol. III. is written in English, and contains baptisms and burials to 1798. The marriages cease in 1754. It measures 14 inches by 7½ and has parchment leaves bound in rough calf.

Vol. IV. is written on ruled paper, with a printed title-page, and is bound in parchment. Its size is 14½ inches by 9½. It contains the marriages 1754-1798.

Vols. V., VI., and VII. are half bound in leather, and measure 15 inches by 9½ each. The entries are all made on printed forms. No. 5 is " A Register Book for Marriages ": No. 6, a " Register Book for Births and Christenings ": and No. 7, a " Register Book for Burials." They are officially published, and No. 6 is of the same description as Volume 2 of the Uppington Register. They all begin in 1799, and are carried down to 1812.

iv BITTERLEY REGISTERS

Amongst the aged parishioners are no fewer than ten centenarians, as follows; but as seven of the ten occur within eleven years they are probably not authentic.

Mary Smith, buried 20 May, 1708, aged 100.
Margaret Williams, " 21 Jan., 1709, " 100.
Elizabeth Tomkis, " 20 June, 1714, " 100.
Edward Langford, " 20 Nov., 1714, " 101.
Humphry Brampton. " 8 Jan., 1717, " 100.
Alice Davies, " 11 Mar., 1719, " 100.
Anna Preece, " 8 April, 1719, " 100.
Lucy Wadeley, " 27 June, 1756, " upwards of 100.
John Anthony, " 10 Mar., 1794, " 104.
Ann Morgan, " 5 Mar., 1809, " 102.

Uncommon Christian names are Rhesa and Jarret, for men; Palarina, Darkey, Annorah, and Millonia, for females. The local saint, Milborough, is a favourite with the latter.

The Register contains very little information about the Rectors, whose names from 1680, taken from the Register with some notices, are annexed.

1658. John Lydall, qu. M.A. St. Edmund Hall, Oxford and Canon of Hereford, 1660; his will dated 6 Oct., 1679.
1680-1703. Wm. Smith, buried 22 April, 1703.
1703-1736. Benjamin Marston, of St. Alban Hall, Oxford; buried 3 Dec., 1736, aged 69.
1737-1739. Henry Baldwyn, of Christ Church, Oxford.
1740. Thos. Roche. He became Rector of Ludlow in 1762, and was buried at Bitterley 21 Oct., 1803, aged 86.

1899. John Richard Burton, B.A. London University; Rector of Dowles 1876-85; and Head Master of the Grammar School, Kidderminster, 1885-99.

The frequency of the styles " armiger " and " generosus " displays the unusually large number of gentle families seated in the parish. Among them were Kettlebys, Powyses, Sheppards, Pardoes, Walcots, Littletons, Cressets, Botevyles, and Achleys.

The Shropshire Parish Register Society is indebted to Sir C. H. Rouse Boughton, Bart., for providing for the publication of this Register, as well as for that of Stanton Lacy, The transcript was made by Mr. R. E. Davies, who also 1evised the proofs. Grateful acknowledgments are due to the Rector, the Rev. J. R. Burton, for kindly permitting the Register to be printed: also to the Rev. C. H. Drinkwater and William Phillips, Esq., F.L.S., for help in collating the copy with the original.
