The Register of
Boningale.

Boningale Registers.

The Parish Register Abstract, 1831, gives this account of the Boningale Registers:- "Bonninghall P.C. No. I- Bap., Bur., 1698-1812; Marr., 1698-1750. No. II.- Marr., 1758-1812. No Marriages solemnized, 1750-1758".

The earliest register is a parchment book of 21 leaves, size, 18 by 8 inches, in a leather cover, and is in good condition. The second register is the usual printed form, but contains only space for 50 Marriages; it extends from 1758 to 1803. There is another Register for Marriages, which contains only one entry, in 1812.

Boningale is a township and small scattered parish in the Diocese of Lichfield, Rural Deanery of Shifnal, and Hundred of Brimstree. It lies on the road from Shrewsbury to Birmingham, about a mile from the village of Albrighton. Its area is 1,003 acres, and the population in 1891 was 165. It formerly belonged to the De Bolinghales, a family of good though not of Knightly rank. In the 12th century the name of Henry de Bolynghale is found as its Lord. Hugh de Bolynghale was the owner 1203 to 1228, and another Hugh 1250-1275. In 1277, however, either this Hugh or his son, also Hugh de Bolynghale, gave all his lands to Lilleshall Abbey, whose monks retained an interest in the property till the Dissolution of Religious Houses in 1538. The advowson, however, being of small value, became attached to the parish of Stockton, though entirely separated from it by 2 intervening parishes, and some 5 miles away. In Pope Nicholas' Taxation of 1291 Boningale is mentioned as a Chapelry of Stockton, and in Henry VIII's Valor Ecclesiasticus of 1534, the Chapel of Bonynghal in the Deanery of Newport is included in the return made by the Rector of Stockton.

Jonathan Wild, the notorious highwayman, who was executed at Tyburn in 1726, was born at Boningale in 1682.

Lea Hall, * a good specimen of 16th century brick manor house with stone mullioned windows and twisted chimneys, is said to have been occupied by a garrison during the Civil War in order to guard the road between Shrewsbury and Birmingham. There are some fine half-timbered houses close to the Church, and the meadow between it and the highroad is called the Lady's Close. In the Churchyard are a very old yew tree, and a sundial with the motto: "Sine Sole Sileo". On the outside of the Church under the East window is carved W. Wakelin, 1778.

* In 1621 Nicholas Waring is described as of "Lea Hall", and so is his grandson, who was father of Edmund Waring, of Albrighton, and great grandfather of Major Edmund Waring, of Humphreston, Sheriff of Shropshire, and M.P. for Bridgnorth.

The Church is dedicated to St. Chad, and in the Shingled Spire are three bells, concerning one of which there is a local legend to the following purport:- "Formerly there were no bells at Boningale, but the inhabitants hearing that three new ones were on their way from Birmingham to Donington, intercepted one of them on its way through the village and hung it in their own steeple, where it has remained ever since".

The Church was restored and the South aisle added in 1861 at a cost of 1,000. Further improvements took place in 1890 when the nave was re-tiled, and the inside old carved oak of the roof repaired, and re-backed with new oak panelling. In 1891 the Treble bell was re-cast, and the three bells re-fixed with new fittings by Taylor & Co. Finally, in 1894. a new Porch was added. In the Chancel is a marble tablet to the Rev. William Tindall, who was Curate for 25 years, and in the Vestry is another, erected by her three sons, to Mrs. Elizabeth Robinson, eldest daughter of Mr. John Wood, of Whiston, and relict of Mr. John Robinson, Solicitor of Dudley; she died March 29, 1843, in her 72nd year. In the Vestry in an old oak parish Chest. There is no Vicarage House, Boningale being, till the death of the Rev. Charles B.C. Whitmore in 1856, a Chapelry belonging to the parish of Stockton, the Rectors of Stockton were therefore also Rectors of Boningale. The result was that (as Hardwick in his MS. Shropshire Collections remarks), after the death of Mr. Littleford in 1714, for over 125 years this neglected parish had no resident clergyman, either as Curate or Rector. Before the separation of the parishes in 1857, the Rectors of Stockton with Boningale do not seem to have ever taken duty at Boningale, with the exception of the Rev. Charles Whitmore, who, having taken offence at something which happened at Stockton, obtained a Curate to do the duty there, and officiated himself at Boningale from June, 1833 to Oct., 1851, to avoid doing so at Stockton. The following names of officiating Ministers occur in the Registers.
