Chelmarsh Registers. iii

CHELMARSH is a parish in the diocese of Hereford, rural deanery of Bridgnorth, and hundred of Stottesdon, and is situated between 3 and 4 miles south of Bridgnorth. Its population in 1891 was 425, including the hamlets of Sutton and Hampton. In 1676 there were 220 inhabitants over the age of 16, all Church people. This number, which probably represented a little less than half the whole population, seems to show that the population has remained nearly stationary in the last 200 years. The area of the parish is 3,259 acres.

Chelmarsh was an important manor of 5 hides in 1086. In Saxon times it had belonged to Earl Edwin, and was worth 6 per annum. During the troubles of the Conquest it was laid waste, and in 1086, when it was held under Earl Roger de Montgomery by Ralph de Mortimer, it was valued at 2 yearly. The population at that date consisted of 6 serfs, 13 villeins, and 5 bordars.

The manor was held by the Mortimers till the 15th century, the elder branch, Barons of Wigmore, enfeoffing here a younger branch known as Mortimers of Chelmarsh. In 1255, Hugh de Mortimer was Lord of Chelmarsh, but Roger de Mortimer of Wigmore held 4 1/2 virgates of land, the Capital Messuage (ie., " Manor-house "), three mills and a weir. In 1266, the King allowed the Mortimers freedom from all payment in their manors of Chelmarsh and Clunbury of Hundred dues and other moneys paid to the King.

The last Mortimers of Chelmarsh were William, an imbecile, and his brother Hugh, who was killed in the battle of Shrewsbury in 1403. In 1414, Roger Mortimer, Earl of March, was said to hold a knight's fee in Chelmarsh, and in 1428-9 Sir Humphrey Stafford occurs in connection with the manor. In 1545, Henry VIII. granted the manor of Chelmarsh to Richard Jervois, citizen and alderman of London; and in 1628, Sir Thomas Jervois, Sheriff of Shropshire in 1613, and Lucy his wife, sold it to Sir William Whitmore of Apley. William N. Marcey. Esq., of Bewdley, is the present lord of the manor. The register shows the existence in the 16th and 17th centuries of several prosperous yeoman families holding land in the manor.

The Parish Register Abstract, 1831, contains this account of the Chelmarsh Registers:- " Chelmarsh V. Nos. I. II. (parchment), Bap. Bur. Mar. 1558-1812."

The Chelmarsh Registers to 1812 are contained in three books, of which the earlier one is composed of originally two or three sets of parchment leaves bound together in one volume in the last century. The first pages have disappeared, as the entries now begin abruptly, and there is no sigu of a title or heading of any kind. The books are in good condition and carefully kept, but show several erasures, and two undoubted cases of interpolation, a marriage in 1682, and a christening in 1684.

iv CHELMARSH REGISTERS.

The most important families named in the Registers are these:- Acton (Thomas Acton, Vicar from 1598 to 1616, was a son of William Acton, of Aldenham), Nichols (Thomas Nichols was presentad to the living in 1616, by John Nichols), and Wall, a younger branch of those of Faintree, whose pedigree is given in the Heralds' Visitation of 1623. The title of " Mr." or "Gentleman" occurs also in connection with the names of Detton, Otley of the Hay, Sparry, Moseley, Beach, Cocks, Dallow, Walter, Orton, Higgs, and Jasper. The heiress of the Actons of Buildwas, married a Moseley of Maer, Co. Staffs.

The church, dedicated to St. Peter, consists of a continuous nave and chancel with a north aisle of the same length, west tower, and south porch. The west wall of the nave and a considerable part of the aisle are Norman, but there is clear proof that the church was almost entirely rebuilt in 1345. It is very highly finished, and of great interest. The tower was built in 1710. A large sum of money (2,500) has been recently spent on the church and its fittings, and it is a fine and well cared for building.

By this restoration, commenced in 1887 and completed in 1899, the whole church has been restored to what is believed to be its original condition when rebuilt in 1345; the beautiful chancel screen has been entirely reconstructed, and the south porch once more put in its original place, that and the choir stalls and other parts of the church being carved in oak by the carving class, consisting of men and boys of the parish, working under the Vicar.

In 1716, collections were made by Brief, for Chelmarsh and Ryton Co. Salop, but whether for the churches or for private individuals is not specified.

There is a record of heraldry existing here in 1699, consisting of coats-of-arms of the Mortimers of Wigmore, and those of Chelmarsh.

The first mention of the church is in 1179, when Hugh de Mortimer gave the advowson to the Canons of Wigmore. In 1379, Edmund de Mortimer also granted to the Canons his property at Chelmarsh called Nether-court. In 1345, Hugh de Mortimer of Chelmarsh founded a chantry dedicated to St. James in the church, and endowed it with a house and a rent of 3 2s. 4d., for a chaplain to perform daily service in the chapel for the soul of the founder.

The Abbey of Wigmore retained the advowson of Chelmarsh till the Dissolution. In 1763 Sir John Sebright was patron; and the patronage still remains in his family.

The Vicars and Curates of Chelmarsh are as follows:-

Nicholas, Vicar (mentioned in an undated deed).
1320. Sir William, Perpetual Vicar, occurs.
1349. John de Northfield (instituted Sept. 3rd).
1349. Sir Roger de la Hulle de Dylne (presented Dec, 1st, but not instituted).

[* NOTE.- These entries of a marriage and a baptism have been
interpolated in another hand, and apparently advantage taken of the very
indistinct state of the original entries to write over them. The
register book is furnished with a copy from the Diocesan Registry at
Hereford of the entries for 1682 and 1684, in which the interpolated
entries do not appear. The copy gives us the additional facts that Joyce
White's mother was dead, that Catherine Goodman's child was baptised on
Jan. 25, and that she was a " dumb, simple wench." It has no mention of
John Richards, but gives on March 5 the burial of William, s. of William
and Mary Cumber, and the following day that of John, s. of John and
Elizabeth Croft. In 1684, the interpolation has obliterated the first
entry of that year, which according to the Diocesan Register was that of
the baptism on Mar. 25, of Solomon, s. of Thomas and Helianor Croppe,
and in the next entry the wedding of Thomas Cowell and Mary Evans, only
the bride's name remains legible.

The copy from the diocesan Registry is attested by Richard Hayes, vicar,
and by John Croft and Thomas Baylis, churchwardens in 1683, and Tho.
Nicholls and Thomas Croft, wardens in 1685.]
