The Register of
Church Stretton.

iv. CHURCH STRETTON REGISTERS.

In the autumn of 1593, Church Stretton suffered from a serious fire, but apparently the Church (unlike that of Shifnal) was untouched. A collection was made in Shrewsbury in aid of the sufferers, by order of the Court of the Marches. The money was received by William Posterne on behalf of himself and his fellow townsmen whose houses or goods had been burnt. The order for the collection is signed by William Leighton, of Plaish, and Sir Henry Townshend. of Cound, who had married a daughter of Sir Rowland Heyward, lord of the manor of Stretton.

In the Religious Census of Shropshire in 1676, Church Stratton had 431 churchpeople over the age of 16, one papist, and two nonconformists.

The church of St. Lawrence is of Saxon foundation, for the Domesday Book of 1086 mentions that the manor had a Church and a Mill. The present building dates from Norman times, when probably the earlier church was enlarged and re-built, and considerable additions were again made towards the close of the 12th century. The carved heads upon the eastern responds of the nave arcade, are worthy of notice. They resemble those on the roof corbels of the nave of Hereford Cathedral, In the 14th century the upper storey was added to the tower, and some of the church windows altered.

In 1619, Dame Jane Norton, a daughter of Judge Thomas Owen, and wife of Bonham Norton, who built the old market house of Church Stratton, rebuilt the west end of the nave, and made several gifts to the church. She was buried at Condover in 1640, and in her will desired that she should be followed to the grave by as many poor women as she was years of age, 20 being from Condover, 20 from Stottesdon, and the remainder from Church Stretton, " where I dwell." Western aisles have been added to the transepts in modern times, and a carved oak chancel screen and marble pulpit given, the one to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria and the latter in memory of the Rev. H.O. Wilson, rector from 1849 to 1879. The whole was restored and put into careful order in 1868 and later years. The carved oak in the chancel was placed there by the Rev. R.N. Pemberton.

The Parish Register Abstract of 1831 gives the following notices of the Registers:- " Church Stretton R., No. I., Bap., Bur.. Marr., 1662-1731, interrupted by No. II., Bur., 1679-1751. No. III., Bap., Bur., 1732-1812; Marr., 1732-1753. Nos. IV., V., Marr., 1754-1812."

The volumes I., II., and III., are parchment in very fair condition and decipherable all through. Volumes IV. and V. are on the ordinary paper form, only two pages of Vol. V. having been used. The abbreviations C.S., A.S., L.S., and M. are frequently used to denote Church Stretton, All Stretton, Little Stretton and Minton. Owing to the interruption of Vol. II., and the overlapping of Vol. IV., Vol. III. is divided in the printed copy, and the portion beginning in 1744 is headed by mistake Vol. VI.

viii. CHURCH STRETTON REGISTERS.

The first occurrence of the word gen., in the Bridgman family is in 1677, when John Bridgman of Minton, was buried. Mr. Thomas Bridgman, of Little Stretton, was buried in 1736. Mr. Thomas Bridgman, who in 1719 left £2 a year to the School and 30s. to the poor, is called in the Register " faber lignarius."

Mrs. Sarah Oakes. widow, was buried in 1675.

Nicholas and Anne Jackson, " generosi," had a son Nicholas baptised in 1683.

Benjamin Baldwin, who was living in the parish in 1690. is only called " gent." in 1707 at the baptism apparently of his ninth child.

In 1707, Corbetta, daughter of Thomas Cook, gen., and Sarah his wife, was baptised. Her unusual Christian name appears in 1746 as that of the wife of John Gough. In 1713, Benjamin Russell, of Enchmarsh, gen., was married early in the year to Anne Minton. and their son was baptised in the December. They were of Minton in 1716, when their daughter Anne was baptised. Mr. Edward Russell was buried in 1732.

In 1715, William Streaker, gen., had a daughter baptised and in 1720 a son. In the latter year he and his wife Anne are called " extranei," strangers.

In 1713, was baptised, Anne, daughter of Edward Appleyard, of the town and parish of Church Stretton. gen., and four more children followed. Sarah his wife was buried in 1726. and Edward Appleyard, of Hardwicke, gen., was buried five months later. In 1740, Mr. Christopher Appleyard, of Middle, was buried.

In 1714, Bernard Hammond, of Minton, gen., had a son Minton baptised. (He was married in 1760 to Elizabeth Phillips). Seven more children followed.

In 1717, Francis Bristow. gen., was buried, and in the next year Barnabas Bristow and Elizabeth Broughton were married. He is called " gen." at the baptism of their twin sons in 1719, but not in the entries of his other children. He is called Bernard in the later entries.

Thomas Waring, whose wife Jane was buried in 1711, is written gen. (or perhaps it is intended for senr.). and Thomas Waring, gen. and Alice his wife, had children baptised in 1718 and 1719. Alice died in 1720.

John Oliver, gen., occurs in 1718, and William Oliver in 1727. In 1754. Mrs. Elizabeth Oliver, a minor, was married to the Rev. Richard Wilding. The second Rev. Richard Wilding in 1778 married Mary Luther, and in 1788 his rector, the Rev. John Mainwaring, married Anne Wilding.

Edward Jones. gen., who occurs in 1722, and Thomas Poston, gen., in 1723, are given no title in the majority of entries relating to them, and the same is the case of Thomas Mills, of Church Stretton, who is called gen. in 1724.

Richard Crompton, gent, was of Church Stretton in 1724 and 1726. He was of a family connected with Longnor and Ryton in Condover parish. He married Elizabeth Hayward in 1715, and left her a widow in 1731 with a large family of young children.

Abraham Ambler, gen., was buried in 1709, and another Abraham Ambler, of Lidbury parish, was married in 1715 to Catherine Parr, of Church Stratton.

CHURCH STRETTON REGISTERS. ix.

John and Margaret Brewster, of Little Stretton, " generosi," had a daughter, Anne, baptised in 1725.

In 1732, Margaret, daughter of Mrs. Hill, of " Orson." was buried, and in 5733, Thomas, posthumous son of Ness Hill, gent., and Mary his widow, was baptised. " Orson " is a version of Alcaston, near Acton Scott. Thomas Hill, of Court of Hill (who died in 1656) married Mary, daughter and heiress of William Ness, of Alcaston, and his only son, Ness Hill, married Margaret, daughter of Samuel More, of Linley. In 1700-1, Margaret, daughter of Mr. Nesse Hill, curate, and Elizabeth his wife, was baptised at Wroxeter. Mr. Ness Hill also occurs in the register of St. Chad's, Shrewsbury.

Several members of the Corfield family are called gen. William had children baptised in 1733, 4, 7, and 9. His wife, Mrs. Margaret Corfield died in 1747, and he in 1751. Mr. Thomas Corfield had a daughter baptised in 1737, when he has no prefix given him, but at her burial the following year he has. Mr. Wm. Corfield was buried in 1751.

Mrs. Elizabeth Preston, of Church Stretton, widow, was buried in 1740.

Mr. Edward Phillips, senior, of Church Stratton, Apothecary, was buried in 1740, leaving a benefaction to the poor.

In 1738. Whitehall Harries. Esq.. of Ludlow, and Miss Anne Elizabeth Whitworth, were married, and their children were baptised at Church Stratton in succeeding years.

In 1735, the Rev. Mr. Richard Adney, of Ludlow, married Anna Maria Harris, and in 1740, the Rev. Mr. Humphrey Parry, of St. Mary's, Shrewsbury, married Mrs. Anne Tench. Mrs. Anne Parry died in 1776. leaving to St. Mary's, Shrewsbury, £20, the interest to be given to four poor widows, and £60 in accordance with the wish of her sister, Mrs. Mary Tench, the interest to be given at Christmas to eight poor householders.

Probably Anne was nearly related to Rowland Tench, Rector of Church Stretton between 1725 and 1748. He was son of Richard Tench, of Shrewsbury, and was curate of Astley from 1714 to 1728.

In 1740, Nicholas John Lyon, Esq., of Oldham, married Esther May, of Ludlow.

In 1749, is the marriage of Mr. James Metcalfe and Mrs. Mary Blakeway. The marriage in 1757 of Moses Eaton, Gentleman, and Cicely Edwards, has no witnesses given. They were later of Botfield.

There is mention in the register of two mills, Burton Mill and Quenbatch Mill.

Few trades are mentioned till 1703 (John Phillips, mercer, was buried in 1665). After 1703, a large number of yeomen are mentioned, and from 1753 to 1725 the writer of the entries gives Latin equivalents for the various callings. We have Pandocheus, an innkeeper, Faber ferrarius, a blacksmith, and Faber lignarius, a carpenter. Sutor calcearius is a shoemaker, and Sutor vestiarius a tailor. Colonus, is a farmer, chirothecarius, a glover, lapacida or lithurgus, a stone- cutter. textor a weaver, molendarius a miller, institutor a schoolmaster, and mercator ferrarius, an iron merchant. Plebeius seems to mean a labourer, or some indistinguishable calling. Strangers occur as " extranei," and a tramp is " circumcellio." Scrinarius seems to be a tanner, and purgator caminae is a sweep; doliarius a cooper; operarius an artisan; inquilinus a lodger.

x. CHURCH STRETTON REGISTERS.

In 1777, are two entries of the baptism of children of " Comedians," apparently passing through the town.

There are several unusual Christian names, including Parmenas, Felicia, Sylvanus, and Ambrose.

The first volume of the Register was copied by Mrs. R.B. Morris, the others by Miss A.M. Auden and Miss Auden, the latter of whom has collated the proofs with the original and seen the whole through the press. They are now printed by permission of the Rector, the Rev. Alexander Roberts, at the expense of Mrs. Seymour, to whose generosity the Shropshire Parish Register Society owes so much, and whose recent death it has now to deplore.
