Donington Registers.

DONINGTON is a scattered parish in the hundred of Brimstree, with an area of 2,641 acres, and a population in 1891 of 379. In this number are not included the inhabitants of Boscobel, which is extra- parochial. In the early part of the 11th century the manor seems to have belonged to Wulfgate, of Donington, whose will is still preserved. Possibly his residence was situated on the earthwork, still in excellent preservation, at Humphreston, called the "Moat Bank". Domesday Book records that in 1086 "the Earl Roger de Montgomery himself holds Donitone. Earl Edwin held it in the time of King Edward". From the Norman Earl it passed to his eldest son, the cruel Robert, Earl de Belesme, on whose rebellion in 1102, Henry I. granted it to Richard de Belmeis, Bishop of London, 1108 to 1127. In the Belmeis family the manor remained for a considerable time, being for long held by a collateral branch under the Lords of Tong, the elder house. Possibly Beamish Hall, in Albrighton parish, was the seat of the Belmeis of Donington. From them it passed to the De Wynnesburys, who were succeeded in the 15th century by the De Humphrestons, and from them it went, by marriage, to the Corbets of Moreton Corbet. The last were strong royalists, and on the outbreak of the Civil war, garrisoned their moated hall at Humphreston, where recently, in making alterations in the grounds, several iron cannon balls were found. Sir Richard Corbet, Knt., of Humphreston, was one of those who, in 1642, signed "the Ingagement and Resolution of the Principal Gentlemen of the County of Salop, for the Raising and Maintayning of Forces at their own Charge, for the Defence of His Majestie". When the Royal cause was lost, Major Edmund Waring, - a staunch Parliamentarian (and an Anabaptist, as we learn from the Entries of the births, and not the baptisms of his children in the Register), obtained the property, either by sequestration, or purchase when the Corbets were heavily fined for their loyalty by the Parliament. Major Waring, however, met with a sad end. He was drowned in what was thenceforth known as "Mund's Hole," when returning from a carousal at Albrighton. From the Warings, Humphreston passed to the Colmores, and Donington, through the Lees of Langley, to the Slaneys, and then to the Bishtons. Both estates were re-united when purchased by George Jones, grandfather of Daniel Jones, of Kilsall, the present Lord of the Manor of Donington, and of H.F.J. Vaughan, of Humphreston (whose ancient hall possessed its

*Probably nephew of the "Edmund Waring of Albrighton, gent, and Mary his wife", mentioned in the Albrighton Register in 1606, 1607, and 1808. There is a mural tablet to the Major in Donington Church.

own chapel, and formed the chief residence in the pariah, till destroyed in the Civil Wars, and whence came Roger de Humphreston, an early Rector.)

Neachley (where was the grange farm of the Convent of White Ladies), Kilsall (spoken of in Wulfgate's will as Cylleshale), and Shackerley, were all members of the Manor of Donington, and each of them had its under-tenants. At the last (formerly always Shackerlawe), in the Mill Meadow, is a Saxon earthwork or mound, still locally called the "Thieves' Den", a curious corroboration of the derivation of the word Shackerley from A.S. Sceacre, a robber, and Maw, a mound, the Robbers' Mound. In 1676, the Religious census gives the population of Donington, over the age of 16, as 110 Conformists, 5 Papists, and 1 Nonconformist. Calamy mentions George Reves, afterwards at Take, as Puritan Minister here.

The Church at Donington is dedicated to St. Cuthbert, and was founded by Roger de Montgomery, and bestowed on Shrewsbury Abbey. In 1256, the Jurors of the Brimstree Hundred reported that Simon, Parson of Dunyton, "had been slain by unknown malefactors, who had also burnt his house, and the vills of Dunyton and Tonge had made no pursuit after the assassins". The old Tower, which collapsed on Lady Day, 1879, belonged to two periods, the lower part and next storey being circa 1200; the upper part, or belfry, circa 1500. The new Tower, rebuilt in 1880, is an exact reproduction, with two exceptions - it has no pinnacles on the four corners (added to the old circa 1700), and is about three or four feet higher. The Chancel is circa 1280 to 1300. The Nave was apparently re-built in 1635, for on some of the corbels that date is carved, and a beam bears the inscription "Thomas Twigg, Carpenter, 1635". The North Aisle was built, and two Galleries removed when the Church was thoroughly restored, 1878-9.

There is a spring and shallow stone well on glebe land not far from the Church, which, from time immemorial, has been called "St. Cuthbert's Well," and which has always been regarded as containing properties beneficial to weak eyes.

The parish consists of a number of small hamlets originally surrounding the old common lands (which were enclosed in 1781). This is probably the reason why the Church was built so close to that of Albrighton. We see from the murder of the Rector in 1256, that the district was very insecure, and we know that in King Edward the first's reign (1272-1307) a Charter was granted to Albrighton making it a free borough and corporation, "because it adjoined to Staffordshire on the east, south, and west parts, and was remote from Shrewsbury, and three royal highways led out of Staffordshire through the said town, by reason whereof felons and other malefactors within Staffordshire escaped out of that county into the precincts of Albrighton, which often happened in default of prosecuting such delinquents, and the due execution of the laws in that angle of

Shropshire where no justices of peace (to whose office the case thereof belonged) were residing, whereby malefactors were multiplied and the King's faithful subjects aggrieved". The Church was therefore for the safety of its officials and property, built in that part of the parish which was nearest to a large centre of population.

With reference to the position of the various inhabitants of Donington, the owners of Humphreston are always designated "Esquire", e.g. William Humfreyson (1559), Robert Corbet (1622), Vincent Corbet (1647), Edmund Waring (1653), and William Colmore (1679); Thomas Grey (1652) is also thus distinguished. The following are styled "Mr." or "gent.," - Thomas Cowper (1562), Ferrars Fowke (1654), and the families of Brigin, Northall, Twigg, Jellicorse, and Yates; the four last being also sometimes called "yeomen", which latter designation is borne by the Stauntons of Shakerley, the Pytts of Donington, the Bishtons of Kilsall (1593), the Whistons of Kilsall (1605), and the Walfords.

The Parish Register Abstract, 1831, contains this account of the Donington Parish Registers:- "Donington R. No. I., Bap., Bur., Mar., 1556-1691, interrupted by No. II, Bap., Bur., 1689-1796, Mar. 1689-1753. No. III., Bap., Bur., 1797-1812. No. IV., Mar. 1756-1812".

The Registers are in excellent condition. The early one is legible throughout, and is marked periodically with B.V. at the Bishop's Visitations. The second one is in slightly dilapidated binding, but is otherwise in good order. The entries of Burials from 1690 to 1795, are marked with "Affidavit returned", referring to the Act for Burying in Woollen, and a note of the duty payable on all entries is marked in the margin. The entries of Private Baptisms are almost invariably completed by the addition of the date of the reception of the child into the Church. The Marriage Register Book from 1756 till 1812, contains also the Banns from 1756 till 1847. Names of several Clergy appear as giving out Banns which do not occur in the Register of Marriages. In 1803, Wm. Robinson, Clerk; in the same year T. Lawrence, Curate. In 1805, M. Kemsey. Curate. In 1807, Wm. Tyndall, Curate, and again in 1810 and 1811, from which time till 1847 occurs the signature of Joseph Dale.

The Registers were transcribed (by the kind permission of the Rector, the Rev. W.A. Sheringham) by Miss Auden, with the assistance of Miss Helen Briscoe, of Neach Hill, who also collated the proof sheets, as they passed through the press, with the original Registers.

A list of the Rectors of Donington will be found at the end of the Transcript.
