Eaton Constantine Registers.

EATON CONSTANTINE is a parish and village, situate about seven miles south-east from Shrewsbury and five miles south-west from Wellington, in the rural deanery of Wrockwardine, archdeaconry of Salop, diocese of Lichfield, and hundred of South Bradford. Its area is 945 acres in the civil parish, and 874 in the ecclesiastical; and its population in 1801 was 204; in 1831, 244; in 1891, 232; and in 1901, 201. At the Domesday Survey, Etune was part of the possessions of Earl Roger de Montgomery, and was held under him by Rainald the Sheriff. It was a manor of two hides. In demesne were two teams; and 4 serfs, 2 ancillae 1 villain and 5 boors had another team, and still there was room for two more teams. There was a fishery in the river Severn, and a small wood.

The family of Fitz-Alan succeeded to the possessions of Rainald the Sheriff; under them it was held (as likewise was Oldbury), by the family of Costentin or Constantine, and was known hereafter as Eaton Constantine. In 1165, Helyas de Constantine, who was head of the family, held it by service of half a knight's fee. In 1215, Thomas de Constantine took the side of John Fitz-Alan in his rebellion against King John, in consequence of which his lands were forfeited and granted to John fitz Philip, but in 1217 he had returned to his allegiance, and his lands were restored to him. By a fine levied in 1269 the manor was conceded to Thomas de Constantine for his life, with remainder to Adam de Montgomery and Isabella de Constantine, his wife, and the heirs of Adam. Adam de Montgomery died in 1290. In 1316, William de Leighton occurs as lord of Eaton Constantine. In 1331, one Maculine is stated to be lord. In 1350, Sir Walter de Hopton was lord. In 1462, Walter Hopton, Esq., died seized of the manor. The Thornhill family also had some interest in the manor. Richard Thornhull occurs 1393. In 1397-8, amongst the estates of Richard, Earl of Arundel, forfeited to the Crown, was half a knight's fee in Eaton Constantine held by William Thornhull. William de Thornhull also occurs in 1403. In the 15th century the manor belonged to the Corbet family. In 1475, Sir Richard Corbet, knight, was the lord; he was going to cross the sea with the King, and had had licence on 6th Oct., 1473, to enfeoff Thomas Monington and others of his manors, amongst others Eaton Constantine.

In the 17th century the manor passed to the Newports, with whom it remained till 1735, when the 3rd Earl of Bradford left it in trust for John Newport, alias Harrison. On his death in 1783, it came to Sir William Johnstone, in right of his wife Frances Pulteney, cousin of the Earl of Bath. He took the name of Pulteney, and died in 1805, when the manor passed to William Henry Vane, 3rd Earl of Darlington, who was created in 1833 Duke of Cleveland. On the death of the 4th Duke in 1891, it came to Lord Barnard, who is now lord of the manor and chief land-owner.

iv. EATON CONSTANTINE REGISTERS.

Three persons were assessed to the Subsidy of 1327, in respect of their lands at Etone, viz., William le Spencer, xviijd.; William de Harleye, ijs.; Richard Rotar', xiiijd.

Eaton Constantine is associated with the name of Richard Baxter. the celebrated Nonconformist divine and author of the Saint's Rest, who, though born at Rowton in 1615, lived here for some time from 1625 onwards at his father's house, a black and white building, which is still standing. His father was a freeholder, and resided here. Baxter is traditionally said to have played upon the village green. Castle Hill and the Stanway (a field on the Wroxeter side of the parish) are names worthy of note; the latter gaining interest from the site of Roman occupation at Wroxeter.

There are two charities in the parish. A small sum arising from the Poor's Stock is distributed annually amongst widows. The five "most necessitous men in the parish" receive the interest on a sum of money left by William Warham, whose will was proved on the 3rd Septr., 1816. Calamy states that George Moxon, the ejected Minister of Radwinter, in Essex, lived and died here at the house of his brother-in-law, Sheriff Sute, but the early register, beginning in 1684, has no reference to either name.

The population has grown, although there is a tendency to decrease in later years. According to the Religious Census in 1676 there were "75 Conformists, no Papists, 4 Nonconformists", which gives a population of about 150. The increase to nearly 300 in the middle of the last century was due, to a great extent, to the mines in the locality. The population has now fallen again to what it was a hundred years ago. The Church, which is dedicated to St. Mary (according to Eyton) was originally a chapelry of Leighton, which always maintained the right of burial over Eaton Constantine. Its foundation was of considerable antiquity, as appears from its Norman font and from its early incumbents. The Taxation of Pope Nicholas in 1291 values it at thirty shillings. In 1341 it was rated at ten shillings only, because it was small and poor, and there had been a murrain among the sheep. In 1534-5 the "free chapel" of Eaton Constantine was worth only 1 6s. 2d. per annum. Though styled a "free chapel" it early became a rectory.

The old church was taken down and the present church erected in 1847-8 at a cost of 775. It consists of nave, chancel with north vestry, south porch, and western bell-gable. The windows are mostly lancets. The. font dates from the middle of the 12th century; it is circular, its inner diameter being about 20 inches. In two chairs in the chancel some late 15th century panels with quatrefoils, fleurs-de-lis, &c., have been let in. The Church Goods Return of 3 Edward VI. has this:- "Chapel of Yeton Constantyne. ij smale bell' of a coorde and oone Chaleys wthe patten of sylver". The Return of 4th May, 7 Edward VI., gives Two small bells, a chalice of silver with the paten. Thomas Wryght and Thomas Rocke were churchwardens.

In 1740 and 1752 there were two bells. In 1814 there was a turret with one bell. In 1893 the old bell, which had no inscription, was recast by Taylor of Loughborough, and put up in an open gable-cot.

The Burial ground was opened in 1850. Prior to that year all interments took place at Leighton.

Amongst the Communion plate are a tankard, almsdish and paten of pewter, and a silver chalice. The last was a domestic cup of 1601-2, and bears the initials MS stamped in dots, with possibly an emblem or letter, defaced, over them.

The patronage of the vestry was anciently vested in the Constantines. In 1350, Sir Walter de Hopton presented; in 1393, Richard Thornhull and Florence his wife; in 1403, William Thornehull. In 1673, the Bishop presented by lapse. In 1679, Francis, Viscount Newport presented, and in 1689 and 1699, Richard Newport, Esq. In 1739, Anne Smith presented, as the guardian of John Newport, Esq., to whom Henry, 3rd Earl of Bradford had left his property in trust. William, Earl of Bath occurs as patron in 1749 and 1751; and in 1781 John Newport, Esq., presented. He died two years later, and the Earl of Bath in 1805, when the patronage passed to the Vanes. The 1st Duke of Cleveland presented in 1823 and 1832, and the 4th Duke in 1889, on whose death in 1891 the patronage passed to Lord Barnard, the present patron, who presented to the living in 1912.

vi. EATON CONSTANTINE REGISTERS.

The Parish Register Abstract of 1831 gives this information about the Registers:-

"Eaton Constantine R. Nos. I., II. Registers 1684-1812. No. III., Marriages 1780-1811. No burial ground; burials at Leighton".

The Salop County Council's Return of "Shropshire Parish Documents", 1903, has this:-

"General Register, 1684-1768. Register containing:- Baptisms, 1740-1812; Marriages, 1772-1796. Register of Marriages, 1780-1811".

This last account is not strictly accurate. Volume I. is a parchment book, measuring 9 1/2 inches by 6 inches, and contains entries of baptisms and marriages from 1684 to 1740, with one entry of 1768, and inside the cover one entry of 1693 and three undated entries. Volume II. is also a parchment book; it measures 12 inches by 6 1/4 inches, and begins in 1740, and it contains marriages to 1796 and baptisms to 1812. Volume III. contains entries of marriages from 1780 to 1811. The volumes are in good condition, and have been carefully kept. There are no entries of burials in these Registers, as the parishioners of Eaton Constantine were formerly interred at Leighton.

Amongst the peculiarities in the Christian names that occur in the Registers are double Christian names in 1764 and 1765, Flora as a man's name, Ruja and Sidonia.

It only remains to add that the Registers were transcribed by Mr. T.R. Horton, and have been collated, and the proofs as they passed through the press compared with the original Registers, by the present Rector, by whose permission they are now printed. Much of this introduction is due to the researches of the Rev. W.G.D. Fletcher.
