The Register of
Fitz.

Fitz Registers.

Fitz, with the townships of Grafton and Mytton, is in the Hundred of Pimhill, Rural Deanery of Shrewsbury, and Diocese of Lichfield. Its area is 1,512 acres, and the present population 262, the increase shewn in the Census return for 1891 being merely temporary. The Parish Register Abstract, published in 1831, contains the following account of the Fitz Registers:- "Fitz R. Nos. I. II. Registers 1559-1812". This is not correct, as there are three books containing registers prior to 1812.

No. I. measures 14 inches by 5 1/2 inches, consists of sixty-eight parchment and two paper leaves bound in parchment covers, and is in very fair preservation. It contains entries of Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, from 1559 to 1774. Those dating from 1559 to 1609 are copied from an older "paper booke" no longer existent.

No. II. measures 15 1/4 inches by 6 1/2 inches, and consists of 133 paper leaves (of which only fourteen have been used), bound in parchment covers. It contains entries of Baptisms, Marriages and Burials from 1774 to 1812.

No. III. is the usual printed form of Marriage Register. It is a paper book in a parchment cover, and contains entries of Marriages from 1754 to 1812. Many of these entries are to be found in shortened form in No. II. On the fly-leaf is written:- "Marriage Book for the Parish of Fitz, bought in the year 1754, John Drury and John Blakeway, Churchwardens".

Fitz, or Fittes, sometimes found written Fitteshoe, and, in the charter of Henry I. to Shrewsbury Abbey, Phitesoth, is in Domesday called Witesot. Before the Norman Conquest it belonged to a Saxon freeman named Hunnith, but was surrendered by him to a Norman Knight, Picot

de Sai, who held it under Earl Roger. The neighbouring lands of Mytton were at that time held by the Canons of St. Mary's, Shrewsbury, by whom, probably, the first Church at Fitz was built. Picot de Sai bestowed part of his tithes of the lordship of Fitz on Shrewsbury Abbey, which, however, does not seem to have affected the patronage of the Church, for, in the thirteenth century, Robert de Girros, who then held Fitz under the Fitz Alans, gave to Haughmond Abbey "The Chapel of Fitteshoe", saving a "yearly due" of 22s. which was owing therefrom to St. Mary's. This led to litigation at Westminster between the College of St. Mary and the Abbot of Haughmond, and about the year 1253 a plea of Quo Warranto was tried, the Memorandum of which runs thus:- "Henry, Abbot of Salop, hath been attached to give answer to the King in this plea, viz., as to wherefore, prejudicing the King and his free Chapel of St. Mary, Salop (which chapel is so exempted that neither the Pope, nor any judge ecclesiastic has jurisdiction therein), he [the Abbot] had exercised a jurisdiction in the Chapel of Fytteshoe". After some delay, the chapel was surrendered by Robert de Acton, who held it of the Abbot; but the dispute went on, and, at last, the question was referred to "wager of battle". In this the Abbot's champion was victorious, and by a writ dated October 18th, 1256, the Bishop was ordered by the King to admit the Abbot's nominee as Rector. This seems to have settled the question as to the advowson, for, in 1315, the Abbot presented Robert de Preston as Rector, his right being unquestioned.

After the Dissolution of the Monasteries the first appointment as Rector of Fitz was that of Sir Richard Wylde (or Wild), which was made in 1548 by Thos: Somerfield of Staunton, and John Adney of Acton, assigns of Thos: Newnys, clk.; Ri: Prowde and Js: Ryland, assigns vice the late Abbot, etc. Later, all presentations to the living of Fitz were made by the Crown, till, in

FITZ REGISTERS. v

1887, the patronage passed, by exchange, to the Bishop of Lichfield, who, in 1890, transferred it, again in exchange, to the present patron, Sir Offley Wakeman, Bart.

Information about the early history of Fitz may be found in Eyton's Antiquities of Shropshire, vol. x, and in Blakeway's MSS. in the Bodleian Library. Blakeway's account of Fitz is printed in "Shropshire Notes and Queries", ii, 135-140. The early incumbents were:-

12S3. Richard de Lynton (ejected).
1254. Robert de Acton (intruded).
1256. Richard de Lynton (reinstated).
1257. William de Kilkenny.
1267. Robert, Parson of Fittes.
[?] Richard de Golden, d. 1315.
1315. Robert de Preston, acolyte, d 1334.
1334. Sir John Mountsorrell, d. 1343.
1343. Hugh de Greyby.
[?] David, son of Gregory de Pola, exchanged 1347 with
1347. John Trochard, late Rector of Llanwidelan.
1349. Thomas Banastre of Yorton.
1369. John de Harlescote.
1377. Robert de Preston.
[?] John de Morton, Canon of Haughmond, resigned.
1398. Richard Payn, clericus in prima tonsura, resigned.
1398. Roger Ive, of Leaton, resigned.
1426. John de Morton, resigned.
1441. Sir John Leche, resigned.
1471. Sir Uriann Seymper, chaplain.
[?] Walter Whoton, resigned.
1498. Master - Spoulsbury.
[?] Sir Adam Coyde, d. 1504.
1504. Hugh Gyles, d. 1548.

Since 1559, the date at which the Registers begin, the incumbents have been:-

Sir Richard Wylde, who paid his Composition fees on March 22nd, 1548, and whose burial entry occurs in the Register, February 4th, 1577.

Robert Willton, who is not mentioned in the Fitz Register, but of whom the Register at the Public Record Office

vi FITZ REGISTERS.

gives, "Item, xii° die Aprilis, Anno Domini, 1578, ad Ecclesiam parochialem de Fitte in Comitatu predicto vacantem admissus fuit Robertus Willton, clericus".

Gedeon Hancocks, appointed 1602. In "An Elizabethan Clergy List" he is referred to as of "no degree, a preacher in his own cure". Buried 26th August, 1616.

Thomas Clerke, B.D., Fellow of All Souls', Oxford, appointed Rector 1616. He seems to have adapted himselt to the times, for "at the instance and earnest desyer" of one of his parishioners, he omitted the sign of the Cross at a baptism in 1646, and in 1647, used the "new forme" issued by the "Directories" and not the Prayerbook. Buried May 7th, 1659.

James Clerke, succeeded his father in 1659. He was suspended for a year in 1698 for having, according to his own confession, celebrated a clandestine marriage at the "Bull in the Barn", a public-house in Frankwell, Shrewsbury, which stood where Cadogan House now is. There is still a small pillar, with a brass plate, marking the site of the well belonging to the old inn.

A religious census taken of parishioners over sixteen years of age in 1676, gives Conformists, 76; Nonconformists, 8; Papists, 10. It is evident from the entry for January 6th, 1661, that this Rector restored the use of the Prayerbook. He was buried September 8th. 1702.

Thomas Clerke, of Gloucester Hall, Oxford, succeeded his father in 1703. During his incumbency the present Church (excepting the south aisle, a later addition), was built. He was buried January 21st, 1732.

Adam Newling, M.A., King's College, Cambridge, appointed in 1732. He resigned in 1747, when he became Rector of Shrawardine.

James Ralph, M.A., of whom no trace is to be found in the Parish records. The Bishop's "Certificates of Institutions" gives the tollowing:- "James Ralph, M.A., was Presented by the King to the Rectory of Fitz ... void by the Resignation of Adam Newling, Clerk, & instituted to it Nov. 17, 1747". In an old note-book kept by the late Richard Middleton, Esq., of Fitz Manor, there is a pencil entry, "Mr. Ralph died in Kent", just before an entry relating to Mr. Hopkins.

William Hopkins, M.A., Jesus College, Oxford, appointed 1774. Buried 1820.

FITZ REGISTERS. vii

William Hopkins, M.A., Oriel College, Oxford, succeeded his father 1822. Died 1848.

Daniel Nihil, M.A., appointed 1848, died i866.

Thomas Bearcroft, M.A., Queen's College, Oxford, appointed 1866, died 1877.

Ebenezer Humphrey Jones, St. Bees' Theological College, appointed 1877, left in 1880 to go to Steynton c. Johnstone in Pembrokeshire.

William Parry, D.C.L., Hertford College, Oxford, appointed 1880.

The Curates have been:-

W. Powell, 1750, d. at Fitz, 1765.
Thos. Amler, 1766 771.
W. Jones, 1771-1772.
Edward Leighton, 1773-1774.
(all during the incumbency of the non-resident Mr. Ralph).
H.M. Phillips, 1820-1821.
Henry Ll. Oswell, M.A., 1865-1866.

The Church is a plain red-brick building, consisting of a nave, with an apse at the east and a tower at the west end. It was built in 1722, when a brief for £1,509 was issued "upon the petition of Thomas Clark, rector, recommended by the Bishop". Contributions are known to have come from St. Paul's Walden, Welwyn; Croxall, Derby; St. Juliana, Salop; High Ercall, and other places (see Church Briefs, by Bewes, page 309). The only monument now visible belonging to the older church is a small tablet, inserted in the south wall of the nave, bearing the inscription "Reliquiae Doctissimi dignissimiq' Viri Johannis Wood olim Collegii Magd.: Cantabr: Praesidis, qui per 30 annos varia passus, tandem Septuagenarius dormivit in Domino, Sept. 19, 1692, [Greek - see below]. This John Wood was an ejected Puritan, who, after living for some years on the charity of friends, died at Mytton. There are two tablets in memory of Edward Waring. One, on the south wall of the nave, gives his coat of arms and the following inscription: "M.S. Edward Waring, Esqr, M.D., F.R.S., Lucasian Professor of Mathematics

in the University of Cambridge & Senior Wrangler 1757. Born in this Parish 1734. Deceased 15th August 1798". Outside the church, on the south wall of the tower, is a tablet with a similar inscription, to which is added "Mary, his widow, daughter of William Oswell, Esqr, Mayor of Shrewsbury 1751. Ob. June 21 1808. AEt. 73. This memorial was renewed A.D. 1852 by their great nephew John Yardley, M.A., Vicar of St Chads, Shrewsbury". His grave is close by among others of the Waring family who owned land at Mytton.

Amongst the principal families, whose names occur in the Fitz Register, are those of Barker, Bather, Clarke, Cole, Kilvert, Kynaston, Lloyd, Oare, Sandford, Scott, Stury, Waring, Wood, Wycherley, and Yonge, who are mostly described as "esq.", "gent.", or "Mr". The entries during the commonwealth period, which record the omission of the sign of the cross in baptism, and the use of the Directory, are of considerable interest.

The Manor of Fitz was bought in 1697 by Robert Wood, who only left daughters to succeed him. Two of them were married at Fitz, viz., Elizabeth, to Mr. Denston, who owned property in Grafton; and Jane to the Rev. William Powell. The great- grandson of this latter marriage is William Powell Frith, R.A. ("Further Reminiscences" by W.P. Frith, R.A., p. 30.) There are monuments in the churchyard to both Denstons and Powells.

The Registers are printed by permission of the present Rector, the Rev. W. Parry, D.C.L. I am indebted to Miss Auden and to the Rev. W.G.D. Fletcher, F.S.A., for much kind help in both the transcription of the Registers and the comparison of the proofs, as they passed through the press, with the original MSS.
