Ford Registers.

THE Parish Register Abstract published in 1831 contains the following account of these Registers:- "Ford P.C. No. I, Bap. Bur., 1589-1759 Mar., 1589-1753. No. II, Bap. Bur., 1760-1812. No. III, Mar., 1754-1812". This account reckons as one volume the early register book, which really consists of two portions, ten parchment leaves from 1589 to 1615 being inserted into the book begun by Thomas Smith, curate in 1616.

Ford did not possess a churchyard till 1862, and the burials mentioned in the register took place in the Church, other funerals being taken to Alberbury. The great care that is taken in the register of marriages to state that the ceremony took place in the "parish church" of Ford, is an assertion of the independence of the parish, and the long account given by the Rev. Thomas Amler of the christening of a child by himself at the request of the vicar of Alberbury is evidently a test case.

Ford is a village and small parish of 1194 acres, containing in 1891 357 inhabitants. In 1676 it possessed 88 inhabitants above the age of 16, one more than Shrawardine. The population of the latter parish was 161 in 1891, from which it seems that Ford has increased considerably in population in the last 200 years. Possibly the enclosure of Ford Heath brought fresh inhabitants. The parish of Ford takes up a very small portion of the large manor of Ford, which was the head of the Hundred formed by Henry I from the older Hundred of Ruesset, of which Alberbury had been head. Of the fourteen berewicks belonging to the manor in 1086, all are in the parish of Pontesbury; and Benthall and Little Shrawardine, which later became members of Ford, are in that of Alberbury. The parish of Ford does not, apparently, take in the whole township, as part of Alberbury parish is called "Ford in Alberbury" in the parish books. Ford, from being a manor of the Saxon Earl Edwin, passed to the Norman Earl Roger, and on the forfeiture of Robert de Balesme, it became a royal manor. It was finally granted in 1230 to Henry de Audley of Red Castle, and remained with his descendants till the sixteenth century. Ford never possessed a resident Lord of the Manor, and in early days the men of the manor enjoyed an unusually independent jurisdiction. As time went on the various members of the manor became in many cases seats of well-to-do families, and the village itself possessed some two or three houses of considerable size. In a manor roll of 1610, William Cross, of "the hall of Foord", and George Hosier, are the only freeholders apparently, in the parish, while the chief copyholders were the Waring and Amler families, several members of which are mentioned; John and Griffith Evans, Richard Wall, Robert Peers, gent., George and Henry Calcott, and Thomas Dax, Katherine Reignoldes, widow, George Browne, John Dovaston, Roger and William Griffiths. and Reece Ferman, complete the list, with the heirs of Leonard Dax. Many of these names continued in Ford for generations, and the two eighteenth-century houses of the Amlers and the Warings still stand on either side of the church.

In the absence of documentary evidence, it is difficult to determine to whom the foundation of the church was due. Its architecture takes back its origin to about 1150, when the manor was in the hands of the Crown, and this may account for the "Chapel of Ford" being subject to that of St. Michael in the Castle of Shrewsbury. St. Michael's in the Castle was held with St. Julian's, Shrewsbury, which was also a Royal Free Chapel, hence Ford is sometimes

iv FORD REGISTERS.

spoken of as belonging to St. Julian's. Its advowson seems to have gone with those of St. Michael's and St. Julian's to Battlefield College, and in 1535-6 the Master of Battlefield returned as among his annual receipts £3 16s. 8d., "being the ferm of the tithes of the Chapel of Foorde". Probably this appropriation by Battlefield is the cause for Ford possessing no glebe land in the parish. The glebe now lies at Worthen and at Melverley, and formerly at Leighton, near Welshpool; while in Ford itself, till the gift of a site for a vicarage in 1870, the Church possessed nothing. The tithe also was all in lay hands till 1869, when a portion of it was given back by the patron, and was met by the Ecclesiastical Commissioners with a sum to be utilized in building a vicarage house. As will be seen from the registers, there seems to have rarely been a resident vicar of Ford. and the succession of incumbents is not continuous. In medimval times it was held with St. Michael's and St. Julian's, Shrewsbury, and the list of vicars will be found in the paper on the history of St. Julian's, in the Transactions of the Shropshire Archeological Society for 1887.

The names of incumbents since the Reformation, as far as can be ascertained, are as follows:-

1587. John Edwards, curate. William Phillips de Crocton, proprietarius seu firmarius,
1616. Thomas Smith, minister.
1632. Leonard Fox, curate.
1634. William Ramsbottom, curate.
1635. Leonard Fox again.
1654. David Ireland, minister.
Ralph Ridgeway, curate, sep. at Pontesbury, 25 May, 1700.
1701. Humphrey Gwynne, curate.
1757. Thomas Amler, M.A., Christ Church, Oxford. Born at Ford, 1726; bur. there Feb. 25, 1793.
1795. James Matthews, curate.
1802. John Newling, Fellow of St. John's Coll., Cambridge.
1812. John Evans.
1814. Thomas Scott Smyth, curate.
1816. Robert Nurgrave Pemberton, M.A., Christ Church, Oxford.
1819. William Hopkins, M.A. [? Oriel College. Oxford].
1824. William Vaughan, curate, M.A., St. John's Coll., Cambridge.
1828. Baldwin Francis Leighton, curate, B.A., Christ Church, Oxford.
1839. Robert Lingen Burton, M.A., Christ Church, Oxford.
1849. John Wason.
1852. Edward Muckleston, M.A., Worcester Coll., Oxford.
1860. William Wingfield. M.A., Trinity Coll., Cambridge.
1863. Charles Parker, M.A., University Coll., Oxford.
1869. Thomas Auden, M.A., St. John's Coll., Cambridge.
1879. John Lewis, M.A., St. John's Coll., Cambridge.

Gough, in his gossiping history of Middle, says that a certain Mary Matthews married John Foden, a Cheshire man, and "came to live in Mr. Luster's chiefe farm in Broughton, where they kept a good stocke of cows, awl a good teame of horses, with which bee carried goods to London: they were in a very thriveing condition, and had one son named Philip. But this John Foden dyed, and soon after his widow's stocke began to decrease, and then she came to the Redd Bull, and there sold ale, and afterwards came to this cottage in Myddle (her father's), and there she sold ale and married with one Nathaniell Platt, who was son of Daniel Platt, a cobbler in Wem. This Nathaniell Platt was a Schuller, and taught schoole in Myddle, and was Rector of Ford, a small benefice of about £6 per annum". If this is correct, Nathaniell Platt's name should come between 1651 and 1701.

The transcript of the register was made (by the kind permission of the Vicar, the Rev. J. Lewis) by Miss Auden, who has also collated the proof-sheets as they passed through the press with the original Registers.

[This "old register book" consists of two parts. The earlier consists of eight leaves of parchment, 11 1/2 inches by 4 1/2, the outer leaves of which are much rubbed and hardly decipherable. It bears the date 1569, but the entries seem to have been made continuously only from 1590. The second book begins in 1617 and is continued to 1760. There is great diversity in the handwriting, especially during the Commonwealth. In one case, of
