Habberley Registers.

The village of Habberley lies some 9 1/2 miles south-west from Shrewsbury. It is in the diocese of Hereford, archdeaconry of Ludlow, rural deanery of Pontesbury, and hundred of Ford. The acreage is 804 acres, and the population in 1901 was 110. It is bounded by the parishes of Pontesbury on the north, Church Pulverbatch on the east, and Minsterley, once a chapelry of Westbury, on the west, while on the south it touches Worthen. Entries in the registers are frequently marked "parish of Westbury" or "parish of Worthen", or in several places simply "p. W.", which seems to mean the parish of Westbury, not of Worthen. Habberley was originally a member of the manor of Minsterley, which in 1086 was held under Earl Roger de Montgomery by Roger Fitz-Corbet. It had been a royal manor of the Saxon kings, and Marsley in Habberley parish is thought to be the "Marsetlie" to which the burgesses of Shrewsbury were bound to accompany the king when he went thither to hunt.

Habberley was early held under the Corbets of Caus by members of the family of De Arundel, who retained it till the close of the 13th century, when it passed with an heiress to the Corbets of Wattlesborough and Moreton Corbet. The Corbet estates passed in turn to the De Burgh family, and on their partition among four coheiresses, Habberley was part of the share of Elizabeth de Burgh, wife of Thomas Mutton, of Shrewsbury, with whose descendants it remained till 1846, when it was bought by Mr. William Hanbury Sparrow. It is now the property of Mr. Heighway Jones, who is lord of the manor and patron of the rectory.

The Parish Register Abstract of 1837 gives this account of the Parish Registers of Habberley:- "Habberley R. No. i, ii, Registers 1670-1790. No. iii, Bap. Bur., 1791-1812. No. iv, Marr., 1751-1812". This account is not quite accurate, for though the first page begins in 1670, the earliest Register really commences in 1598. Several pages have been inserted and the entries now do not run consecutively. There are two gaps in the middle of the 17th century (from 1618 to 1627 and from 1630 to 1670), but apparently some pages have disappeared in comparatively modern days, as extracts exist from years not now in the register book. The first Register extends to 1736. It is a volume containing 23 parchment leaves, size 10 1/2 by 5 inches, in a brown leather cover. The second Volume contains entries of Baptisms and Burials from 1736 to 1791, and of Marriages to 1753. It consists of 11 parchment leaves, 13 by 7 inches, in a parchment cover. The third Volume is a parchment book, of which only 8 leaves are filled, 13 by 9 inches, in a leather cover. On the cover was printed "Parish of Pulverbatch", but the word "Pulverbatch" has been crossed out, and "Habberley" written over in ink. The Register, which contains entries of Baptisms and Burials from 1792 to 1812, is headed:- "Habberley Parish Register 1792". The fourth Volume is the usual printed Marriage Register, and extends from 1754 to 1812. There are also some early books of Churchwardens' Accounts still in existence.

iv HABBERLEY REGISTERS.

In the Condover register a long document is inserted giving an account of an exchange of glebe land at Habberley, in which mention is made of Parson Norgrave and Parson Cooper, and Mr. Thomas Mytton's steward "Bayly Hincks", The document is undated, but speaks of the exchange having taken place some 58 years before, in the time of Richard Norgrave, parson of Habberley, and Mr. Richard Mytton, lord of the Manor. The next parson, John Cooper, was unjustly obliged by the Steward to pay rent for the land, and owing to the death in London of Thomas Mytton, could obtain no redress of the wrong. His successor, Thomas Cooper, brought the matter before Richard, the son of Thomas Mytton, and his widowed mother, Rebecca. William Owen, parson of Pontesbury, upheld the claim of the church, but no clue is given as to the final settlement of the matter. Thomas Mytton died in 1656, having apparently left Habberley in consequence of the troubles of the Civil Wars. He was one of the best known of the Parliamentary generals, but not one of the most advanced politicians. An eminent member of the Mytton family made Habberley his home in the first half of the 18th century, and lies buried under the Communion Table of the Church. This was William Mytton the antiquary, who made large MS. collections for a history of Shropshire. He was the second surviving son of Richard Mytton of Halston, Sheriff of Shropshire in 1686, by his wife Arabella, daughter of Sir John Houblon, Lord Mayor of London. He died 8th September, 1746, aged 50, and was buried here on the 10th.

Habberley Hall is a fine half-timbered building, over the porch of which was formerly the inscription "This hous builded as you see A.D. 1593 by W.L." W.L. is probably William Leighton, fourth son of Sir Edward Leighton of Wattlesburgh, Sheriff in 1568, and Anne Dorell (or Dayrell), his wife. The Right Worshipful Mistress Anne Leighton, buried at Habberley in 1615, was probably his mother.

The Putslows, who are among the very few families described as gentry in the register, were of Hogstow, in Minsterley parish.

The Church of Habberley is first mentioned in the 13th century, but it probably existed earlier. It was apparently a chapelry of Minsterley, which is thought to have been the site of a Saxon Collegiate Church, transferred later to Westbury, and with Minsterley, Habberley became associated with the latter foundation. The present Church of St. Mary is a small building of stone in the Early English style of architecture, and consists of chancel and nave, with western bell-turret. It was new-roofed and repaired in 1864. On the north side of the chancel is a small lean-to building now used as a vestry, which may have erected for a chantry. On the south side is an aumbrey. Near the entrance door are a large number of deeply incised arrow marks. The stained glass in the east window was inserted by Mr. Frederick Turton Sparrow, in 1868. He died 20th March, 1887, and was buried in the churchyard.

The patronage of the rectory belonged to the Corbets in the 14th century, and afterwards to the De Burghs. From them it passed to the Myttons, and remained in that family till 1846, when it was purchased by William Hanbury Sparrow. Mr. Heighway Jones is now patron. The value of the rectory in the King's Books is 4 0s. 2d. per annum.

The following is an incomplete list of the Rectors of Habberley. The earlier ones are taken from Eyton's Antiquities, vol. vii, and

HABBERLEY REGISTERS. v.

the later ones from the Libri Institutionum in the Public Record Office. The Diocesan Registers at Hereford would probably supply the names of other rectors:-

1862. John Rogers, M.A., Brasenose College, Oxford; afterwards Vicar of St, James', Accrington.

The Curates whose names occur in the Registers are as follows:-
Thomas Roberts, 1747-9; Thomas Mills, 1755-7; John Jones, 1792-1814; Joseph Hussey; John Meredith, 1829-34; E.H. Thompson, 1834-7; Emilius Nicholson, 1846.

Some further particulars about Habberley, together with some extracts from the Registers which are now missing, will be found in Volume viii. of the Transactions of the Shropshire Archaelological Society.

The Registers were transcribed by Mr. T.R. Horton, and collated by Miss Auden, who has also carried the proof sheets through the press. They are now printed by the kind permission of the Rev. T.B. Aston, the present Rector of Habberley.
