Hopton Castle Registers.

THE Parish Register Abstract, 1831, gives the following return of the Hopton Castle Registers:- "Hopton Castle R. Nos. I., II. (Parchment) Bap. Bur. 1538-1812. Marr. 1538-1754. No. III. Marr. 1755-1812". The same three Registers are still in existence.

The 1st bound together Register Book of Hopton Castle begins at 1538 and goes to 1733, and consists of 59 leaves besides the cover. It is parchment and in excellent condition, though many entries at the beginning are much faded and have had to be restored. They are now quite perfect. The entries are in Latin (with a few exceptions) up to 1654. The Volume contains two, if not three, original Register Books:- 1-1538 to 1580; 2-1580 to 1668; 3-1669 to 1733.

There is a gap between October, 1570, and November, 1575, owing, evidently, to the leaves being lost when the others were bound up in the Second Register Book of 1580 to 1668.

There are no entries in the Register for 1644 to 1651.

The cut cover of this volume is still in its place.

Between July and December, 1681, two leaves have been cut out, and again one leaf from 30th July, 1720. to 6th October, 1721.

Register Book No. 2, beginning 1734 and ending 1812, has 17 leaves besides the thick cover, and is in perfect order.

The third volume contains Marriages from 1755 to 1812. It is of paper, in the usual printed form. Inserted in this volume are a number of receipts for moneys collected on Briefs, of considerable interest.

It should be noted that Hopton Castle is one of six Shropshire Registers which are known to begin in the year 1538, the others being Chetton, Pontesbury, Rushbury, Shipton, and Stoke-upon-Tern.

The family of Littleton is the most important that occurs in the earliest Register. Other families of interest that appear in the Registers are those of Beddowes, Harley, Hotchkis, Lingen, Mitton, Smith, and Watis.

The Chapel of Hopton, which is dedicated to St. Mary, was originally in Clun Parish, and passed to Wenlock Priory in the 12th century by grant of Isabel de Say. but the Lords of Hopton did not consent to this arrangement, and Hopton remained a Rectory. Hopton Castle is in the Hundred of Purslow, Diocese of Hereford, and Deanery of Clun. In 1643, the Castle of Hopton was held for the Parliament by Samuel More, of Larden and Linley, and a garrison of 31 men. After a stubborn siege of more than a month, they surrendered unconditionally to Sir Michael Woodhouse. Mr. More was committed to the care of Lieutenant Aldersea, who took him first to the "house of one Glasbroke", and afterwards to Brampton Bryan. The rest of the garrison were put to death without mercy. Considerable remains of the Castle are still standing, a picturesque ruin.

From the Hoptons, Hopton Castle passed in the 15th century to the Corbets by marriage, and from them to Sir Henry Wallop, Sheriff in 1606. Robert Wallop, son of Sir Henry Wallop, of Poynton, and Elizabeth Corbet, sold his estates at Hopton in 1655 to Bartholomew Beale, who died in 1674 at his house in London, leaving a son, Bartholomew, whose son Thomas was Sheriff of Shropshire in 1734.

The patronage of the Rectory has frequently changed hands. Sir Walter de Hopton presented in 1290 and 1334, and Sir John Hopton in 1373. In 1653, Robert Wallop was patron; in 1698, 1729, 1754, 1778, Thomas Beale (according to the Liber Regis); in 1856, T. Salwey Beale. Esq.; and in 1888, Sir Edward Ripley, Bart.

The Registers were transcribed, and are here printed by the kind consent of the Rev. Edward Daubeney Elton, the present Rector; and the proofs have been compared with the original Registers (Vols. I. and II.) by Miss Auden, and with Vol. III. by the Rev W.G.D. Fletcher.
