The Registers of
Hughley.

Hughley Registers.

AT the dissolution of the monasteries, in 1535, Thomas Cromwell was created Vicar-General, and was entrusted in October of that year with a Commission for the Visitation of Religious Establishments. Among the new regulations was included an injunction framed in September, 1538, providing that every Parson, Vicar, or Curate, should keep a faithful account of the Weddings, Christenings, and Funerals in his Parish.

In Domesday, Hughley occurs as an unnamed manor of half a hide, in the hundred of Condover, held by Aluric's son under Wenlock Priory. It was afterwards held by feoffees of the Priory, at a chief-rent of 5s., and is always written as Lega, or Lee, in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. At the end of the thirteenth century it was called Hughley, the prefix being the Christian name of a former lord of the manor. It was held by the family of de Lega, or de Lee, who took their name from the Lee or manor.

Hughley Chapel was founded before 1176, and was an affiliation of Wenlock. Shortly before 1176 the Prior of Wenlock granted the advowson to Thomas de Lega on certain conditions. In the Taxation of 1291 the Church of Huley, or Heweleye, was valued at less than 4 annually. A list of the Incumbents prior to 1415 is given in Eyton's Antiquities of Shropshire, vi, 308.

The Parish Register Abstract, 1831, contains the following account of the Hughley Registers:- " Hughley R. No. I Register (in bad condition), 1576-1679. No. II, 1681-1777. No. III, Bap., Bur., 1778-1812. No. IV, Marr., 1758-1812."

The first volume of the Hughley Registers embraces a period of one hundred and three years, viz. 1576-1679. It originally consisted of twenty-four leaves, but portions of the tenth, the eighteenth, the twenty-second, and the twenty-fourth have been cut away. Some of the entries are out of their order, but it does not appear that any are missing. The writing is in a fair state of preservation, and very little of it is illegible. The size of the leaves is 11 1/2 by 5 3/4 inches.

The second volume extends from 1681 to 1777. It is smaller than Vol. I, the leaves measuring 10 1/4 by 6 inches. and consists of thirty-one leaves, the last of which has been cut away after the last entry to the extent of half the leaf. None of the entries are illegible, and it is for the most part beautifully written.

HUGHLEY REGISTERS. iii

The third volume contains Christenings and Burials only from 1778 to 1812. It also is of parchment, and bound in a strong vellum cover, and consists of thirteen leaves measuring 11 3/4 by 7 1/4 inches. The entries end on the last page but three, and the two next pages are blank. On the last page are records of the population of the parish at various dates.

The Marriages between 1753 and 1812 are in the prescribed form for Banns and Marriage entries under Hardwicke's Act (1753).

There are no very important entries in these Registers. The Corfields are styled " Mr." and "gent.," and the entries relating to the families of Littleton, Amyas, etc., are of interest.

There are also very few aliases, and it has been said that no adequate explanation of the usage has been given. It would seem, however, that they may be easily accounted for. (1) In some cases obvious circumstances may cause a man to be called by his mother's maiden name as often as by his father's name. That may account for some. (2) In the earlier days of surnames, when their roots were not so deep as they are now, when they had scarcely lost their original descriptive character, and were still in the process of gradual formation, it is easy to imagine a man being called by two surnames. One would fit him for one reason, the other would fit him for another reason. Hence he would have an alias. If a fourteenth or fifteenth century John were the son of Tom, and likewise a baker by trade, some might call him Tomson, and some might call him Baker, and so he would be Tomson alias Baker. One sees an instance of this in the case of one Martin alias Smith, for an entry of burial runs thus,-

1571, June 22. Thomas Hitchings, apprenticius Richardi Martyn fabri ferrarii.

It will be noticed that certain obvious errors in the entries have not been corrected, it being felt that more value would be attached to, and interest created in, a volume which reproduced as closely as possible all the peculiarities of the original documents, than one from which they had been eliminated.

The following is a list of the Incumbents named in the Registers:-

1576. Thomas Forde.
1619. John Goughe.
1665. Gilbert Cole.
1666. Francis Wilkes.
1681-1683. Francis fforester.

1691-1708. Thomas Littleford, B.A., Magd. Hall, Oxford; M.A., Christ's Coll., Camb.; rector of Quatt, 1695.
1708-1722. Jacob Littleford, B.A., Pembroke Coll., Oxford; curate, 1698-1708; buried 27th December, 1722.
1722-1744. Henry Bowdler, B.A., Trinity Coll., Oxford; buried in the church, 19th February, 1744-5.

iv HUGHLEY REGISTERS.

1777-1804. Michael Pye Stephens, of Pembroke Coll., Oxford, was instituted 7th April, 1777. On the 3rd September, 1777, he was re-instituted to the Rectory of Hughley, " void by the neglect or default of the said Michael Pye Stephens, the last Incumbent there, in not conforming to the several acts of uniformity now in force."
1804-1813. Morgan Jones.
1813-1826. Morgan W. Jones.
1826-1850. Benjamin Howell, buried in the church, 12th November, 1850.
1851-1888. John Wakefield, M.A., St. Edmund Hall, Oxford; buried 12th July, 1888.
1888-1894. Thomas Evans Minshull, M.A., Trinity Coll., Dublin, buried, 31st May, 1894.
1894-. Edward Collett, M.A., St. Mary Hall, Oxford.

For over fifty years previous to 1827 there was no resident Rector. The church is dedicated to St. John the Baptist.

The following Curates' names also appear in the Register:-

1675-1681. John Cole, buried 11th January, 1681.
1696-1698. Richard Smallman.
1772. John Greaves.
1817-1818. James Turner.
1818-1821. Roger Atcherley.
1821-1822. T. Braim.
1822-1827. Edward Tillett, Minister of Bourton, 1821, Vicar of Much Wenlock.

In the eighteenth century, several burials from small-pox occur.

The expression sometimes used, " a very good Christian," is curious.

Hughley is in the diocese of Hereford, rural deanery of Church Stretton, and hundred of Condover. The Church is dedicated to St. John the Baptist. The Registers have been transcribed by the Rector. The proofs as they passed through the press have been compared with the first Register by him, assisted by the Rev. W.G.D. Fletcher, and with the subsequent Registers by the Rector.
