Kenley Registers.

KENLEY is in the diocese of Lichfield, and hundred and rural deanery of Condover, four miles W. from Wenlock, and ten miles S.E. from Shrewsbury. The area is 1,872 acres, and the population was 217 in 1881, and 214 in 1891. The rateable value is 1,383.

The Parish Register Abstract, 1831, gives the following account of the Kenley Parish Registers. "Kinley P.C., Nos. I, II, Registers, 1682-1812". This account is not accurate, as, beyond the misspelling of the place, there are three Registers prior to 1812, and not two.

The first volume is a small 4to paper book, in a parchment cover, 7 1/2 by 6 inches, and is in fairly good condition. It commences in 1682, but on the fly-leaf are three earlier entries relating to the Evason family; there is a gap from 1687 to 1692; the book ends in 1771, but the entries on the last leaf are not in chronological order. Marriages from 1757 to 1769 are entered on five pages at the end. There is an excellent list of Briefs from 1707 to 1716, which fill five pages, and 2 Terriers of dues and perquisites pertaining to the rectory fill two pages. Illiterate entries frequently occur, but these can all be made out. The churchwardens frequently sign, but at times only one of them.

The second volume is also a small 4to paper book, in boards, 8 by 6 1/2 inches, and is in good condition. It extends from 1772 to 1811. Thirty-one leaves contain entries of baptisms and burials, with a few marriages. Xt. B. & W. are usually written before the entries. At the end of the book are 33 pages of "Memoranda concerning the repairing of the parish church", in 1854, together with a plan of the church after restoration, a list of the inhabitants, and minutes of vestry meetings, etc.

The third volume, which is in the ordinary printed form, contains entries of marriages from 1773 to 1812. It has a parchment cover. Twenty-five pages are written on, and contain 73 marriages, and one additional banns.

The following is a list of the rectors and curates named in these volumes:-

1682. George Bennett, buried 1 Feb., 1682-3.
1698. Edward Roe.
1713-22. B. Jenks.
1725-27. George Carver, B.A. Christ Church, Oxford.
1728-56. Thomas Walter.
1743. Daniel Hemus, curate. [? B.A. Balliol College, Oxford.]
1758-61. John Douglas, rector ; D.D. Balliol College, Oxford; afterwards Bishop of Carlisle and of Salisbury; died 18 May, 1807. See Dict. Nat. xv, 337-8.
1773. John Davies, curate.
1774. James Dewhurst, curate.
1776-91. James Cope, curate.

iv KENLEY REGISTERS.

1792-1800. Archibald Alison, rector ; B.C.L. Balliol College, Oxford. See Dict. Nat. Biog., i, 286-7.
1801-9. W. Prosser.
1810-39. John Gibbons, curate.
1839-41. Harry Mengden Scarth, rector; M.A. Christ's College, Cambridge. See Diet. Nat. Biog., i, 405-6.
1841-53. J. Meredith, rector.
1853-66. Henry Raper Slade, D.D., rector.
1867-70. John Henry Ellis Charter, curate.
1868-70. J. Broome, rector.
1870-76. George Savile Lumley Little, rector; BA. Trinity College, Cambridge.
1876-79. George Thomas Cull Bennett, rector.
1880-90. Ebenezer Cargill, rector; B.A. St. John's College, Cambridge.
1890. Robert Thomas Kempthorne, rector; M.A. Trinity College, Dublin.

The patronage of the rectory was vested in the Dukes of Cleveland, and now belongs to Lord Barnard.

There are no families of great importance entered in the Registers. Those of Lacon, Hall, Farmer, and Brook are styled "gent." or "Mr.". The second volume contains the baptisms of Sir Archibald Alison, Bart., the historian, on 4 January, 1793, and of Dr. William Farr, the statistician, and superintendent of the Registrar-General's Office (Statistical Department), on 6 December, 1807. See Dict Nat. Biog., i, 287-290, and xviii, 226-7, for an account of these eminent natives of Kenley. Besides the Registers, there is a volume of Churchwardens' Accounts, extending from 1601-1657.

The rector has kindly given this account of Kenley Church:- "The church is very ancient, especially the tower, which is thought to have been built in Roman times as a watch-tower forming part of a fortified encampment. It commanded a view of Caer-Caradoc, and was within sight of Uriconium. The tower has two bells, dated 1685. The fabric of the church is of the plainest. There was formerly a north door opposite the present entrance, as well as a priest's door on the same side; these, and the "lepers' window" have been built up. The pulpit, with its Jacobean sounding-board, and the chancel roof, deserve notice. The silver chalice is dated 1664, and there is a large pewter flagon. There is a mural tablet to the memory of the Rev. Archibald Alison (the historian's father) erected in 1863". The church was restored in 1856 at the cost of 220. Eyton (vi, 92) thinks that Kenley church was originally a chapelry of Cound, and finds no mention of it before the reign of Henry VIII. It is not mentioned in the Valor of 1534-5; but William Chalner occurs as curate in 1602.

The Registers were transcribed by Mr. T.R. Horton, by permission of the rector, Rev. R.T. Kempthorne, and the proofs, as they passed through the press, were compared with the original registers by the Rev. W.G.D. Fletcher, F.S.A.
