Leighton Registers.

LEIGHTON is a parish in the Hundred of South Bradford, 9 miles from Shrewsbury, 4 from Ironbridge, and 6 from Wellington, in the Diocese of Lichfield and Archdeaconry of Salop. It is bounded on the South by the Severn and on the North by the Wrekin. Eaton Constantine parish, formerly a chapelry of Leighton, lies on the West between it and Wroxeter, and Buildwas parish is on the East. Garmston, the chief hamlet, lies north-west from the Church. The extent is 1,681 acres, and the population in 1911 was 206. The old parish included Belswardine on the other side the Severn, an entirely detached portion lying between Harley, Sheinton and Cressage, with a manor house that was the home of the Harnage family, one of whom having married Margery, daughter of Sir Thomas Lacon, of Willey, bought the estate in 1541 from Sir John Dudley.

Belswardine belonged in 1086 to Helgot the Baron of Castle Holgate. Edmund, a Saxon franklin, had held it as half-a-hide in the time of King Edward, when it was worth 10/- yearly. It had arable land for two teams, but only one was employed; one half team on the demesne land, and another half team by the serf and two bordars who represented the population of the manor, which in 1086, was only valued at 4/- yearly. The overlordship remained with the owners of Castle Holgate till at least the time of Bishop Burnell, but several different families held it in turn under them. The manor was originally within the forest territory of Shirlet. The inhabitants of Belswardine were buried at Leighton till the 18th century. Tradition says that the custom was discontinued after a crossing the river in flood-time, when the coffin was capsized into the Severn, and recovered with difficulty, but the date of the supposed occurrence is not given !

The manor of Leighton was held in 1086 by Rainald the Sheriff as a manor of three hides. He had three teams on the demesne lands; and 6 neatherds, 4 villeins, 7 bordars, with a priest, and a Frenchman had 5 teams. The manor had a mill yielding 4/- yearly, and half a league of wood yielding 11d. In King Edward's time under Leuui, its Saxon lord, the manor had been worth 20/- yearly, but when it came to Rainald it was waste. In 1086 it had doubled in value, and was fully cultivated.

About 50 years after the Domesday Survey was made, the Fitz-Alans Rainald's successors enfeoffed here the ancestor of the De Leighton family, from whom a long line has descended to the present day. Several lords of Leighton were benefactors to Buildwas Abbey, among their gifts being Leighton Mill, and in 1282, Richard De Leighton granted the advowson of the Church to Bishop Burnell, who conveyed it to the monks of Buildwas.

It is not impossible that the Leighton, lords of Leighton, were descended from the Saxon owner of the manor. They gave many men of note to the service of King and country throughout mediaeval times, and threw out several branches. In the 14th century a Leighton married the heiress of the Cambrays of Stretton-in-the-Dale, and one of their descendants, John Leighton, married one of the four heiresses of Sir John Burgh, and thus inherited Wattlesburgh Castle and Loton Park.

iv. LEIGHTON REGISTERS.

Other members of the family settled in or near Leighton as the family deeds show, when for instance in 1452, John Leighton of Leighton occurs with William, lord of Leighton, in a deed relating to land at Garmston. In 1479, William Leighton, junior, and Hugh his son, were living at Rodenhurst, and bought a house and land at Roden, and the number of deeds of the Rodenhurst family possessed by the Leightons show an early connection with that place, and probably with its possessors. In 1515, another William Leighton was of Leighton, and Hugh Leighton was of Rodenhurst, and in 1539, William Leighton having no issue by Margaret his wife, settled his estate upon his nephew Thomas Poyner, and Hugh Leighton of Rodenhurst, his cousin and next heir male, Thomas Lee of Langley, John Barkley of Cressage, and John Barons, Vicar of Cressage, being trustees. The division of the estate seems to have been made in 1543, and in 1558, Hugh Leighton made over Leighton Manor and Rodenhurst Farm to his son John. In 1563, John's son, John Leighton, married Katherine, sister of Sir Richard Newport, and his daughter Anne married Richard Jones of Alstanton, who settled upon her property at More, Leebotwood, Wenlock, and Wolstaston. In 1573, John Leighton lived at Leighton, and John, his eldest son, at Rodenhurst. Thomas Poyner retained an interest in the manor, as in 1570, he and John Leighton held a joint Court. Richard Leighton and Lewis Leighton, gentlemen, were among those who appeared at it. In 1538, Lewis Leighton's name appears on the Muster Roll of Bradford Hundred as providing bill-men from Leighton and Garmston.

The manor passed from father to son for some five generations longer, till the time of Richard Leighton, who was High Sheriff of Salop in 1695. He married Elizabeth, daughter of Anthony Kynnersley of Wrickton, youngest son of Thomas Kynnersley of Badger, and their eldest daughter Elizabeth was baptised at Badger in March, 1685, when Richard is described as " of Rodenhurst." Richard Leighton and Elizabeth Kynnersley had a family of two sons (who both died young), and eight daughters, five of whom married; the eldest, Elizabeth, became wife of John Stanier of Cosford; Sarah, the second, baptised at Rodington in 1686, married her cousin, Thomas Kynnersley; Mary, Margaret and Lettice, were all baptised at Badger, and of them Mary died unmarried in 1754, Margaret married Thomas More, and Lettice John Hayne of Uttoxeter. Catherine died unmarried in 1726, and Frances, the youngest, died as an infant in 1699. Rachel, the seventh daughter, married Robert Davison of the Brand, near Norton-in-Hales, and lived till 1762. In the introduction to the Badger Register, her sister Lettice is wrongly given as wife of Robt. Davison.

In 1758, on the death of Clement Kynnersley of Badger, the estate of Badger reverted to the elder branch of the Kynnersleys of Loxley, near Uttoxeter, and was sold by Clement Kynnersley of Loxley a few years later. Elizabeth Leighton's two sons both died unmarried. John, a few months after his father in 1716, aged 23, and Richard in 1733, aged 37, and Leighton passed to Thomas Kynnersley, the husband of her second daughter, Sarah. He died in 1734, leaving two sons, but only the younger, Anthony, left children, and his eldest son Thomas, having no child, left Leighton to his niece, Jane Eliza, the daughter of his youngest brother, a second Anthony. She married, in 1828, Robert Panting, of Shrewsbury, of the family that inherited the Sansaw estate, and took the name of Gardner, Mrs. Gardner's son took the name of Kynnersley, and his son, T. F. Kynnersley, Esq., is the present squire and holds an estate which has never been sold since at least the early 12th century. The Rev. J. B. Blakeway, in his " Sheriffs of Shropshire," derives the Leightons of Leighton from a second marriage of Sir Thomas Leighton, of Wattlesborough. He gives no authority for his statement, which is rendered very improbable by the fact that Sir Thomas' wife, Elizabeth,

LEIGHTON REGISTERS. v.

daughter of Walter Devereux, Lord Ferrers (and widow of Sir Richard Corbet, of Moreton Corbet, by whom she had seven children), died in 1516, and he in 1519. Dame Elizabeth Leighton was buried at Burford, the home of her daughter Anne Corbet, the wife of Sir Thomas Cornwall. Sir Thomas had three children by her, only one of whom, John Leighton of Wattlesborough, left descendants, but he had nine children by Anne, daughter of Roger Baker of Shrewsbury, whom Mr. Blakeway calls his second wife, and who is given as such in the Herald's Visitation of 1623, though Sir Thomas does not call her so in his will in 1519, in which he mentions eight of the children by name. The Visitation states that all the three sons, and two of the six daughters, died without leaving descendants. It is possible that his son William is identical with the William Leighton of Leighton, who died childless in 1540, but this seems hardly probable. Sir Thomas mentions in his will his manor of Stepulton out of which his brother William was to have an annuity of twenty marks, which on his death was to go to Richard, Sir Thomas' son, and after him to the rightful heirs of Sir Thomas. He provided by name for the marriage portions for five daughters (Elizabeth's name is not given), and for the schooling of his sons Edward, Thomas and William, for six years each, out of the profits of the manor of Alberbury and of the " townes " of Cardiston, Loton, and ' the Hey ' (Hayes). He also provided for a priest to say Mass in the parish Church of Stretton for his soul and those of his parents. In the whole document there is no mention of the manor of Leighton, nor of his wife. He desires that " Ann Baker for her service done to me shall have the Profitt of my Mylles of Awstretton duryng her lyf to the fyndynge of her and her chylder, and after her deceas the Remainder thereof to my ryght Heyres for ever." The Heralds' Visitation gives no hint, however, of the daughters being not legitimate, when mentioning their marriages.

The Lay Subsidy Roll of 1327, when one twentieth of the value of all moveable goods was given to the King for the French wars, only gives three names at Leighton: Richard de Leghton, Thomas Cresset, and John the Miller, from which we gather that the majority of the inhabitants were cottagers, whose worldly goods did not exceed 10/- of the money of those days, which would be equal to about £12 or £15 of ours. Four names are given at Garmston: Henry de Garmston, William de Downton, Adam Selk, and William Selk. The tenants of Belswardine were less well- off than those of Garmston, but four names are also given there: John de Langley, Thomas de Wyke, Hugh the Herdman, and Hugh the Stone-hewer.

Leighton Hall, mainly a good 18th century building of 1778, with modern additions, incorporates much early work, and is on the site of the fortified manor-house of the early Leightons. In 1887, process of alterations and additions showed that the Elizabethan half-timbered house was built upon very massive sandstone foundations of early date and great thickness.

According to the Heralds' Visitation of 1623, the Lacons of West Coppice, were descended from Lancelot, an illegitimate son of Edward Lacon, who was the second son of Sir Thomas Lacon of Willey and his wife Mary, daughter of Sir Richard Corbet of Moreton. Lancelot's son Silvanus married the widow of Francis Harnage of Belswardine, and their son James was buried at Leighton in 1667. He was succeeded by his son, John, who presented to Leighton in Jan., 1687, and in 1713. One of James Lacon's daughters, Anne, was a friend and companion of the Countess of Bradford in 1682, and is mentioned in the letters of Lady Russell, her kinswoman. She left a bequest in 1700 to the Parishes of Leighton and of Buildwas.

vi. LEIGHTON REGISTERS.

The last Lacon entry at Leighton seems to be the burial in January, 1716, of John, son of John Lacon of the West Coppice, Esq., and Jane his wife, a baby baptized at Sheinton in June, 1715. Richard Lacon, Esq., of West Coppice was buried at Sheinton in 1718. The estate was a few years later held by the Moseleys of Mere, co. Staffs., one of whom, Walter, had married Jane Acton, the heiress of Buildwas Abbey, and it was rented in 1761 by John Smitheman, Sheriff of Salop.

West Coppice is now known as Buildwas Park, but the old house has been re-built. The garden still possesses an old yew avenue.

Leighton Furnace is first mentioned in 1698, but afterwards it appears constantly. There seem to have been several men who were iron-workers and coal miners. Richard Plimer of Leighton was married in 1684 at Rowley Regis, Staffordshire, to Elizabeth Jonson, and their daughter Susannah was baptised there. Probably he was an iron-worker there.

The Church of St. Mary as it now stands is of 18th century date, but its builders seem to have used the old foundations, and the proportions are those of an earlier Church.

It contains the 13th century monument of Sir Richard de Leighton said to have been brought from Buildwas Abbey, and the tomb with effigies in memory of William Leighton, who died childless in 1540, and Margaret his wife. A number of mural tablets commemorate members of the Leighton and Kynnersley families.

In the list of Church Goods made in 1553 (7 Ed. VI.), though headed " Norton," we read that " Jhon Barnes, vicar, Hewe Leyghton, and Harry Tarte and William Aldryche, churchwardens," received the custody of " one chalice of silver with a paten thereunto; and three bells within the steeple of Leighton." There are still three bells, but they were cast by Abraham Rudhall in 1716, and bear his stamp and date. One has in addition the names of George Higginson and John Davis, churchwardens.

The patronage of the living, made over by Sir Richard de Leighton to Bishop Burnell, who gave it to the Abbey of Buildwas, passed at the Dissolution of that house through several hands to those of the Lacons of West Coppice. In 1737, Godolphin Edwards presented, and from that time till 1901, the presentation seems to have frequently changed hands. Thomas Hall of Bridgnorth presented in 1794 and 1807, and Julian Gartner Hall in 1815. In 1901, the Vicar of St. Chad's, Shrewsbury, became patron in exchange for the advowson of Bicton.

In mediaeval times 5/- yearly was paid to the rector of Holgate, probably as an acknowledgment of the manorial status of Belswardine.

At the Religious Census of Shropshire taken in 1676, there were at Leighton 152 Church people over the age of 16, and 5 Papists. There is no record of Leighton during the time of the Commonwealth, except that a " Mr. Milward of Leighton " is said to have been the Royalist Chaplain at Bridgnorth, where Richard Baxter also ministered on the other side. Samuel Willis, the puritan minister of Birmingham, till 1661, spent his last days with his son of the same name, who was Vicar of Leighton. Calamy says that Samuel Willis, senior, was born at Coventry, and was of Christ's College, Cambridge, and that he died at his son's house in 1684, aged 73. The Vicar of Leighton was himself buried at Sheinton in 1686.

The Registrar of Lichfield gives the appointment of Samuel Willis in 1666 as being on the death of William Stanier, buried on 26 March, 1666, but the Leighton Register gives the date as 28 April, and gives him no title. William Stanier was Vicar of Leighton in 1662, when he gave 10/- to a present for the King from the Clergy of the Realm. The Staniers were a branch of the Staffordshire family of that name, and the first to come into Shropshire came, according to the Rev. J. B. Blakeway, as agent to Francis, first Earl of Bradford (born 1620), and married a daughter of Robert Allestree, his predecessor as agent, and sister of Dr. Allestree, Provost of Eton.

The family settled at Uppington, and sent out several branches. John Stanier, barrister-at-law, of Cosford, near Shifnal, married Elizabeth Leighton.

LEIGHTON REGISTERS. ix.

The Christian name Judith seems to have been used by the Staniers and the Leightons, and also by the Boycotts, who, in 1585, were of Buildwas, which goes to show friendship and probably relationship. The curious name of Sylvanus found in several families at Leighton was a name in the Boycott family, through the marriage of William Boycott to Elinor, daughter of Sylvanus Lacon and sister of James Lacon, born in 1603, the patron of Leighton in 1666. One of the Lutwiches of Lutwyche, married Elizabeth, daughter of Roger Boycott of Eye, co. Salop. If by this is meant the Eye Farm, a picturesque half-timbered house still standing, this would explain the connection with the neighbourhood of Leighton. The Eye was a separate manor in 1086. It consisted of a virgate of land with enough arable for one ox-team, but the villein and two serfs, who held it under Tochi, the tenant of Robert Fitz Tetbald, possessed no team. It had been worth 5/- yearly, but Domesday says nothing as to its value in 1086. The manor was later held by the Woodcotes, of Woodcote, who bought other land in Eaton Constantine and Leighton. About 1300, it was held by Michael de Morton (whose mother was a Woodcote), under William Rondulf, burgess of Newport. He was contemporary with Sir Richard de Leighton (V.), and a deed made between them gives several place-names of the boundaries between Leighton and the Eye.

The Parish Register Abstract of 1837 contains this account of the Registers:-" Leighton V., Nos. i-iv, Bap., Bur., 1662-1812 . No. V., Marr., 1754-1812."

The present Registers are:-

Vol. I. 1661-1698, a parchment book of 14 leaves, in limp parchment cover, size 13½ by 6½ inches, the cover written on inside.

Vol. II. 1699-1740, 23½ leaves of parchment, 13 by 6 inches, in stiff parchment cover.

Vol. III. Baptisms and Burials, 1741-1786; Marriages to 1754, 19 leaves of parchment, bound in calf, 13½ by 8 inches.

Vol. IV. Baptisms and Burials, 1787-1812, is a quarto volume of 375 pages, bound in calf, of which about 40 pages have been filled. The remaining leaves are being used for notes on matters connected with the parish.

Vol. V. Marriages, 1754-1812, on the usual paper forms, only 22 leaves of the volume being used.

There are early transcripts at Lichfield beginning in 1632, but ceasing in 1637.

The Registers contain few entries of interest. Details of trades or professions are rarely given, and prefixes are rare, especially in the earliest volume. The Baxter family, who were prosperous freeholders, are not always called " Mr.," nor are all the members of the Leighton family. John Leighton and his wife Sarah, the daughter of Rowland Lea, of Charlton, seem to have lived at Charlton, near Wrockwardine, for their children were baptised there though buried at Leighton. The Lacon family are given the Esqr. or Mr. in every case, but John Legas, who, in 1680, married Mary Leighton, and whose family were all baptised at Leighton, never is accorded a prefix.

Valentine Chetwode, gentleman, buried in 1687, was probably one of the Staffordshire family of that name. Richard Chetwode who married a daughter of Sir Valentine Knightley, had a son Valentine, who had two sons, one of whom, the Dean of Gloucester, had a son and daughter who died unmarried, about the close of the 17th century.

x. LEIGHTON REGISTERS.

The large number of funerals is to some extent accounted for by the fact of Eaton Constantine having the right of burial at its mother Church of Leighton. Many members of the Baxter family are mentioned, Richard Baxter was a personal friend of Samuel Willis, vicar of Leighton, 1666-1686.

Other names given a prefix in the 18th century are:- Mr. William Stanier, Churchwarden in 1703, Mr. Edward Dod, of Eaton Constantine, 1718. There was a family of Dod at Harnage, one of whom was chosen in 1654 as "Register" of Cound.

Mr. Joseph Dicken and Mrs. Mary Arden, 1720, suggests a connection with William Dicken, Rector of Sheinton, 1714-1743. Mr. John Meeson and Mrs. Anne Arden, were married 1727. The Arden family were of Wrockwardine and Wellington. Mr. John Warham, who occurs several times from 1730 onwards, was probably a son of John Warham, Vicar of Eaton Constantine in 1698. In 1737, he occurs as Curate of Leighton. Mr.George Warham 1737, was of the same family, Mr. William Colley, 1733, was of a family frequently mentioned. John Hayne, Esq., buried the same year was the husband of Lettice Leighton, who died 1755. He was of Uttoxeter, with which neighbourhood the elder branch of the Kynnersleys was connected. Mrs. Mary Legas, 1736, was the Mary Leighton married in 1680, but in 1740, at the marriage of Arthur Astley and Elizabeth Kynnersley, no prefix is given, though she is called Mrs. Elizabeth Astley at her burial in 1764. Mr. Henry Crocket, 1746, was of Garmston, and was aged 92. The Rev. Mr. Tipton, 1749, was incumbent of Eaton Constantine for ten years. Mrs. Ward, 1750, was apparently of the Eye Farm, as Mr. John Ward was in 1777.

Stephen Prytherch, Vicar of Leighton, and of Much Wenlock, from 1755 till 1786, is frequently mentioned in the Registers. Mr. John Prytherch was buried in 1762. In 1780, William Oswell, Esq., of St. Chad's, Shrewsbury, married Miss Mary Prytherch, and in 1782, Edward Blakeway, gentleman, of Broseley, widower, married Miss Catherine Prytherch, and their daughter Catherine was baptised in 1785.

Mr. Edward Williams and his wife Barbara Letitia, five of whose children were baptised at Leighton between 1761 and 1772 (two others were baptised at Sheinton in 1763 and 1765) were of Eaton Mascott. She was Barbara Letitia Mytton of Halston, widow of John Corbet of Sundorne.

Henry, son of Mr. Richard and Mrs. Sarah Bagnall was baptised in Jan., 1760, but when he was buried in October that year, his mother was a widow. She married again in 1762.

Mrs. Mary Parton, widow, was buried in 1768, and Mr. Thomas Freeman in 1779.

Anthony Kynnersley, who died in 1760, married Jane, daughter of Borlase Wingfield of Preston Brockhurst and Ellen his wife, sister of Sir Rowland Hill. Mrs. Kynnersley's sister Sarah married Thomas Dicken of Wollerton, who probably was related to the Rector of Sheinton, and another sister married John Rocke of Shrewsbury.

In 1782 the wedding of Thomas Smith and Eleanor Garland recalls a combination of names well known in Shropshire in the present day.

Thomas Jones, Curate of Leighton, buried in 1789, is commemorated by a tombstone in the churchyard, which states that " his wealthy relations refusing expenses of a burial monument, in memory of his services, the principal parishioners of Leighton have placed one."

LEIGHTON REGISTERS. xi.

John Holme, Vicar from 1786 to 1794, seems to have taken pupils, as his name occurs as recommending a book on grammar, which he states he had himself found useful. His successor, Henry Crump, apparently married a connection of his patron, Thomas Hall, of Bridgnorth, as the sons of Henry and Arabella Crump were Henry Hall, baptised and buried in 1795, and Thomas Hall, baptised in 1786. Four years later a daughter of Henry Crump and his wife Elizabeth was baptised, but there is no entry at Leighton of the funeral of the first wife, nor was Henry Crump himself buried there. He died in 1807.

His successor, William Corser, was buried in the churchyard in 1814, where his grave is marked by an iron slab, marked " W.C., born June 15, 1761, died July 16, 1814." His successor, Robert Maddocks, who held the living till 1851, also lies in Leighton churchyard.

In 1863, the old Vicarage House (now called the Lodge) was exchanged for the present one, an old house which had at that time been recently enlarged by Mr. Kynnersley.

Among unusual names we have the men's names of Sylvanus, Dositheus, and Gabriel, and the women's of Silvestris or Sylvestra, Jarret, Erme, Apphia, Sindonia, Millicent (in 1701) and Ethelred.

Percy occurs as a Christian name in 1771, an unusually early date. Possibly it was derived from the family of Piercy or Percy of Bridgnorth. The parents of Bishop Percy of Dromore were married at Eaton Constantine in 1726.

A tombstone in the churchyard to the memory of Mary, wife of Richard Palmer, who died in July, 1712, is said to give her age as 107, but this seems probably a mis-reading. Stephen Davies who was buried at Leighton in 1837, aged 102, could remember Sarah Beech, who was buried in 1737, at the supposed age of 106.

In the Church is an iron slab in memory of William Browne, who died in 1696, and another dated 1677, from which two name plates have been lost. It seems probable that it commemorates two members of the Gaynam family of Eaton Constantine, who died in that year.

The completeness of the list of incumbents is owing to the kindness of Mr. T. F. Kynnersley, who had it drawn up from the Diocesan records at Lichfield, and several items of the Introduction are derived from his book on the records of his family.

The transcript of the Registers was made by Mr. T. R. Horton, and was since collated by Miss Auden, who has also seen the proofs through the press. This Register is part of the gift of the late Mrs. Seymour to the Society, and it is now printed with the leave of the former and present Vicars of Leighton.

Stephen Prytherch, Master of Arts, Vicar of Much Wenlock was collated to the Vicarage of Leighton, Dec. 22, 1755, by Frederick, Lord Bishop of Lichfield and Coventry, in right of a Lapse, and inducted the 29th by JOHN HOUSE, Minister of Benthall.

[For the next 30 years the register is in the handwriting of the Rev. Stephen Prytherch.]

No Flattry here: where to be born and die,
Of Rich and Poor is all their History;
Enough if Virtue fill'd the space between,
Proved by the Ends of Being to have been.

June 3, 1760.

Whereas the Churchyard of Leighton was for many years
possessed by the Proprietors of Leighton Hall, under Pretence
that the Ground was at first given by one of the family, with
a Reserve of the Herbage. Be it now remembered that by
a lately discovered Book of Mr. Richard Wolley, formerly
Vicar here, it appears that the said Family paid him for the use
of the said Churchyard, the sum of five shillings yearly, during a
Term of near forty years. In consequence of which it is acknowledged
that the Freehold of the Churchyard is in the Vicar, and Mr.
Kynnersley, the present proprietor of Leighton Hall desires to hold
the Herbage of him at a yearly Rent.

1757] Leighton. 55

N.B.- On the death of Mr. Kynnersley, the Trustees having paid for
the Churchyard five shillings yearly from the time of my induction,
resigned it, and now I keep it for my own use, in witness whereof I
hereto set my Name.

STEPH. PRYTHERCH,
Vicar of Leighton,
