Longnor Registers.

Longnor is a village in the Hundred and Rural Deanery of Condover, and Diocese of Lichfield; it lies 8 miles South from Shrewsbury and 5 from Church Stretton. The population in 1891 was 198, and the acreage of the Parish 814 acres. In 1676, there were 92 inhabitants above the age of 16, one a Nonconformist. The Church, probably originally a chapelry of Condover, is mainly of Early English date. Its dedication is not known, though it is sometimes attributed to St. Bartholomew.

Possibly one of the Sprencheaux family, who were lords of Longnor from c. 1150 to 1308, was the builder of the Church. In the reign of Stephen, Roger de Clinton, Bishop of Chester, confirmed the gift to Shrewsbury Abbey of Condover and its Chapels, among which probably was Longnor. In 1235, Roger Sprencheaux had a fortified manor-house at Longnor, probably the predecessor of the present Hall which Sir Richard Corbett built in 1670.

Domesday Book does not mention Longnor by name, but speaks of the important manor of "Lege" (Lee), which possessed a wood capable of fattening 600 swine, and a mill. Longnor Mill, which still exists, was given, about 1226, by Roger Sprencheaux to Haughmond Abbey. Azo Bigot, who held "Lege" in 1086, under Rainald the Sheriff, gave half a hide in "Longenobre" to Shrewsbury Abbey, but this was commuted for a rent-charge, and finally exchanged by Sir Roger Sprencheaux (III.) for land at Bourton. Several deeds of Roger Sprencheaux (III.) are extant, in one of which he allows Richard Clerk and Emma his wife to enlarge the moat of their house near the Vill of Longnor. Possibly this refers to that still remaining at the Moat House. Between 1304 and 1310, Longnor passed from the Sprencheaux to Griffin de la Pole, son of Griffin, Prince of Powis. In 1312, Griffin sold all his lands in Condover, Lidley, Lee, and the Manor of Longnor to Sir Fulk le Strange, of Blackmere, his cousin. Sir Fulk's grand-daughters took Longnor to the families of Careles and Acton. From that of Careles, part of the manor passed with an heiress to John Corbett, of Habberley, whose descendant, Thomas Corbett, in the time of James I., purchased the portion that belonged to the Actons, and handed the manor in its entirety down to his descendants, the present possessors.

iv. LONGNOR REGISTERS.

History is silent as to Longnor Chapel till the time of James I., when it is said to have been held (like Leebotwood) by the Abbey of Haughmond, though it is not mentioned in their Cartulary. Among the Longnor deeds are papers respecting "the right or title of the Corbetts to Longnor Chapel as a free Chapel or Chantry, late belonging to the Abbots of Haughmond, and conveyed to the Corbetts with certain lands and tithes since the dissolution of the religious houses; and then in controversy with the Vicar of Condover, who wished to obtain the same as a Chapel-of-Ease to Condover, 'which it never was'". Longnor, unlike Leebotwood, never in mediaeval times possessed the right of burial. Probably there had been for many years a controversy between the Abbot of Haughmond, who wished to divert the funerals and their fees to his Church of Leebotwood, and the Vicar of the original Mother Church. The Registers of Condover show that many Longnor funerals took place there, and the parish books of the 17th century have constant mention of the disputed status of Longnor. The terrier of 1701 says: "The Township of Longnor has a private Chappel. It payes the greater Tyths to the Impropriator but payes no Vickaridge Tyths to the Vicar; neither do communicate at their Parish church on any of the great festivals, nor at any other Time, for what reason I know not".

The "King's Book" calls it a chapel of Condover, but does not give its dedication.

On the end fly-leaf of Longnor 2nd Vol. is a list of Communicants for 1804-5 and 6, at Easter, Whitsuntide, Michaelmas and Xmas.

At Easter, 1804 "28 at the early Sacrament".
"29 at the 2nd Sacrament".
Total 57

Mich., I Sact. 31
Xmas, 2 Sacraments 60

Fourteen inhabitants of Longnor were assessed for the Subsidy for Edward III.'s wars in France in 1327. Fulk le Strange heads the list, but is not assessed at a large sum.

The Parish Register Abstract of 1837 has this account of the Registers:- "Longnor P.C. No. I. (Parchment), Bap., 1586-1685, Marr., 1586-1685, interrupted by No. II., Bap., 1666-1812, Marr., 1666-1753. No. III., Marr., 1754-1812. No Burial ground at Longnor".

The Longnor Register is in three books; the first, on parchment, is from 1586 to 1685; it has no cover or outside page and may

LONGNOR REGISTERS. v.

have begun as early as Leebotwood in 1548. There are 16 leaves, two of which have had pieces cut off, apparently before they were written on. There is also a small leaf fastened in with three entries on it. The size of the book is 13 1/2 in. by 7 1/2. The second book is the same size and is on parchment, bound in calf, and lettered on the back "Longor Register". It is from 1666 to 1812. They are both in good condition; the writing of the 1st Volume is pale and illegible in a few places only; that of the 2nd is excellent throughout.

Both Volumes record baptisms and weddings only. Burials were at Condover and Leebotwood; except that of Revd. David Rice in 1784 and his w. in 1773, said to be "interred next to their pew in Longnor Chapel". Also Mrs. Anne Corbett, w. of Robert Corbett, Esqr., was interred in a new vault in the chancel of Longnor Chapel in 1791, but removed to Leebotwood and interred there with her husband in 1804. Between 1586 and 1812 there are two breaks, 1631-1658 and 1759-1757, both filled in as far as possible from private sources.

The Marriage Register, 1754-1812, is a book containing the usual printed forms for marriages, bound in white vellum, 14 inches by 9 1/2, and contains 57 entries.

The Longnor Register opens with the name of Corbett in 1586, and contains many Corbett entries throughout its course; no other well-known family appears; Flint and Plymley*, who inter-married with the Corbetts, are also registered as "Esqre." or "Mr.". Besides these, the following are entered as "Mr." in the Registers:- Hunt, Santley, Acton, Moseley, Careless, Atkis, Whittaker.

In 1595, Mary, wife of Mr. Edward Corbett, of Longnor, was buried at Condover, and in 1608, Edward Corbett, Esqre., and Thomas Hunt were both buried there.

George Corbett, gent., in 1665, provides "a Silver Communion Cup to the use of Longnor Chappel".

part of the Registers.
