Montford Registers.

Montford is a parish on the banks of the Severn, 5 miles from Shrewsbury, in the Archdeaconry of Salop, Diocese of Lichfield, and Hundred of Pimhill, the population of which was 478 in 1891 and 436 in 1901. It consists of the townships of Ensdon, Forton, and Montford, with a united area of 3,097 acres. The Fitz-Alans, Earls of Arundel, were early owners, and from them it passed by purchase to Sir Thomas Bromley, Lord Chancellor of England, 1579-85. When his descendant, Henry Bromley, was raised to the Peerage, in 1741, he took his title of Lord Montfort from this parish, and " by word of mouth ordered " the Vicar " to alter the name of the Parish in this Register according to his Title." The second Lord Montfort parted with this property to the great Lord Clive about 1760, and it now remains in the hands of the Earl of Powis, who is the present Lord of the Manor. The existing Church, dedicated to St. Chad, was built in 1736, and is a small plain edifice of red sandstone. It was restored in 1884 at a cost of £700, when the north porch and the organ were added, and open seats introduced in place of the old square pews. In 1891 a peal of six bells was placed in the tower, the three old ones being sold towards defraying the cost. These three old bells bore the inscriptions: (1) Richard Candlin, Johm Davies, Churchward., 1656. (2) John Gittins, 1676, Gregory Bowker, Churchwardens. (3) Abr. Rudhall, Gloucester, Bellfounder, 1717.

In the Chancel are two marble tablets, one to the memory of " Ann Knox, born at Donmore, 16 November, 1781" died at Shrewsbury, May, 1. She was fifth daughter of Sir Robert Staples, Baronet, and wife of George Knox, fifth son of Thomas, Viscount Northland. She left three sons, Thomas, Henry, and George. The friend who is commissioned to mark the spot which shelters her remains cannot execute this trust without attesting to her exemplary virtues, and how sincerely and deeply she is lamented by her Husband and surviving friends." The second is to the " Rev. John Wingfield, son of Thomas and Alicia Wingfield, and forty years Vicar of this parish. He was born Aug. 1, 1755, married Martha, daughter of Charles Gardiner and Martha Humphriss, and died Sept. 8th, 1830."

In the churchyard are buried Dr. R.W. Darwin, father, and several sisters of Charles Darwin.

The Rev. R.W. Eyton in his " Antiquities of Shropshire" says that the advowson of Montford had passed to the Convent of St. Leonard, or White Ladies, near Tong, in the 13th century, but

iv. MONTFORD REGISTERS.

whether by the grant of a Fitz-Alan or a De Lacy he could not discover. They, however, possessed this advowson soon after 1291. In 1341 the Assessors stated that the revenues of Montford, and therefore of the Convent, had been diminished owing to a murrain among the sheep, and a great flood of the Severn, which had destroyed most of the growing corn. According to the Valor of 1535 the rents of Montford produced £8 per annum, but out of them the Convent had to pay a pension of 10s. to the Prior of Hereford. Eyton mentions the following Vicars, among others, as presented by the Convent:- W. de Redenhull, on the death of R. de Audla, in 1331; Richard Morys, on the death of Redenhull, in 1342; Robert de Wythington, on the death of Morys by the pestilence, in 1349; John de Brehull, 1373; and he ends with Sir Richard Hamon, who was appointed 1397 and resigned in 1418. Thomas de Pleidewyke, Vicar of Monford, exchanged with Adam Kay, Vicar of Lilleshall, Aug. 18, 1376; Adam Osborne resigned Moneford for the living of Chetton, Aug. 10, 1388. John Brown was Vicar in 1535.

The Religious Census of 1676 gives the inhabitants over 16 years of age as 204 conformists and 1 non-conformist.

In August, 1485, the Earl of Richmond, afterwards Henry VII., encamped with his army on Forton Heath, not long before the Battle of Bosworth.

Montford Bridge, in this parish, was the scene of many parleys between the Welsh and English; e.g., on March 27, 1241, a Royal Writ was issued by Henry III. "de ducendo David, filium Llewellin, quondam principis usque Moneford ad recipiendum justiciam," and again on May 3 " the bridge of Moneford beyond Shrewsbury" was the appointed place for the meeting of David and Henry III.'s Commissioners. In the Civil War, Embledon (Ensdon) House was garrisoned in order to command the Bridge, a post of great importance to Shrewsbury while it remained to the Royalists, and Oswestry was Parliamentarian. The present structure was to a great extent built by French prisoners during the Napoleonic Wars.

The present Vicarage at Montford was built about 1842 by the Rev. G.A. Clive. The Rev. J. Wingfield had episcopal sanction to reside at Shrewsbury, his Vicarage house at Montford being in a ruinous condition. It stood on the opposite side of the road, S.W. of the Church, and was taken down, and a new building erected in its place, by the Rev. W. Clive for his curate in charge, the Rev. R.M. White. This house was, however, removed when the present Vicarage was built on an altogether new situation on the glebe.

Miss Burne, in her Shropshire Folk Lore, tells an amusing story of the parish clerk and psalm-singer of Montford.

The Parish Register Abstract of 1831 gives this account of the Montford Registers:-

" Montford V. Nos. I., II., Bap: 1661-1775; Bur: 1661-1783; Marr: 1661-1753. No. III., Bap: 1776-1812; Bur: 1784-1812. No. IV., Marr: 1754-1812."

For the earlier extracts from the lost Register, 1573-1661, we are indebted to the kindness of the Rev. E.R.O. Bridgeman, Vicar of Blymhill.

Of the existing Registers, Vol. I. begins March 23, 1661-2, and ends Dec. 21, 1774, it contains Burials, 1662-1680; Baptisms, 1661-1774, and Marriages, 1662-1754; and measures 15 inches by 7, and is of parchment. Vol. II. contains Burials from May 28, 1746, to Oct. 26, 1783, and is of paper, measuring 8½ in. by 7. Vol. III. contains Baptisms from Feb. 17, 1755, to 1812, and Burials from Oct. 3, 1783, to 1812, and is of parchment, measuring 14½ in. by 11½ in. Vol. IV. is the ordinary paper Marriage Book and contains entries from Sept. 20, 1755, to May 19, 1812; it measures 15½ by 9½. There is now no Register of Burials between 1680 and 1746, though Vol. I. contains a few such entries concerning Infants.

Of the names mentioned, the following seem to have been important families in the 17th century, for they are styled " Mr." or " Gent.", viz:- Onslow (1663); Morris (1664); Sandford 1665); Winford (1665); Goring (1666); Stanton (1668); Hanmer 1675). The Cole family, according to deeds temp. Charles II., were possessors of considerable property in Montford and Forton, when Robert Cole, of Salop, gent., claimed his father's estates there. His father, Edmund Cole, had been M.P. of Shrewsbury in 1520 and 1523, and Bailiff 1537.

viii. MONTFORD REGISTERS.

The follcwing appeared in the Notes and Queries Column of the " Shrewsbury Chronicle," Sept. 22, 1899. It is taken from one of the lost Registers

I had lent to me some time ago a MS. book in which was the following Declaration, signed by the residents in the Parish of Montford: and recorded in the Parish Register of that place:- W. Phillips.

FROM THE PARISH OF MONTFORD.

" I, A.B., in humility and reverence of the Divine Majestic declare my hearty sorrow for my own sins and the sins of this nation which have deserved the calamities and judgments that now ly upon it; and my true intention is to endeavour the amendment of my owne wayes: and that I abhorre and destest the said wicked and treacherous designe lately discovered; And that I never gave, nor will give, my assent to the execution thereof, but will, according to my power and vocation, oppose and resist the same, and all other of the like nature; And in case any other like design shall hereafter come to my knowledge I will make such tymely discovery as I shall conceive may best conduce to the preventing thereof. And whereas I do in my conscience believe that the forces raysed by the two houses of Parliament are raised and continued for their just defence of the true Protestant religion and liberties of the Subject, against the forces raised by the King; I doe heer, in the presence of Almighty God, Declare, Vow, and Covenant, That I will accord-ing to my power and vocation assist the forces raised and continued by both houses of Parliament against the Forces raised by the King without their consent; and will likewise assist all other persons that shall take this oath in what they shall do in pursuance thereof; And will not directly nor indirectly adhere unto, nor shall willingly assist the Forces raised by the King without the consent of both houses of Parliament. And this vow and covenant I make in the presence of Almighty God. the Searcher of all hearts, with a true intencion to perform the same as I shall answer at the great day when the secrets of all hearts shall be disclosed.

" Mar. 5. The New Church, blessed be God for it, was opened, rebuilt by that ingenios Architect, Mr. William Cooper,
Jun., of Salop, the Foundation thereof being laid on May ye 19th, Ascension Day, in ye Presence of several trustees
hereafter mentioned, namely, Mr. Joseph Muckleston, of Salop, Mr. Edmund James, Rector of Shrawarden, Mr. Henry
Withington, Steward, & the Vicar, who were twice at Stafford upon their own Expence to Examine Accounts, & receive Moneys
collected by Brief granted for that Purpose, Mr. Henry Hammer was once there on his own Cost, but was prevented by
Sickness from a second Journey, whereupon Edwd. Evans, of Monford, Churchwarden, went, but charged it on ye Parish. The
Boak is now in the Hands of the Vicar. The Honourable Henry Bromley, Esqre., Lord of the Mannor, gave Ten Guineas towards
the Altar piece, wch. we gratefully remember. The Number of Briefs laid were 9,804, wch brought in £619 3s. 11½d. Their Salary
at 10d. within ye Bills of Mortality at London, & 5d., all other places, was £208 0s. 5d. The Patent ffees were £85 5s.
2d. Ballance £325 18s. 4½d., wch. we paid to Mr. Cooper, but his additional work, as appear'd by Bill, besides what was
mentioned in Articles of Agreement amounted to more Money, wch. he generosly forgave & had our hearty thanks.
