Neenton Registers.

Neenton, in Domesday Book called Newentone, is a township and parish, about six miles south-west from Bridgnorth, in the diocese of Hereford, archdeaconry of Ludlow, and rural deanery and hundred of Stottesdon. The area is 1140 acres, and the population was 141 in 1881, and 135 in 1891. In 1676 there were 96 persons above the age of 16, all " Conformists." Lord Rowton is the principal landowner, and lord of the manor and patron of the advowson.

The Parish Register Abstract, 1831, gives this account of the Neenton Registers:-" Neenton R. Nos. I., II., (Parchment), Bap.. Bur. Marr., 1558-1721. No, III., Bap. Bur., Marr., 1722-1812."

The first Register extends from 1558 to 1663, and consists of 22 parchment pages, size about 22 inches by 6 1/2 inches, in a parchment cover. It is in fair condition, but has suffered a little from damp. On the outside leaf is a list of briefs in 1661, much faded. The Register was evidently copied in the present book in 1598; it is in the same handwriting until that year, and each page to 1594 is signed by " John Fraunces. Curat." In 1599 and 1600 the entries are in the writing of Godfrey Smalman, Rector. In 1601, a different handwriting commences. From 1582 to 1588, the entries were not properly kept, as only four dates are given in these years; and they may have been entered in this Register from memory. With the exception of a few briefs on the cover, all the entries can be made out. Nearly half a leaf is cut off, comprising entries for the years 1606- 1609.

The second Register extends from 1664 to 1721. It consists of 11 leaves of parchment, 13 inches by 5 1/2 inches, in a parchment cover. It is much faded in places, and has suffered from damp, but is generally well written. The writing on the cover is hard to decipher. A corner of pages 12 and 13 has been torn off, containing entries for 1699 and 1702.

The third Register is a small thick quarto volume, measuring about 8 inches by 6 inches, and more than one inch thick. It contains 46 leaves of parchment, interleaved with blue blotting paper, many of which are written on, and is in boards covered with brown leather. The handwritings in this Register are as follows:- Rd. Yates, 1739-40; R. Adney. 1743-47 and 1760-67; John Purcell. 1748-60 and 1768-71; J. Purcell, Junr., 1772-87 and 1794-1812; T.M. Lyster, 1787-94. At the end of this volume is a list of the Rectors and Curates of Neenton from 1798 to the present day; also some memoranda respecting the rebuilding of the church in 1870, and various gifts to the church from that time to the present day. This Register is in good condition, and is well written throughout.

The principal family named in the earlier volumes is that of Smalman, of Wilderhope, in the parish of Rushbury, who long had a residence at Neenton, which they certainly possessed until after 1720. There are upwards of 50 Smalman entries in the Registers, amongst them the burial.

Other families of importance named in the Registers are those of Lokyer, Kynnersley, Scryven, Farnolls, and Wotmare. The Lysters are the chief family named in the third volume.

The old church was taken down in 1870, and a new church of All Saints' erected in 1870-71 at the cost of Lady Charlotte Lester and others. It is in the Decorated style, and consists of chancel, nave with south porch, and western bell-gable. The old Norman font was replaced in the church. At the east end of the church, in the churchyard, is a tombstone to the memory of Gyles Nettilby, a former Rector, who was buried here on 29 Oct., 1675. This stone was formerly inside the church, under the Communion Table, but was removed in 1871. The first church was probably erected after 1138, when the then lord of Neenton gave two-thirds of his tithes here to Shrewsbury Abbey. In 1291 the church was valued at 5 6s. 8d

Mr. R.E. Davies, who visited the former church in 1868, states that it then consisted of nave, chancel, porch, and turret with two bells. Its style was mainly transitional from Norman to Early English. There was a priest's door (pointed) of rude and irregular workmanship, and an arched recess under a window in the north wall. The chancel arch had flitted capitals. The cast window had two trefoil-headed lancets, splayed inwards into an arch. In the south wall was a piscina, with plain trefoil head in the north wall a trefoil-headed lancet, deeply recessed, with a Norman inner arch. In the north wall of the nave was a plain lancet light, and one with a trefoil head. The nave had an open timber roof, of collar beam construction and a Perpendicular south door. The seats were of oak, rude and massive.

In Edward the Confessor's time Azor a freeman held Neenton. At the Conquest it came to Earl Roger de Montgomery, under whom the manor was held by Roger de Mortemer. One Roger held it of the latter, and ultimately it passed (with Sidbury) to an heir female, Joan the wife of Ralph d'Arraz, in whose descendants it continued many years. It afterwards belonged to the Lysters, from whom it came to Lord Rowton.

The present transcript of the Neenton Registers was made by the Rev. W.G.D. Fletcher, F.S.A., who has also passed the proof-sheets through the press, and it is here printed by the kind permission of the present Rector, the Rev. John Charles Lyons.
