Onibury Registers.

ONIBURY is a parish five miles north-west from Ludlow, on the river Onny, from which it derives its name. The village is pleasantly situated on the east bank of the river, but portions of the village to the south-east arc in the parishes of Stanton Lacy and Stokesay. It comprises the townships of Onibury and Walton; whilst Wootton, in thc ecclesiastical parish of Stanton Lacy, is included in the civil parish of Onibury. It is in the hundred of Munslow (lower division), rural-deanery and archdeaconry of Ludlow, and diocese of Hereford. Its area, including Wootton 544 acres, is 2,534 acres. The population in 1811 was 359; in 1831, 438; in 1841, 368; whilst in 1911 it was 451 in the civil parish, and 357 in the ecclesiastical parish.

In Saxon times the Bishop of Hereford was lord paramount of Aneberie, and at the Conquest Roger de Laci held it of the Bishop. Domesday says that three hides paid geld. In demesne there was one team, and there were four whole villeins and six half villeins, and a priest, and one cottar with three teams. There was one serf. A knight held there one hide, and had one team and five villeins. In King Edward the Confessor's time there were in this manor nine teams, and it was worth 40s. annually; now it is worth 20s. Onibury was the Bishop's only manor in the Domesday Hundred of Culvestan, which in Henry I.'s time became merged in the new Hundred of Munslow.

Roger de Lacy was the son and heir of Walter de Lacy, an old companion in arms of the Conqueror, who enfeoffed him with Stanton Lacy, Stokesay, and other manors. Roger gave the tithes of Aneberie to Shrewsbury Abbey about 1093-4, and was banished the following year. Henry I. confirmed Roger's grant. His brother Hugh de Lacy was the next mesne lord of Onibury, and held a knight's fee under the See of Hereford. On his death his estates were forfeited to the Crown, but were restored by Stephen to his nephew Gilbert de Lacy. He died in 1163, and was succeeded by his son Hugh de Lacy, a distinguished soldier, who enfeoffed William de Wootton with the manors of Onibury and Wootton, before 1175. His son Robert de Wudeton (or Wootton) was a prominent man; he was a collector of the Subsidy in 1233, and a Justice for gaol delivery in 1234. In 1243 he conceded to the Abbot of Gloucester the right of free-chace and free-fishery throughout his lands in Wootton, Onybery, and Walton. He left a daughter and heiress, Amicia, who became the wife of Robert de Lasey. The Inquest of 1255 states that Robert de Lasey held Walton and Oniburi of the heir of Walter de Lacy; he did suit to Munslow Hundred, and paid 3s. for stretward and motfee, as on three hides. In 1256 he conveyed by Fine virgate in Walton to Walter de Strangford. In 1271 he was deceased, and his widow Amicia married Thomas de Grete. In 1284 Thomas de Grete held Oneburi and Wallon of the lords of Ludlow for half a knight's fee. Amicia married for her third husband William de Schippeye, who in June, 1293, joined with her, and her son Roger Grete, in conveying the manor and advowson of Onibury, and Walton and Wootton, to Philip Burnell.

Philip Burnell died in 1294. In 1316 his widow Matilda Burnell is stated to hold the manor of Onibury and Walton in dower. The Inquisition taken on the death of Philip Burnell states that his son Edward, then aged seven, was his next heir. On Edward's death the manor passed to his sister Maud, who married Lord Lovel, in whose family it remained until John, Lord Lovel, was attainted in Henry VII's

reign. It was subsequently held by the family of Mainwaring. In 1615 Sir George Mainwaring sold it to Sir Richard and Sir Thomas Barker; and about 1620 it was purchased by John Craven, esq., who was created in 1642 Lord Craven of Ryton. He died without issue in 1650, when his estates passed to his brother William, Lord Craven, in whose family they continued for about 200 years. In 1869 the third Earl of Craven sold the manor and advowson of Onibury to John Derby Allcroft, esq. The trustees of his son Herbert John Allcroft, who died in 1911, are the lords of the manor and patrons of the advowson of Onibury. Stokesay Court, erected by Mr. Allcroft in 1887, is now occupied by Mrs. Rotton. Mr. Allcroft served the office of Sheriff in 1893.

The following persons were assesscd to the Subsidy of 1327:-

OUNEBUR' ET WALTONE. John de Handlo (he married Maude Burnell, who became heiress of the Burnell estates in 1315), Thomas de Strangolfe, William le Neowemon, William de Huggel'g, Henry Shyr', John Welym, Elias Bysshop, William Bole, Thomas Welym, John de Padmor, John Coco, Henry son of Peter, William Pouk', Jul' Jones, Roger de Mappenor, and the sub-taxers John Lellow and William le Graunger.

In 1523 the following persons paid to the Subsidy for Onibury:-

In lands: Alen Carpenter, Edward Carpenter, Hugh Carpenter, Margaret Acherley widow, William Bawlle, Richard Norton, Thomas Borton, Richard Daywes, Edward Marten, Walter Holland, William Slade.

In 1545, William Slade, Richard Norton, Henry Skyner, and Margery (or Margaret) Acherley were assessed. (Lay Subsidy, Salop, 37 Henry VIII., 166-182 and 187.)

In 1598, these were assessed:-

There was anciently a Park at Onibury, which is now divided into several farms, and retains its name in the Park Farm. There was an ancient stone bridge of three arches to the west of the parish, near to Onibury Bank Farm. A stone bridge over the Onny was completed in 1835, but was washed away by the flood in 1886. An iron bridge has now taken its place. In 1613, George Norton of the Seete bequeathed by his Will xxs. "towards the reparation of the Bridge leading over the river Ony called Oniburei bridge".

Wootton Hall was an ancient moated mansion of considerable extent, built in the 17th century, and long occupied by thc family of Walker. It was sold to Lord Craven, and taken down about 1850. Thomas, 2nd Lord Folliott, lived here, and died in 1696. His daughter and coheir Rebecca Folliott married in 1683 Job Walker of Wootton, and their second daughter Rebecca Walker married in 1718 Humphrey Sandford, of The Isle. The Walkers of Wootton were an old family, and entered their pedigree at the Visitation of 1663. According to a pedigree drawn up by Roger Dodsworth and enlarged by Randle Holme in 1661, they traced their descent back to Thomas Walklegar, who was living temp. Henry III. Francis Walker had a grant 20 December, 1660, of these Arms: Gules a cross ragule between four lions' heads erased argent crowned or.

ONIBURY REGISTERS. v.

Another old family was that of Neve. They trace their descent from Titus Neve of Wootton, who died in 1645. Many of his descendants were in Holy Orders. The family is now represented by Colonel Edward John Neve, lord of the manor of Tettenhall, who is eighth in direct lineal descent from Titus Neve.

THE CHURCH.

The Church is dedicated to St. Michael, and consists of nave with south porch, chancel, and embattled western tower. A priest is mentioned in Domesday Book, and probably there was a Church in Saxon times. The chancel is 12th century, with Early English priest's door and lancet windows on the east and south walls, and it is nearly as long as the nave. The piscina has a deep basin, and stone shelf. The chancel arch is semi-circular, and ornamented with zig-zags, pellets and beads, and is probably Norman, though it may be Saxon. The nave, which has no aisles and no clerestory, is 14th century. The tower is very plain, and is probably decorated. The south porch, which dates from the 14th century, has a wooden trefoil arch. The font has an octagonal stem supporting a circular basin. Much of the detail of the Church was covered with yellow wash and hidden. [1] In 1903 the Church was carefully restored under the direction of Mr. William Weir, architect, of London, at the cost of 922, which was defrayed by H.J. Allcroft, esq., the patron. The walls of the tower were found to be in a serious condition, and badly cracked. The porch had become detached from the wall of the nave. On removing the yellow wash, some traces of paintings on the surface of the plaster wcre brought to light. On the south wall of the nave are two consecration crosses. The pulpit is of 16th century construction, and under the gallery are some 17th century oak pews. There are four bells in the tower. The second and third bells are 14th century, and have the inscription in gothic capitals:- "Ave Maria gracia pkena (for plena) Dominus tecum". The fourth bell is by Henry Clibury of Wellington, and has the names:- "John Wellings Thomas Wellings Churchwardens 1676 H.C.". The treble bell was also dated 1676 prior to 1824, when it was recast by Rudhall, and it now has the inscription:- "The Revd. H.R. Berkley Rector T. Wells & P. Bach C. Wardens 1824. Rudhall Fect.". [2]

The Church Goods Return of 1553 has this entry:- ONEBERE, 15 May, 7 Edward VI. Wyllyam Wodde curet, Wyllyam Acheley and Larence Persse cherche wardense. (Remaining) iiij bellys one chalys of Selver wt the paten ther to belongynge. William Wood. (Exch. Q.R., Church Goods, Salop, 8-17, m. 28.) In 1740 there were also four bells.

The Rev. Edward Williams, who visited the Church in 1794, noted the monumental inscriptions (Add. MS.. 21,237, fo. 106)-

On the south wall of the Chancel: A Brass to Dorothy Pytt, wife of E. Pytt, who died on Good Friday, 1657.

On the north wall of the Chancel: Elizabeth, wife of John Allat, gent., late of Shrewsbury, chamberlain of the said Town, died November 14, 1781, aged 81.

vi. ONIBURY REGISTERS.

William Hardwicke's MSS. also mention other monumental inscriptions to:-

Rev. Henry Prior, Rector, died 3 December, 1756, aged 57.
Thomas Parsons, died 1749. Edward Parsons, gent., died 1803.
Jeremiah Pryce, gent., died 1821.
Clara Mary, wife of John Lasbury, and daughter of Charles Wollaston, died 17 September, 1814, aged 30.
Charles Wollaston, esq., died 30 September, 1821, aged 70.
Two sons of Captain Joseph Baker, R.N., died 1826 and 1827.
Lord Folliott, who lived at Wootton Hall and died there, was buried at Onibury, 4 February, 1696.

There is a marble tablet on the north side of the nave to the Rev. John Julius Hodges, 44 years Rector of Onibury, who died 21 June, 1890, aged 82; and a brass to J.D. Allcroft, esq., 1905.

The Communion Plate consists of a silver paten, date 1731-2, inscribed "P. Newborough. Rector"; a silver chalice, date 1867-8, inscribed "J.J. Hodges"; a plated flagon, chalice, and paten; a chalice of white metal; a small brass chalice and paten, the interior being poorly plated; a pewter flagon, and three pewter alms dishes. The Register records that a chalice and a pewter flagon were stolen on 28 March, 1783.

The Rectory was valued in the King's Books at 8 17s. 8d. Hardwicke states that the Rectory House was built about 1750. It had about 90 acres of glebe attached to it.

The benefice was usually exempt from taxation, on account of its poverty: instances frequently occur between 1425 and 1513. But in 1505 it was assessed at 6s. 8d. to an aid granted to the King.

The patronage of the Rectory was long vested in the Burnells. In 1430 Sir John Radcliff and his wife were patrons. Then the Lovells appointed. Sir Roger Savage was patron in 1509. In 1639 John Craven presented, and the patronage continued in his family until 1869, when it was purchased by John Derby Allcroft, in whose family it still continues.

WILLIAM NORTON'S SCHOOL.

Onibury had an early parochial School, which was founded and endowed by William Norton, citizen and stationer of London. By his Will dated 27 August, 1593, proved in the P.C.C., 1594, he charged his messuage and lands in the parish of St. Sepulchre without Newgate, London, with the yearly payment of 6 13s. 4d. to the schoolmaster of Onibury "who should teach and instruct children in good letters in the said parish", for his better maintenance. This money was regularly remitted by Christ's Hospital to the churchwardens, except during the Great Fire, when for a while payment was suspended. The schoolmaster was to be elected by the governors of Christ's Hospital. The Charity Commissioners stated in 1819 that the schoolmaster's salary was made up to 12 from parish funds, with the privilege of taking pay scholars. The master was then a shoemaker by trade, and had neglected his school, which had then dwindled to ten free scholars and five or six who paid.

As early as 1591, the burial of "Thomas Bushop schoolmaster", occurs in the Register, and he was succeeded by "Richard Churchman, school-maister", who became Rector of the parish in 1603. The school, which stood at the south-east corner of the churchyard, was built by subscription in 1836. The present school was erected in 1871, and enlarged in 1893, for 135 children.

William Norton (born in 1527) was one of the six sons of Richard Norton of Onibury, whose Will was proved at Hereford in 1559. by his wife Jane Pyeres. She by her Will in 1575 begs her son William to give to her parish church of Onibury one book which is there lacking known by the name of the paraphrases of (torn off) or Masculus, whichever it shall please him to bestow, so that he give of the largest volume. William Norton was Master of the Stationers Hall in 1581, 1586 and 1593, and Treasurer of Christ's Hospital. He married Joan daughter of William Bonham of Colchester, and had an only son Bonham Norton, born 1565, of London and Church Stretton, Sheriff in 1611. He was buried in St. Faith's Church in the Crypt of St. Paul's Cathedral, and, in addition to his endowment of the School, he left 40s. each to the poor of Onibury, Ludford, Ludlow, Stottesden, and Cleobury Mortimer, in all of which parishes he owned property.

x. ONIBURY REGISTERS.

The pedigree of Norton was entered at the Visitation of 1623; and recently in the books of the Herald's College in 1911. The Arms of Norton of the Sete in the parish of Ludford appear in Additional MS. 21017, fo. 7, and a fresh coat was granted to Bonham Norton in 1611.

The six sons of Richard Norton of Onibury, whose Will is dated 20 May, 1559, were:- Edward of Woodbatch, John of Onibury, George of the Sete, Richard of Billingsley, Thomas, and William of London (founder of the School).

THE REGISTERS.

ONIBURY R., No. I. Bap., Bur., Mar., 1577-1730; (1670-1673, 1692-1725, partly illegible.) No. II., Bap., Bur., 1731-1770; Marr., 1731-1754. No. III., Bap., Bur., 1771-1812. No. IV., Mar., 1755-1812". This account is accurate, except that the entries for the years 1771 and 1772 are missing. They are, however, here supplied from the Bishop's Transcripts at Hereford. The Marriage Register extends from 1755 to 1801, and another Volume from 1801 to 1812.

Volume I. is a book of 77 parchment leaves, size 15 by 6 1/2 inches, in a cover of parchment, part of which is torn off on one side. There are evidently many years missing at the beginning of the Register, there is no heading as is usual. It begins now in May, 1577, and ends in 1730. It contains an interesting list of moneys collected on Briefs from 1661 to 1672. It is in good condition, except from 1672 to 1674 and from 1692 to 1725.

Volume II., which extends from 1731 to 1770, consists of 18 parchment leaves; size 12 1/2 by 7 inches, in a leather cover. The years 1771 and 1772 are lost, but are here supplied from the Bishop's Transcripts.

Volume III. consists of 18 parchment leaves in a leather cover. It begins in 1773 and ends in 1812.

Volume IV. contains 12 paper leaves of Marriages, 1755 to 1800, on the usual printed forms.

Volume V. has 3 paper leaves of Banns and 4 leaves of Marriages, 1801 to 1812.

The Marriage Register 1813 to 1837 is also printed here, and contains entries of 61 Marriages.

From 1813 to 1837 there were 378 baptisms and 221 burials at Onibury, but these Registers are not printed here. Civil Registration began on 1 January, 1838.

The most important families named in the Register are those of Herbert, Baugh, Winwood, Dyke, Churchman, Folliott (an Irish Peer), Walker, Savage (a knightly family), Allen, Slade, Baldwyn, Acheley, Burton, Neve, Norton, Wood, Wisham, Piers, and Jennings.

The Registers were transcribed some years ago. The proofs have been very carefully collated with the original Registers by the Rector, the Rev, T.L. Carpenter, who has also himself transcribed the Marriage Register, 1813-1837, and the Briefs. They are now printed with his consent.
