Ruyton-in-the-Eleven-Towns Registers.

The Parish Register Abstract of 1831 describes these Registers as follows: "Ruyton-in-the-Eleven-Towns V. No. I., Bap. Bur., 1719-1786; Marr., 1719-1753. No. II., Bap. Bur., 1787-1812. No. III., IV., Marr., 1754-1812".

The earlier Registers are said to have been burnt in a fire at the Vicarage about the middle of the 18th century. Probably transcripts will be found in the Diocesan Registry whenever it becomes possible to make arrangements for a search there. The Parish Register Abstract correctly describes the contents of the existing Volumes, which are all bound in parchment covers. On the outside of the first is the following description:- "Of the Parish of Ruyton-xi-Towns the Register of Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials altogether from 1719 to 1754. Register of Baptisms and Burials together from 1754 to 1763. Register of Burials carried on alone from 1763 to 1786. And Register of Baptisms carried on alone (begining from the other end of this book) from 1763 to 1786".

On the inside of the cover is a book-plate with a book and 3 crowns within an oval border, the name Samuel Story, and the date 1718. On the book-plate is printed "Samuel Story, Stationer at the Bible and 3 Crowns in Little St. Bartholomews, near the Cloysters by West Smithfield, London", and a list of wares sold there. Above it is written in ink "from 1612-1630 inclusive, the Rev. Wm. Blakeway"; the paper on which the sentence should be concluded is torn away. Below the book-plate is written:- "No flatt'ry here, where to be born and die
Of rich and poor is all the History:
Enough, if Virtue filled the space between
Proved by the Ends of Being, to have been".

The spelling inside the volume is not better than that outside, but the writing is generally clear and distinct, though uneducated. Many of the names still familiar in Ruyton occur amongst the earliest entries, thus in the first year, 1719, we find not only Williams, Richards, Baker, Davies, &c., which are common elsewhere, but Braddock, Gittens and Glover, which are local. Very few particulars as to age, trade, or anything else are given. No instance occurs of anyone having two Christian names until 16 Nov., 1779, when Anna Maria Baker was baptized; and they are by no means common in any of the registers now printed. On Dec. 16, 1740, Robert Roberts, "pauper et servus", was buried; the baptism of triplets is recorded 23 Aug., 1741, and there is nothing to show that

all three children did not grow up. "John Richards, Cumro", is mentioned three times, in 1741, 1749, and 1750. Cumro was evidently the name he usually went by, perhaps because he was a Welshman. Thomas Payne is described as a Collar-man in 1754 and 1758; possibly he was a saddler, and made horse collars. Weavers are mentioned occasionally; otherwise the trades which occur are those still practised, baker, shoemaker, wheelwright, blacksmith, cooper, stone-cutter.

Anne Sides, aged 100, was buried 4 May, 1764. The baptisms of a few foundlings are recorded, as on 12 April, 1776; a few children are entered as base-born; in 1753, a married woman was baptised "according to the service appointed for the baptism of those of riper years"; and in and after 1765, "christened" is distinguished from "baptized", the former term being equivalent to "received into the Church". In the nine months from November, 1775, to July, 1776, 16 persons died of small-pox.

The 2nd volume has on the outside the inscription: "Of the Parish of Ruyton-xi-Towns the Register of Baptisms from 1786 to 1813, and Register of Burials (beging from the other end of this book) from 1786 to 1813". It is very carelessly kept till about 1802, the entries being very few and irregular, and evidently often inserted some time after the event recorded. The curious Christian names occur of Gaardnier, 1787; Sinah, 1796; Anwyl, 1803. Many "base" children are mentioned and the name of the reputed father is generally entered. The age at death is generally given from 1797 onwards, but not before. The following curious note is inserted:- "Friday, May 18, 1804. On Tuesday last Mr. Read, surgeon, of Ruyton, safely delivered the wife of Thomas Rogers of the Wenn Lece in the Parish of Kinnerley in this County of two children united together".

The 3rd volume is inscribed outside: "Register of Marriages from 1754 to 1810". It was probably originally intended for a different purpose, for this inscription is later than, and partly written over, the following quotations, which are respectively from Iliad I., 7, 8, and Lucretius III., 3, 6, but have no possible connection with Parish Registers:-

'Tis thee I follow Graian Bard.

The Register of Marriages is much better kept than that of births and deaths, each marriage being entered on a printed form, in accordance with Lord Hardwicke's Act of 1754. This shows whether the marriage was by banns or license, by whom performed, and by whom witnessed. The condition of the parties is generally but by no means always given, and often the occupation of the

RUYTON-IN-THE-ELEVEN-TOWNS REGISTERS.

husband. Among these may be noticed taw-dresser, i.e., leather dresser, and cordwainer, i.e., shoemaker.

The 4th volume is similar in all respects to the 3rd and is inscribed outside:- "Register of Marriages from 1810 to 1813". On the first blank page, however, are the names "Peter Shelvocke and Richard Wilkinson, Churchwardens, 1760", and the first four marriages entered in the book are of that year. This is explained by a note in the previous volume, which says that that was mislaid for a time and a new volume (i.e., the present one) bought, but that on the old one being found the four marriages entered in the new one were transcribed into the old. The new one was again taken into use when the old one was filled up, in 1810, but was used only till the end of 1812, in which year a new form of Register was prescribed by law. Accordingly this book contains only the four marriages of 1760, and ten others of 1810 and 1812. The rest is blank.

Ruyton Church was built about 1140, as a Chapelry of Baschurch, for the townships of Ruyton and Coton only, which then constituted the whole of the Manor of Ruyton. About 1155 the Manor of Ruyton was united to the two other Manors of Wikey and Felton, the whole being called the Manor or Lordship of Ruyton, as the Castle, which was probably built at the same time as the Church, made Ruyton the most important of the three Manors. Together they comprised eleven townships, from which the Manor got the name of Ruyton- of-the-Eleven-Towns. About 1230 the Parish of Ruyton was created; but the old Manor of Felton, containing five of the eleven towns, had been included for nearly 100 years in the independent Parish of Felton, so that the new Parish of Ruyton was made to consist not of the whole of the eleven townships of the Manor but of the six not included in Felton Parish. It is for this reason that it is called the Parish of Ruyton-in-the-Eleven-Towns. A framed list of incumbents, complete or nearly so from 1325, hangs in the Church Porch, and histories of the Manor, the Church, the Borough, and the Townships comprised in the Parish, have been published in the Transactions of the Shropshire Archaeological Society for 1891, 1894, 1896, 1900, 1901, and 1902 respectively. Not much additional information is to be got from the Registers; but they show that the Vicar, William Griffiths, resigned before his death; for he was buried 2 Jan., 1720, old style, after the institution of his successor, Edward Jeffreys, 10 Oct., 1720. Also that Corbet Kynaston died at Shelvock, and was buried at Moreton Corbet, 21 June, 1740, and that William Kinaston of Ruyton was buried, 7 March, 1748. The burial at Ruyton is recorded of Richard Jeffreys, Vicar of Baschurch, 19 April, 1742, and of Mrs. Jeffreys of Baschurch, 14 March, 1774. Presumably they were related to Edward Jeffreys, Vicar of Ruyton. The Marriage Registers from 1754 give the names of the Curates and neighbouring Clergy who performed marriages at Ruyton:- John Thornes, Curate of Kinnerley, 1755; Robert Jeffreys, Vicar of Baschurch, 1758 to 1763

vi RUYTON-IN-THE-ELEVEN-TOWNS REGISTERS.

(evidently there were two successive Jeffreys Vicars); Thomas Atcherley, described as "minister" only, 1759 to 1761; J. Morris, Curate of Ruiton, 1760; William Parry, Vicar of Great Ness, 1760-1766; John Powell, Curate of Ruyton, 1760-1; Thomas Roberts, Curate, 1762-4; David Morris, Curate of Baschurch, frequently from 1771 to 1809; Thomas Frank, Clerk, 1778; David Prichard, Vicar of Kinnerley, 1779 (this was no doubt the Rev. David Prichard who built Pradoe); Peter Basnett, Minister, frequently from 1783 to 1799; David Evans, Curate, 1785-8, who became Vicar in 1788. In May, 1790, a Baschurch couple were married at Ruyton, and a note stated that this was done "Baschurch Church being down, and no duty there at present".

As from 1754 the parties married had to sign the register, we get some indications of the state of education from a comparison of the numbers of those who could write and of those who made their mark. Of the 24 persons married in 1754 to 1757 inclusive, 9 wrote their name, 15 made their mark; of 20 married in 1780 to 1782 inclusive, only 5 men and one woman wrote their names; of the 20 last on the list, 1810 to 1812, only 7 wrote their names. It is clear that throughout the whole period the great majority of the labouring class were unable to write. In 1766 the Vicar was himself married to a woman who made her mark.

The two first volumes of the registers have been transcribed by Miss Kenyon, of Hordley Rectory; the third by Rev. W.D. Craven, Vicar of Ruyton; the fourth, containing only ten marriages, by Mr. R. Ll. Kenyon of Pradoe, who has also collated the whole.
