Tong.

Tong Registers.

Tong is a parish of 3,539 acres, in the Brimstree hundred, containing in 1891 a population of 445. In the will of Wulfric Spott in 1004 the name appears as Twonga, and in that of Wulfgate of Donington, in the early part of the eleventh century, as Tweonga. Before the Conquest the Manor belonged to Morcar, the Saxon Earl of Northumberland, but it was then included in the grants made to Roger de Montgomery. His son, Roger de Belesme, forfeited it by rebellion to Henry I, who bestowed it on Richard de Belmeis, afterwards Bishop of London. The Bishop was succeeded by his nephew, Philip, who in 1138-9, gave his estate at Buckley Grange to the Cistercian Abbey of "St. Mary and St. Chad of Buildwas", and, in 1143, land at Lizard Grange to the Regular Canons of Anemia, "for the foundation of a Church in honour of the Holy Mary, Mother of God", an institution which afterwards became the magnificent Abbey of Lilleshall, whither the monks removed. The early history of this parish cannot be better told than in the words of the Rev. R.W. Eyton, in his Antiquities of Shropshire (vol. p. 191): "Tong was for centuries the abode or heritage of men great for their wisdom or their virtues, eminent either from their prosperity or their misfortune. The retrospect of their annals alternates between the Palace and the Feudal Castle, between the Halle of Westminster and the Council Chamber of Princes, between the Battlefield, the Dungeon, and the Grave. The history of the Lords of the Manor is in part the biography of Princes, and Prelates, Earls and Barons, Statesmen, Generals and Jurists. These are the great names and reminiscences with which the place is associated: the Saxon Earls of Marcia, brave, patient, and most unfortunate victims of inexorable progress; then their three Norman successors, one wise and politic, another chivalrous and benevolent, the last madly ambitious and monstrously cruel; then the Majesty of England represented by Henry I; then the sumptuous and vice regal pride of De Belmeis; his collateral heirs with their various and widespread interests; the adventurous genius and loyal faith of Brittany represented in La Zouch; overwhelming ambition and saddest misfortune chronicled in the name of De Broase; a Harcourt miscalculating the signs of his times and ruined by error; a race of Pembruge, whose rapid succession tells of youth and hope and the early grave; then the open-handed and magnificent Vernon; lastly, Stanley, a name truly English and ever honourable in English

ears, yet for one of whom it was fated to cut short the associations which five centuries had grouped round his fair inheritance".

For after having been transmitted by heirship for so long, Tong passed by purchase to Sir Thomas Harris, Bart., whose daughter carried it to the Pierreponts, afterwards Dukes of Kingston, the last of whom, in 1764, sold it to Mr. George Durant,, M.P. for Evesham, 1768-74. Finally, in 1855, the estate was bought by the Earl of Bradford.

There was a Castle at Tong in 1098, possibly situated on the mound now called the "Castle Bill", for in Fulke de Pembruge's time (circa 1320) mention is made of land called the "Olde Castle". Leland, writing about 1530, says: "There was an olde Castel of stone caullid Tunge Castel. Syr Henry Vernoun* a late daies made it new al of Brike". Of its fate in the Civil Wars, Symonds notes in his diary: May, 1645. Tong Castle. First the King had it; then the rebells got it; then Prince Rupert tooke it and put in a garrison who afterwards burnt it when he drew them out to the battaile of York"(i.e., Marston Moor).

The fire, however, only injured the East wing. On Mr. Durant purchasing the property, he re-built and altered it to the present structure of mixed Moorish and Gothic architecture.

Of Roger Montgomery's Norman Church, which he founded and gave to Shrewsbury Abbey, nothing is left. The South Aisle of the present building may be referred to the thirteenth century, and may have been the nave of an older church, but all the rest, except the Golden Chapel, was raised in 1410 by Elizabeth Pembruge, in memory of her husband, Sir Fulke. Having purchased the advowson, she proceeded to erect a new building and to found a College for a Warden, four Priests, and two Chaplains. The College was also to maintain thirteen poor, seven of them too infirm to help themselves. One of the chaplains was to have the care of the parish, and the other to teach the servants of the College, and the children of Tong and other neighbouring towns, reading and singing. The College building stood on the south of the Church, just outside the churchyard, till the beginning of this century, and in dry summers the lines of foundation can still be easily traced.

In 1510, Sir Henry Vernon built the chantry, now called the Golden Chapel, and subsequently gave the big bell of 58 cwt. The Church was thoroughly restored in 1892.

At the Dissolution of Monasteries there were great changes in ownership. Ruckley Grange, as belonging to Buildwas, was granted to Edward Grey, Lord Powis; Lizard Grange, as belonging to Lilies-hall, was sold to James Leveson, of Wolverhampton; the appurtenances of Neachley Grange, the farm of White Ladies, which were in the parish of Tong, went to the Giffards; and the whole of the possessions of Tong College (valued in 1535 at £22 8s. 1d. per annum) was

bought by Sir John Manners for £486 4s. 2d. He, in 1545, sold the site and buildings for £200 to John Wooleitch, whose heirs subsequently parted with them to William Pierrepont, of Tong Castle. With the exception of Ruckley, which now belongs to Lieut.-Col. Sir E.L. Durand, Bart., C.B., the Right Hon. the Earl of Bradford is the owner of the whole parish.

On August 10th, 1654 Charles H encamped with his army at Tong Norton, before his defeat at Worcester, and on September 4th enjoyed the hospitality of Hubble Grange after it..

In 1676 the Religious Census of the inhabitants of Tong over sixteen, was 153 Conformists, 13 Papists, and no Nonconformists; the proportion of Roman Catholics to the total population being higher than in any other parish in Shropshire. The Pendrills of Hubble, and the Forsters of Ruckley would, however, account for this.

The Church (which, as Charles Dickens himself told Archdeacon Lloyd, is the one pictured in the "Old Curiosity Shop"), has been called the Westminster Abbey of the Midlands. For it contains monuments to Sir Fulke Pembruge (1409) and his wife Elisabeth (1446); Sir Richard Vernon (1451) and his wife Benedicta; Sir Henry Vernon (1515) and his wife Ann (1494); Richard Vernon (1517) and his wife Margaret; Humphrey Vernon (1542) and his wife Alice (1531); Sir Thomas Stanley (1576) and his wife Margaret; Sir Edward Stanley (1632); and Ann Wylde (1624); and brasses to Sir William Vernon (1467) and his wife Margaret; Ralph Elcock (1510); Arthur Vernon (1517); Lady Elisabeth Daunsey (1549), and William Skeffington (1550).

After the Reformation, the Minister of Tong sank into the domestic chaplain of the Castle, and at the present time the income of the living includes £14 in lieu of diet and lodging at the Castle, and £6 in lieu of pasturage of a horse in the Park. The Vicarage was built in 1725, and the Minister had then a more independent position.

A full account of the Parish will be found in Mr. George Griffiths' History of Tong and Boscobel, and of the Church in the Rev. D.H.S. Cranage's Architecture Account of the Churches of Shropshire, part 1.

preservation, and legible throughout. The other three Volumes are in perfect condition, the entries of the Rev. Thomas Hall from 1730-65 being almost copper-plate in clearness. Volume I measures 15 in. by 7, now consists of 30 pages, begins May 19, 1629, and ends Dec. 27, 1718; Vol. II measures 14 in. by 6 1/2, contains 23 pages, begins July 23, 1718, and ends July 26, 1756; III is 11 1/4 in. by 7 1/2, contains 29 pages, begins Aug. 22, 1756, and ends Dec. 12, 1812. These three are all of parchment. Vol. IV is the ordinary printed form, 13 in. by 9, begins April 9, 1755, and ends Sept. 28, 1812. The most important names to be found in the Registers are those of the owners or tenants of the Castle, i.e., Harris, Pierrepont, Willoughby, and Durant. In the seventeenth century, the families of Salter, Scott, and Lateward, are styled "Mr." or "gent.", and were therefore of considerable standing in the parish. The Marrions, who were freeholders at Tong Norton till quite recently, are mentioned among the earliest entries, and the same may be said of the Duncalfes, who occupied a similar position at Tong. The Pendrills and Fosters, being Roman Catholics, are not alluded to in the Registers, though their names are found in Parish papers in the Church Chest.

The Donington Register mentions George Steenton, of Hobble Grange, husbandman (1556); Thomas Haryson, of Tongue (1568); Thomas Terrye, of Tongue, husbandman (1590); Roger Whystan, of Buckley, in the parish of Tongue, husbandman (1597); and Richard Poole, of Tong, husbandman (1599). The Albrighton Register: John Morris, of Tong (1602). The Will of John Peynton, of Tong Norton (1579), gives the names of Thomas Clarke, of Lizard Grange; Robert Barbur, of Norton; John Walker, of Tonge; Ralphe Peynton, of Norton; William Rudge, Curate of Tong; Thomas Peynton, Curate of Norton, etc.

The Registers were copied by the Rev. J.E. Auden, and the proofs, as they passed through the press, were compared with the originals by Mrs. Auden and Miss Philbrick.

March ye 14th, 1716/7. It began to snow at 5 a'clock in ye afternoon;
and without any intermission continued till noon ye 16th. Though a
strong wind blew all ye while, yt drove ye snow into hollow Places to
so great a height as to make ye roads altogether impracticable, yet
was ye snow upon ye level in ye garden behind ye Castle found at
least 13 inches deep, and sixteen in ye court before it. It did snow
again and freeze excessive hard all ye next night, and ye night
following. A vast number of sheep were buryed under ye snow 20 or 30
and more of ym together. The sheep yt lay buryed five or six daies
escaped, but those which continued longer under were found dead. So
great a snow in so short a time, and in a season so far advanced had
never been seen by any body in ye Parish. It occasioned, as it had
done ye year before, a mighty bright Meteor in ye air, in ye night,
some few daies after it had wasted away.

Sept. ye 10th, 1717. The Moon happened then to be totally eclipsed at
six in ye afternoon; but ye weather proving foul at yt very time, ye
Eclipse was hardly perceived.
