Wistanstow Registers.

WISTANSTOW is an extensive parish, lying partly in the hundred of Purslow, and partly in the hundred of Munslow. That part of the parish which belongs to Purslow hundred contains the townships of Wistanstow (the western part) and Woolston, and Cheney Longville. The townships of Wistanstow (the eastern part), Felhampton and The Grove, Strefford and The Marsh, and Whittingslow, are in the hundred of Munslow. It is in the diocese of Hereford, archdeaconry of Ludlow, and rural deanery of Bishop's Castle. The parish contains 5,231 acres. The population in 1801 was 586, in 1841 it had increased to 1,051, and at the census of 1911 it had dropped to 907. It is situated on the river Onny, two miles north from Craven Arms station, six miles south from Church Stretton, and ten miles north-east of Ludlow. The Roman road the Watling Street from Uriconium (Wroxeter) intersects the parish, and divides the hundreds of Purslow and Munslow. From Wistanstow it branched one road towards Ludlow, another, still called Watling Street, to Leintwardine (Bravinium), and a third towards Knighton.

Paleozoic rock of the Precambrian, Ordovician and Silurian systems strike right through the parish from north-east to south-west. Across these through the Horderley gorge the river Onny cuts its way, exposing a most interesting and classic section of these various formations; it leaves the parish at Newington, near Craven Arms. Two other streams, the Quenny from Marshbrook, and the Byne brook flowing under the Wenlock Edge join at Strefford and enter the Onny at Grove.

Wistanstow derives its name from St. Wistan, a Saxon Saint, the grandson and heir of Wiglaf, King of Mercia,- he was treacherously murdered here A.D. 349 by his cousin Brithfard; and the terminal " stow," which means in Anglo-Saxon an enclosed place.

Before the Conquest Wistanstow was one of the ancient possessions of St. Alkmund's Church. King Edgar the Peaceable (959-975) endowed the Church with ten Prebends, one of which consisted of Wilfrescote, More, Mersse, Effechot, and Wistanestowe, containing four hides, and the Church of Wistanestowe. King Edward the Confessor gave this Prebend to Godric Wiffesune, on whose death Earl Roger gave it to his physician Nigel.

Domesday states that Nigel the physician holds Wistanestou of the King. It was a manor of four hides, and there was land sufficient for fifteen ploughs. Seven villeins had seven ploughs, and a Frenchman had the mill which rendered five quarters of corn. The manor was worth twenty shillings. Nigel found it waste. In King Edward's time it was of the provision of the Canons, and Spirtes a priest held it of St. Alkmund. Spirtes was a Canon of Bromfield, and was a special favourite of Harold I. and Hardicanute, but for some offence not known Edward the Confessor banished him, and gave his Prebend to Godric.

On Nigel's death this Prebend was given, at the request of Earl Hugh, to Gilbert de Cunedore for a short term; but he wrongfully withheld it from the Canons, and was excommunicated and publicly whipped by them. It then came to Pagan the Sheriff, on whose death Roger, Earl of Hereford, Pagan's son-in-law, seized it. Helyas de Say, Lord of Clun, bought it from Earl Roger for thirty marks, and about the year 1150 alienated it to Baldwyn de Stapleton. A Composition was entered into in 1188, by which the whole Manor or Prebend was vested in Philip de

iv. WISTANSTOW REGISTERS.

Stapleton, the Canons of Lilleshall (who had succeeded to St. Alkmund's), having only a pension of 40s. out of the Church. William Fitz Alan, about the year 1200, quit-claimed all his interest in Wistanstow to Lilleshall Abbey, and about twenty years later his son John Fitz Alan confirmed his father's charters to the Abbey. The Stapletons still continued to hold a moiety of the manor under Lilleshall Abbey. The other moiety was long held by the de Sibbetons under the Fitz Alans. In 1346 John de Sibbeton held " half Wystanstowe." The Fitz Alans continued to be the overlords, until the middle of the eighteenth century.

Hardwicke maintains that there are two distinct manors in the township of Wistanstow; the western manor in Purslow hundred, containing 501 a. 1r. 11p., and the eastern manor in Munslow hundred, containing 86 a. He states that the eastern manor belongs to the rector in right of his Church, being the only instance in this County where the rector is lord of the manor which comprises his glebe land only. This glebe land was attached to St. Alkmund's Church under the name of the Prebend of Wistanstow, and was held under St. Alkmund's by Spirtes. The Domesday record, however, seems to mention but one manor, which at a late period, as is clear from documents cited by Eyton, was divided into two moieties, which were held by the Stapletons and de Sibbetons. Moreover the glebe land is not equivalent to the four hides of Domesday.

The manor passed to the family of Boerley or Burley, who were lords of Broncroft Castle. John de Burley lived at the Manor House (or Burley Hall), and was Knight of the Shire; he died in 1415. His son Sir William Burley, Knt., Speaker of the House of Commons, succeeded, and died in 1470. He left two daughters and co-heiresses. His Wistanstow estate passed to his younger daughter Johanna, the wife of Sir Thomas Littleton, K.B., author of the Treatise on Tenures. On her death in 1505, her second son Richard Littleton of Pillaton became lord of the manor; he died in 1529. Wistanstow then passed to the Bulkeley family, and at a later period to the Stackhouse Actons. On the death of Thomas Pendarves Stackhouse Acton in 1835, his devisees sold it to James Cartwright, who became lord and resided at the Manor House. It afterwards was sold to William Phillips, who died 1866; he left it to Abigail Price, on whose death in 1919 it reverted to the Phillips family, whose representatives have now sold it to Mrs. H. D. Greene of Grove. The manor house is an interesting stone mansion, with two gables in front.

CHERRY LONGVILLE, formerly called Longfield, before Domesday belonged to Siward, a Saxon, but was given by William the Conqueror to Earl Roger. The Earl gave it to Siward, in exchange for the site of Shrewsbury Abbey, but Siward gave Langafeld back to the Abbey, reserving only a life interest. At the Domesday Survey, Languefelle was a manor of 1 hides. There was land for seven ploughs. One villein and three bordars held two ploughs. The manor was worth 5s. William Rufus confirmed Siward's grant to the Abbey. The Monks gave Longfield to Henry de Say, Baron of Clun, in exchange for Brampton. In 1165 Roger Fitz Eustace held it. In 1240 Roger Waudin (or le Engleys) held the manor. In 1315 Roger de Cheyney was the lord, and the manor continued in his family for 200 years. From the Cheneys it passed to the Howards, and from them to the Plowdens. In 1682 John Talbot of Longfield purchased it for 1,375. In 1739 John Talbot conveyed it to Peregrine Widrington of St. James', Westminster, who sold it 25th September, 1745, to William Beddoes of Cheney Longville. On his death it came to his son Thomas Beddoes, whose descendant William F. Beddoes, Esq., of Minton, is the present lord of the manor. The Duppa family also held land here. The township contains about 800 acres. A pack of hounds was kept for many years, but was given up in 1876.

Cheney Longville Castle is a stone building, standing within a moat half of which is now destroyed. There is an outer moat with a fish-pond on the south-east side. On the north-east an embanked lake, now drained, formed the chief defence. The remains of the castle are built up into the present farm-house. There is said to have been anciently a Chapel at Cheney Longville, and " Chapel Lane " is still existing, but no trace of any buildings remain.

Cheney Longville Circle is a defensive enclosure, girded by a vallum only, which rises six feet from the interior, and has a steep escarpment eight feet in height. There are two opposite openings at the north and south sides.

There was another moated enclosure in the parish of Wistanstow, the Upper-Barn Moat, which lies nearly a mile north-west of the Church. It is a quadrangular enclosure, 166 feet by 148 feet, with an entrance at the north-west angle. It belonged to St. Alkmund's, and afterwards to Lilleshall Abbey, and was constructed to protect their grange and produce. There is also a moat at Wistanstow Rectory; it was of quadrangular form, and its remains are plainly visible to the north of the house. The Rectory has also a dovecot of brick, and the nesting places still remain.

WOOLSTON is a small village, a mile north of Wistanstow, containing about 772 acres. At Domesday it was called Wistanestune (perhaps Wlstanetune), and was held by Picot de Say, and two knights held it under him. It was a manor of two hides, and there was land sufficient for eight ploughs. There were six villeins and a priest, and three bordars and a radman, with four ploughs; and it was worth 20s. Spirtes, a priest, had held it in Saxon times, as a lay-fee. Picot's descendant Isabel de Say, married William Fitz Alan, and brought Woolston into her husband's family. It was held under the Fitz Alans by two co-parceners, together with Edgton and Brunslow, which three manors constituted a knight's fee in the Barony of Clun. These co-parceners were the families of fitz Hameline (or de Edgton) and St. Lawrence (also called de Edgton); and Woolston, under the names of Wlfreston and Wolureston, is frequently referred to in old records as being held by these two families, from 1165 to 1397. Of its subsequent history I have no record. In 1850 the Rev. S. J. Knight was the principal landowner in Woolston. The whole of the Woolston property is now owned by Mrs. H. D. Greene.

FELHAMPTON was always a member of Wistanstow, and belonged to the FitzAlans. In 1255, John de Stepleton held Feldhampton of John Fitz Alan in villeinage. In 1316 the Earl of Arundel is named as the lord of the wills of Feldhampton and Marsh. In 1327, the following inhabitants of Feldhampton were asssesed to the subsidy: Nicholas Yuttes, Philip Nicholes, Thomas Hannyes, Richard Rotar', Thomas Hobbes, and Adam Peote; the sub-taxers for Felhampton, Whittingslow, Strefford, Hope Bowdler, Acton Scott, and Alcaston, were Adam de Possethorne, William le Forester, Walter Baret, and Richard Smyth. The subsequent history of this place is bound up with Wistanstow. In 1850, Felhampton belonged to the Earl of Craven, Mrs. Frances Thursby, and Francis Marston. It is now owned by J. Dale, Esq.

AFFCOT, anciently Effechot, was in Saxon times a member of the Prebend of Wistanstow, and was held by the Canons of St. Alkmund. In 1274 William de Affecot appears upon a Ludlow jury. In 1316, Richard, lord of Affecot, gave to his son Roger, and to Joan, daughter of Roger de Leynthale, all his lands, tenements, and the whole lordship of Affecote. Walter Bareth, named above, was a witness to this deed. Joane, lady Littleton, was lady of this manor at her death in 1405. It afterwards passed to the family of Grey de Wilton. In 1495, Reginald,

vi. WISTANSTOW REGISTERS.

Lord Grey de Wilton, died seised of Afcote. At a later date it came to the Marston family, who long resided here. Francis Marston of Cheney Longville purchased Affcote from his sixth cousin Edward Marston of Affcote. In 1850, Francis Marston was lord of Afcote. The manor-house is an Elizabethan structure, and has the arms of Marston. In the Pigeon- House field is an artificial mound, 15 to 20 feet high, and within it a stone wall. The Affcot property is now owned by Mrs. H. D. Greene.

Felhampton and Affcot form one township.

GROVE, otherwise Ormsgrove or Armsgrove, anciently belonged to Lilleshall Abbey. Then it came to Lord Craven. Thomas Lloyd occupied it, and afterwards Edward Urwick. From the Lloyds, it passed by purchase to Mr. John Jones, who rebuilt the house, which was enlarged and beautified by the late H. D. Greene, Esq., K.C., and it is now the property of Mrs. H. D. Greene, who resides there.

STREFFORD is a small village and township, a little north of Wistanstow, containing about 372 acres. At Domesday, Straford was held by Rainald the Sheriff, and Azo held it under him. There were two hides, and there was land for four ploughs, but it was waste. In Saxon times Elmund held it, and it was worth 30s. From Rainald the over-lordship passed to the Fitz Alans, under whom the family of English (Anglicus) held it. Gilbert English held it in 1165, and Baldwin his son in 1176. Hugh English, lord of Strefford and Marsh, died in 1248-9. His son John le Engleys was dead in 1272, leaving a son and heir Hugh, who in 1284, is recorded as holding the vill of Merse and Schereford for one-fourth of a knight's fee under Richard Filz Alan. About 1284 Martin Brend of Streford bought some land here from Hugh le Engleys, who also sold certain rents to Bishop Burnell. In 1318, Philip Brende granted a messuage in Streford to John de Sibbetone, who twenty years later settled it on Hugh his son. In 1327 John Borewey, Margery the widow, and Philip de Affecot, were assessed to the Subsidy. From the Fitz Alans the manor passed to Lord Lovel, on whose attainder it came to the Crown. It was afterwards granted to Lord Craven, and has since remained in his family.

An old tradition says that three refugees from the Battle of Bosworth,- Marston, Urwick, and Harrington, settled and established families in this neighbourhood. Marston settled at Strefford, Urwick at Felhampton, and Harrington at Church Stretton.

THE MARSH (Mersse or La Merse) was in Saxon times part of the Prebend of Wistanstow, but detached therefrom and annexed to Fitz Alan's manor of Strefford. Hugh Anglicus, lord of Marsh, died in 1248-9, leaving a son John under age. In 1284, Hugh le Engleys held the vill of Merse. Later it was held by the Marsh family, and since by the Leightons. Edward Leighton was living here in 1431. After the death of the last Richard Leighton of Leighton, The Marsh passed to Lettice, wife of John Hayne of Uttoxeter, the fifth of seven co-heiresses. She died in 1755, and her son Richard Hayne succeeded. On Richard's death, The Marsh went to his son John Hayne (who died in 1812), and then to another son William Hayne of London (who died 1818), and on his death to his brother Thomas Hayne. The House was built in the time of Charles II. for John Leighton. The Marsh contains 402 acres. Marsh Mill and certain other lands passed from the Leightons to the More family, by the marriage of Thomas More with Margaret Leighton; and afterwards to General Dudley Ackland, by his marriage with Margaret, daughter and coheir of Thomas More. Then it was sold to Thomas Gibbons of The Marsh; then to - Bickerton; and afterwards to Richard Bowen. The Marsh property, until recently, belonged to the late Prebendary R. J. Hayne.

WHITTINGSLOW was in Saxon times held by Leofric, Earl of Mercia, together with Minton. At Domesday these two manors, Munetone and Witecheslawe, were of four hides, and were held by Earl Roger, who made them parcel of his manor of Stretton. In the time of Henry I. Whittingslow was separated from Stretton, and was annexed to the Manor of Montgomery. At the close of the 12th century it belonged to Walter Fitz John in right of his wife Richildis, the heiress of a family which had held Whittingslow under the Lords of Montgomery. He was the ancestor of the Upton family, who also held lands at Waters Upton. In 1240, Nicholes de Opton and his co- parceners held half a knight's fee in Wittokeslawe under William de Cantilupe. In 1273 George de Cantilupe died seised of the manor of Wittokeslawe, which passed to his sister Milisent, wife of Endo la Zouche. The manor continued in the family of Zouche of Haryngworth for at least a century later. In 1327, Reginald son of William, John de Alghamston', William Baderych, William Crate, Richard de Mersh, and William Rend, were assessed to the Subsidy, in respect of their estate in Whyttyngges Lowe. Thomas Cooke owned Whittingslow in 1703, and his son Robert Cooke devised it to several persons. The Mintons held the manor, and from them it descended to Thomas Beddoes. In 1850, Messrs. W. M. Beddoes, John Mier, J. Broom, and Thomas Beman were the principal landowners.

THE CHURCH.

Dr. Cranage says of Wistanstow Church, " there is a good deal of interest in this small cruciform church, and a few of the architectural features are of real beauty."* In its general appearance it is like Church Stretton. It is dedicated to the Holy Trinity. It consists of chancel, nave, and transepts, and a massive central tower; and it was mostly erected from 1180 to 1200. In the 14th century, the upper stage of the tower was added, and the tower arches beneath were rebuilt. Its roof dates from 1712. The chancel contains its three original lancet windows in the east wall, an original Transitional window in the north wall, and in the south wall a 14th century window and doorway, which is " an excellent piece of Transitional work "; the roof dates from 1630. The nave has no aisles, but there is a fine 14th century roof, and a mediaeval southern doorway, with the remains of a stoup, and old ironwork on the door. The roof of the north transept is original, more than 700 years old; that of the south transept is probably of 14th century work, and its walls are covered with early 17th century mural paintings, which were long hidden by whitewash, but were restored in 1877-8. The font is a small round basin, on a plain octagonal stem, and is of 14th century construction. Some repairs were done to the Church in 1630, 1712, and 1800-1802. It was restored under the direction of Mr. S. Pountney Smith in 1873-4. The south porch was erected in 1877-8, a lychgate in 1887, and the vestry and organ chamber added in 1895. The glass in the east windows forms a memorial to the Rev. Christopher Swainson and his wife. Other glass is a memorial to members of the Hoggins family, to Miss Hilda Greene, and Mr. J. Rickards. The oak pulpit was erected by Miss Rosamund E. Hoggins as a memorial to her brother William Hoggins of Ludlow. A memorial brass was placed in 1919 on the north wall of the nave to Wistanstow men fallen in the late war; also a tablet to the memory of Jack Davies of Wistanstow who was reported missing.

There are eight bells in the tower. In 1553 there were three bells. In 1758 a peal of six bells was cast by Rudhall. In 1903 the tenor bell, which was cracked, was re-cast, and two new bells added, the founder being Barwell, of Birmingham.

The Inventory of Bells and Plate returned in 1553 is as follows: " WYSTONSTOW. 15 May, 7 Edward VI., Francis Bowden, parson, William Blocke, Thomas Simcokes, cherche wardense. [Remaining] iij bellys one chalys of selver wt. the paten ther to belongynge. By me, Frau'cis bawdwyn, clercke."

The present Communion Plate consists of a 17th century cup, with " Wistanstow " engraved round the bowl, and a paten on the foot of which is engraved a cross, I.H.S., and sacred Heart pierced with three nails. On both are the letters " R.B." Another silver-gilt chalice and paten was presented by the Rev. J. G. Swainson.

It was purchased from them by the Swainsons. In 1909 the Rev. J. G. Swainson devised the patronage of the Advowson to his second cousin Prebendary Albert John Swainson, who at his death in 1918 left it to the Bishop of Hereford.

John Mousell charged his lands in Mainstone with the payment of 10s. yearly to the poor of the parish of Wistanstow, which sum is annually expended in the purchase of Bibles.

THE REGISTERS.

The Parish Register Abstract of 1831 contains this information about the Registers: " WINSTANSTOW R., No. I. Bap., Bur., 1687-1800; Marr., 1687-1753. No. II., Bap., Bur., 1801-1812. Nos. III., IV., Marr., 1754-1812."

By the kindness of the Rev. W. M. D. La Touche, a copy is here given of an earlier lost Register, extracted by him and his brother from the Bishop's Transcripts at Hereford, for the years 1638 and 1661 to 1687. It is most fortunate that the entries for these twenty-six years have been preserved, and they add considerably to the interest of the Register.

Volume I. of the existing Registers is a parchment book, size 14 by 8 inches, in a parchment cover, and extends from 1687 to 1800, marriages to 1754. It is in fair condition.

Volume II. contains entries of Baptisms and Burials from 1801 to 1812. It is a book 14 by 9 inches, in leather boards, and is in good condition.

Volume III. contains entries of Marriages and Banns from 1754 to 1809. It is a volume in leather boards, size 11 by 9 inches, and is in good condition.

xii. WISTANSTOW REGISTERS.

Volume IV. is a book of the same size, in leather boards, and contains Marriages and Banns from 1810 to 1812.

Wolume V. contains Marriages from 1813 to 1837, and is one of Eyre and Strahan's Registers. It is a paper book of 100 pages in a parchment cover, size 15 by 10 inches, and contains 300 entries, of which only 154 are filled up. The officiating ministers have entered marriage. with " consent of friends " or " of parents " throughout. It is noticeable that, out of the 154 marriages in this book, in 100 entries one or both parties signed with a mark.

The most important entries in the Registers are those of the families of Marston. Beddoes, Urwick, Bright, More, Phillips, Adney, Duppa, Lloyd, Jordan, Holland, Guest, Amiss, &c.

Besides the Registers, there arc also Churchwardens' Accounts for 1661, and 1733-1757; Overseers' Accounts from 1771; Bastardy Accounts, 1822-1832; and Apprenticeship Indentures from 1790-1815.

The Registers from 1687 to 1812 were transcribed by Mr. T. R. Horton; and the proofs as they passed through the press were collated with the original Registers by the present Rector. The Marriage Register 1813 to 1837 was transcribed and collated by the Rev. W. G. D. Fletcher. The Registers are now printed with the kind permission of the Rev. W. M. D. La Touche; and the cost of printing has been partly defrayed through a generous donation given by Mr. Charles Marston of Wolverhampton. Thanks are due to the Rev. E. R. O. Bridgeman, who kindly permitted the MSS. of the late William Hardwicke to be consulted; and to the Rector for very considerable help given in the preparation of this Introduction.
