Withington Registers.

WITHINGTON is a parish 6 miles east from Shrewsbury and 5 miles west from Wellington, in the diocese of Lichfield, rural-deanery of Wrockwardine, and hundred of South Bradford. It contains 1144 acres ... population in 1881 was 259. In 1676 there were 91 "conformists" above ... of 16 in Weithington which shows that the population has increased in 200 years

The Parish Register Abstract. 1831. contains this note of the Withington Registers:- "Withington P.C., Nos. I-IV Registers. 1592-1812".

The earliest volume consists of 33 parchment leaves, 10 1/2 inches by 4 1/2 inches, in a torn parchment cover. Some leaves have been been cut away; many have been mach stained with some brown liquid that has been applied to them, to bring ... faded ink. Although the register is generally well written, it is very difficult to decipher. It contains entries of baptism from 1591 to 1700, burials from 1592 to 1721 and marriages from 1592 to 1712, each class separately, and at ... of the book marriages from 1701 to 1713.

Volume II consists of 15 leaves of vellum, 14 inches by 5 1/2 inches, in a parchment cover. It commences in 1713, and contains entries of baptisms and burials to 1784, and of marriages to 1753. The entries on the last page are arranged in columns which are headed - "yeare of youre Lord; months and days; The persons names; marriages; births; baptised; burials". From 1716 to 1726 the entries are in a beautifully-printed handwriting; the rest of the book is in various hands, Roger Kynaston's to 1731, then in the handwriting of Edward Vaughan, William Grascome, and Corbet Browne, a good deal of the register being in an illiterate hand.

Vote III contains 24 vellum leaves, 13 1/2 inches by 8 inches, in a leather cover, lettered "Whithington, 1784." and 21 of these are written on. It is generally well written. and in good condition. The entries from 1784 to 1788, 1792 to 1794, and three Browne entries in 1803 and 1805, are in the handwriting of Corbet Browne. From 1789 to 1792, and 1794 to 1808, they are in an illiterate hand, perhaps the parish clerk's. From 1808 to 1812, Richard Pitchford made the entries.

Volume IV is the usual printed form of marriage Register, and contains 54 entries of marriage from 1754 to 1812. It is a paper book, in a parchment cover.

The principal families that occur in the register me those of Crompton, Maddox, Tayleur, Whitingam, and Holbrook, all styled "Mr." or "gent.". Other families of interest are Kylvert, Grosvenor, and Blakeway.

The incumbents whose names occur in the register are as follows:-

1654-84. James Smith.
17..-31. Roger Kynaston.

iv. WITHINGTON REGISTERS.

1736-45. William Grascome, M.A., Queen's College, Oxford; also rector of Upton Magna.

These curates occur in the register:- Edward Vaughan, 1731-33; Robert Tench, 1758; Richard Pitchford, 1809-11; William Macdonald Honyman (now 5th Baronet), 1850-52.

In 1602, Edward Schofield, B.A., occurs curate of Withington, and is described as being "a preacher", with a stipend of 9 per annum.

Withington Church was a Chapel of Upton Magna, ... existing at least as early as 1150. The present Church, which is dedicated to St. John the Baptist, was re-built in 1874. It consists of chancel, nave, north porch, and western tower. On the north wall of the tower is a brass to John, son and heir of Sir Robert Onley of the city of Coventry, who died 19th June, 1512, and Joan his wife, also a group of seven sons, ... arms of Onley and the City of Coventry. On the south wall is a brass to Master Adam Graffton, "the most worshipfull prest lyvyng in hys days", chaplain to King Edward V. and Prince Arthur, Warden of Battlefield College and Dean of St. Mary's, and parson of Withington, who died 24th July, 1530. Grafton was rector of Upton with Withington in 1494. There are also tablets to the Rev. Corbet Browne and various members of his family.

The patronage of Withington is vested in the rector of Upton Magna, and these two churches have frequently been held by the same incumbent.

At Domesday, Fulcuius held Wientone of Earl Roger ; on his death his estates escheated to the crown. Withington was afterwards held by the Haughtons. The Rev. George Wm. Corbet of Sundorne Castle, is the present lord of the manor and patron of Upton Magna and Withington.

The present transcript was made by Mr. T. R. Horton, ... since been collated with the original register by the Rev. W.G.D. Fletcher, F.S.A., who has also seen the proof-sheets as they passed through the press. It is now printed by kind permission of the Rev. W.A. Meakin, the present Vicar of Withington.
