Deuxhill and Glazeley Registers.

The Parishes of Deuxhill and Glazeley were united at an early date, when they were combined is not known, certainly as early as 1535, and perhaps much earlier. They are in the Hundred of Stottesdon, Rural Deanery of Bridgnorth, Archdeaconry of Ludlow, and Diocese of Hereford.

Deuxhill is a small Parish of 481 acres, about four miles southwest from Bridgnorth. At the Domesday Survey, Dehocsele was held by the Church of Wenlock, which continued to hold it until the Reformation. It was attached to Stottesdon Hundred in the time of Henry I., but in the time of Richard I. it was included in the new Liberty of Wenlock. The Church of Deuxhill was founded as early as 1135, by the Clunide monks of Wenlock. There was a church still standing here in 1851, built of rubble stone, and consisting of nave and chancel, and a small turret with one bell. Over the porch was the date 1688. This church was pulled down within the last thirty years, all that now remains being a portion of the north wall, with a 14th or 15th century window. The population of Deuxhill in 1903 was 49.

Glazeley is less than a mile from Deuxhill, it is about 3 1/2 miles south-west from Bridgnorth, and its area is 630 acres, the population in 1901 being 42. Its name is probably derived from the British Glas-lle, meaning green place. At the Domesday Survey, Rainald the Sheriff held Gleslei of Earl Roger de Montgomery, and Azo held it of Rainald. It afterwards passed to the family of Le Strange, under the Barony of Fitz Alan; and the family of Pierrepoint, afterwards called de Glazeley, held it under le Strange.

There was probably a church at Glazeley in the 11th century, as Domesday Book mentions a priest there. In 1851 the church was a brick building, consisting of nave and chancel. The present church of St. Bartholomew was erected in 1875, on the site of the old church, in the early Decorated style, and consists of nave and south porch, and chancel with organ-chamber and vestry on the north side. There is a fine brass, with effigies of Thomas Wylde, Esq., who died in 1599, and his wife Elizabeth Cooke, with four sons and two daughters. There is also a tablet to Edward Wilde, 1695.

John Wylde, Sergeant-at-Law, of an ancient Worcestershire family, which had possessed Eudon Burnell and the advowson of Chetton since 101, was patron of the Rectory in 1637; and the patronage continued a considerable time in his family. In 1759, the Rev. C. E. Wylde, then Rector, united the Rectories of Glazeley


and Deuxhill with that of Chetton, and they have since been held together. In 1798, the patronage was vested in Valentine Vickers and others. In 1851, Thomas Whitmore Wylde Browne, of The Woodlands, was Lord of the Manor of Glazeley. The present lord and patron of the Rectory is T.M. Southwell, Esq., of Bridgnorth. The value in the King's Books is 2 12s. 4d. In 1676, there were in Glazeley and Deuxhill 34 Conformists above the age of 16, no Papists and no Nonconformists. In May, 1553, there were at Glazeley "Two bells of accord and a chalyce wt. a patent of sylver bytwen them and Deuxyll".

1905. James Shepherd, the present Rector of Deuxhill and Glazeley, and of Chetton.

Amongst the Curates named in the Register, R. Wylde occurs in 1797, and Charles Fewtrell, 1795 and 1798-1807, and W. Vickers in 1812.

The Parish Register Abstract of 1837 contains this account of the Registers:- "Deuxhill and Glazeley P.C. No. I. (three pages), Bap., Bur., Mar., 1655-1668, 1694-1719. No. II., Bap., Bur., 1736 -1769. Mar., 1736-1812. No. III., Bap., Bur., 1770-1812. No. IV., Mar., 1768-1812". This account is substantially correct.

Volume I. is a small parchment book, not in good condition. It contains entries between 1654 and 1720 in this order:- 1718- 1720, 1660-1668, 1654-1659, 1694-1717. Volume II. contains 9 parchment leaves, 7 3/4 inches by 5 3/4 inches, in a parchment cover, and extends from 1736 to 1769. Volume III. contains 13 parchment leaves, 8 inches by 5 3/4 inches, in a stiff parchment cover with flap. At the end are entries of six baptisms at Loton in the years 1804 and 1805. Volume IV. is the usual printed form of Marriage Register, on paper, 14 1/2 inches by 9 3/4 inches, in parchment cover with flap. It contains entries of 23 marriages and 2 banns, between 1768 and 1812. The last three volumes are well written and in good condition throughout.

There are no very important entries in the Registers. In the earliest volume, the families of Wylde, Hensloe, Kynnersley, Cole, Spencer, Wheeler, and Hassold are termed "esq." or "gent."

The present transcript was made by Mr. T.R. Horton, and it was collated with the Registers 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. James Shepherd, the present Rector of Deuxhill and Glazeley.
