Extracts from the Parish Register

The Bride register begins in 1698

The Rev Philip Moore’s (Rector 1760-88) epitaph to his wife is the only thing of interest

Let no man violate the bones
Beneath these three adjacent stones,
So will he well avoid the curse
Of sacriledge, or something worse.

The commonest surnames are Kneen, Kneale, Lace, Teare, Callow, Christian, Crennel, and Corlett.
