PREFACE.

HE Registers of Saddleworth Church are very defective Wl to the year 1720, many of the entries being illegible, and whole pages discoloured by damp, the parchment varying from dark brown to yellow, it being evident that in the past they had been carelessly kept. (See Note, page 116.) The arrange- ment of the text, being very complicated, has not been followed, as it would have caused great inconvenience to the reader. The headings and entries are copied ‘‘ verbatim et literatim,”’ and all interpolations are in brackets. The Registers have been compared with the copies at the Chester Diocesan Registry, and all varia- tions noted; a number of complete years, some of an earlier date than those in the Church copies, were found and inserted. The notes referring to Wills are extracted from the Record Series of the Yorkshire Association (marked W.S.), and the Lancashire and Cheshire Society (marked W.C.). The Short- hand in the Supplement has been partially deciphered, and was found to be unfit for publication. The Vestry Meetings show the names of those who interested themselves in Church affairs. The Lists of Marriages at Rochdale and other Churches, and the Burials of persons born before 1751 (collected from the grave- yards within and adjoining this Township) are included, to bea help to genealogical enquirers. The Appendix is a collection of fragmentary information-from various sources, for the purpose of elucidating the Registers, and making the book of a more inter- esting character to the general public. The Keys to the Indexes, showing the varied ways of spelling the names, are given to enable persons to consult them with greater ease. My thanks are due to the Rey. Hugh Doig, the vicar, for the unvarying kindness he has shown during my labours; to Mr. John Gamon for permission to ' copy the lists at Chester; Mr. Edward Pocknell for his perseve- rance in deciphering the Shorthand and his note explaining it ; also to the Rev. Canon Eagar, Lieut.-Col. Fishwick, Mr. John _ Owen, Mr. Giles Shaw, Mr. Samuel Andrew, Mr. John E. Tinkler, and Mr. W. H. Price for the kind help they have rendered me.

On Tuesday sen’night was married, at the Parochial Chapel of Saddleworth, Abraham Brooks, a Widower, of about 30 years of age, to Mary Bradley, a Widow of near 70, but as the Bride was a little in Debt the Bridegroom obliged her to be married in her shift, and the weather being very severe threw her into such a violent fit of shaking as induced the compassionate minister to cover her with his coat whilst the marriage was solemnized.— (Prescott’s Fournal, February 12, 1774).—Canon Raines’ M.S., vol. 11.,

I200 CIRCA.

Chaplain in the Chapel of Saddleworth occurs in a deed of William de Stapleton, granting the Tithes of Forest. (See attest- ation, Thomas Clericus, in the appendix).

ROBERT CLERIC

attests a Grant of Land in the Forest of Sadilworth, by Richard Ruffus, of Stayley or Staveley, to Ralph, his brother. A Clerk before the Reformation was not a priest, or deacon, but a Minister, Acolyte, or Lay Clerk, properly so called. The Minister was the Parochus, who was always in full orders.

1535. Dom. WILLIELMUS TAYLOR,

Curate of Sadelworth, & assessed to the Subsidy in that year. The Chantry Priest of Sadylworth in the same year was Dom. Elize, or Ellis Ashworth.

The Chaplains of the Chantries in a Parish Church were required to attend the daily Mass in the Choir previous to its celebration in the particular Chantries. They were never Theo- logians, nor fond of direct exhortations, yet they daily did the special duties of their calling.

1539. JOHN SHAWE, or SHAPPE, & PATRICK PRESCOTT,

Chaplains of Saddleworth & Butterworth. In the computus of the late Abbey of Whalley, 30-31, Hen. VIII., 1539, is an entry of :—One sum of {10, from the Receiver of Whalley, was paid to the above.—Rev. T. D. Whitaker, History of Whalley (1876), Vol. 22., p. 418. 1548. Dom. THoMAs HAWKER.

He is returned ‘‘mortuus”’ at Bishop Birds’ Visitation, in 1548, & the two Priests of Sadleworth are Dom. ROBERT RADCLYFFE, Dom. RICHARD MERCER.

1556-7. Dom. ROBERT RADCLYFFE,

answered the Bishop’s call as Incumbent of Saddleworth in 1556-7. He was afterwards Headmaster of Rochdale Grammar School, 1565. Richard Mercer was his Curate. Each Priest had his assistant Deacon & Sub deacon, to assist in celebrating daily for the dead, but how they were remu- nerated for these services I have not discerned. The Chantry Priest’s Stipend was 5 Marks, or £3 6s. 8d., & the mode, time, & place of celebration were all for the most part enjoyned by the founder.

1556 Mr. GEORGE HUNTCOTE, - Curate of Saddleworth. He was there VI. Eliz. (1563).

1565. MR. JOHN YATTS, or YATES,

Ordained Subdeacon & Presbyter circa 1542, at Cest™ Also of Whitworth, Parish of Rochdale, clearke made his will on the 13" June, 1574, which was proved at Chester on the 13" July in the same year; he desired to be buried in the Parish Church of Rach- dall, & the only bequest in his will is VIS unto the poorest fokel in wordle,* and probably few would be found poorer than himself.—Prccope’s Chester Wills. On the 12 of Oct., 1552, the King’s commissioners, Trafford, Holcroft, & Holt, Knts., delivered for the King’s use, to John Yate, Priest of y° chapell of Whitworth, one chales, one vestment, and auter clothes.—Lancashire Church Goods, Exchegq. 3-52.

1570, May 5. ROBERT FARRAND,

Clerk of Saddleworth. In the 18" Eliz. (1575) the Attorney Gen- eral prosecuted, in the Court of the Duchy of Lan™ Robt Farrand, who claimed to hold from Sir Jno. Byron, Knt., Lesee of the Arch- bishop of Canterbury, Common Pasture on lands, late parcel of the Chappell of Sadleworth. He was probably the same man as the clerk.— Ducatus Lancastria, vol. 1tt., p. 39.

1583. Mr. JOHN WILD,

Minister of Saddleworth. He was the son of Mr. Wild, of Cow- lishaw, near Shaw, where his family still reside. He died about the year 1691, leaving by his will a number of small bequests.

[COPY OF WILL.] On the 23d of December, in the 35'" of Elizabeth (1592), John Wilde, Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ at Saddleworth, in the county of York, being sick, made his last Will, and after de- siring that his body might be buried in the Chancel of his Church, proceeds to say—‘‘ Whereas I have taken of the Worshipful Sir John Byron, over and besides a Lease taken of Edmund Heyward and Robert Farrand, of Lands now in my own tenure, a Lease of Lands and the reversion for twenty-one years afterwards, and acknowledging mine own manifold defects and wants, in the per- formance of my duty in Word and Doctrine to the People, and in token of my true Repentance for the same, and from my unfeigned love to the People, and zeal for better promoting of God’s glory, I give the benefit of all the said Leases to a godly Preacher, to be provided and nominated to succeed me in my room by Mr. Midgley (Vicar of Rochdale), and Mr. Hunt (Minister of Oldham) while they live, and after their decease by the discretion of the best disposed in Religion in the Parish of Saddleworth ; provid- ing always that six sufficient men of the People of Saddleworth, or the godly Preaching Minister so succeeding me, shall deliver into the hands (within one week after my decease) of my two bretheren in the Parish of Oldham, to pay in one year unto Otti- well Wild, my younger brother, £20, for the use of John Wild, his son, to spend in books and learning, both in the country and at one of the Universities of Cambridge or Oxford. And I will that if six sufficient men, or the preaching Minister succeeding me shall not enter into a Bond to pay the same, then my said younger brother shall enter upon and enjoy my said Farms until the expi- ration of the two Leases and the reversion, which I have freely given for the maintenance of a godly Preacher at Saddleworth. And, whereas, I do hold my aforesaid Farm under my Right Worshipful good Master, Sir John Byron, a special favourer of Religion, I humbly beseech his good worship to be an effectual

means to the accomplishment of this my good meaning, for the better preferment of God’s glory at Saddleworth, and not only during this term specified, but always after, as long as his Worship or his heirs shall have the Lease of the Tithes, now in his occu- pation. I give to the Poor of Saddleworth one ‘ Oxe stirke,”’ I which I will to be sold, and the money given as aforesaid. To Mr. William Ramsden, to Mr. John Ramsden, four hoops of corn ; to James Scholfield, iij* iv* ; and to his son Robert, all my Books save one Bible, which I give to Edward Marsland ; to Giles Shaw, one Edward Shilling; to my brother, Ottiwell Wild, of Cowly Shaw, a pair of bed-stocks; and I appoint him my Executor.” There are numerous other small legacies. The effects consist chiefly of cattle, corn, hay, books (valued at 16%), and wearing apparel.—Proved at Chester, on the 17 January, 1592. (Gastrell’s Notitia Cestr., vol. 1, part 1, page 144.) His Nephew was afterwards Minister of Milnrow, and not like his uncle an active Puritan, but clearly a Churchman of Laud’s School. I 1603. Mr. JOHN Morris,

Minister of Saddleworth. He was Curate of Ashton-under-Lyne in 1598 (Reg. Bk.) Mr. John Buckley, of Manchester (a Roch- dale man), preacher at the Collegiate Church, Manchester, of the Puritan School, by Will dated 26 June, 1593, bequeaths to Mr. Morrisse, Preacher at Ashton-under-Lyne, ‘‘ Luther: his enarra- tions uppon the Epistles & Gospells.”” In 1608, Morris became Vicar of Blackburn, and died 1631, 26 Oct. 1 Jac. (1603). He attested the Will of his parishioner, Mr. Gilbert Buckley, of

Grotton Hall.

1609, Nov. 14. MR. WILLIAM PARKYNSON,

Clerk of Saddleworth. (See Baptisms for 1616, signed Jac Savage.—].R.)

1627 CiRCA. MR. CRANAGE,

Minister of Saddleworth, occurs in 1627. He may have been the Clerk Licensed by Bishop Bridgeman to serve the cure of Sadle- worth Chapel, 21 March, 1627-8.—Bridgeman Lueger ; Gastrell’s Notitia Cestr, vol. 11, p. 145; Subscript.

1635, Feby. 12. Mr. WILLIAM WILSON, Minister of Saddleworth. He was resident.

1644, May 9. Mr.*JoHn Hopkins,

of Saddleworth. He was a Writer of Wills, and an authority in matters requiring a knowledge of Law.

1647. Mr. HENRY Morres,

Curate of Saddleworth. Probably afterwards Minister of Burnley. The oldest remaining Register Book at Sadw* are in his hand- writing. 1648, May 3. Mr. WALKDEN. Probably a Schoolmaster, and educated at Middleton School, being a son of Mr. Walkden, Rector of Radcliffe. In 1828 the Iron frame (with the Date 1650) for the Hour Glass still remained fixed on the right of the curious Oak Pulpit. The Glass was gone. It was apparently put there in the time of this Incumbent. He kept the Register Books, which date from his institution, or that of his predecessor. It was an Old Custom, continued to 1828, for the Congregation to rise and continue standing when the Lord’s Prayer occurred in the Lesson, and after the Minister announced the Gospel fromthe Altar, the Congregation responded ‘‘ Thanks be to God for his Holy Gospel.” I never noticed this anywhere else. Walkden had been inclined to the popular views, and had countenanced Presbyterianism and old John Heywood.

1654. Mr. RALPH Woop, B.A.

He was Licensed by the Presbytery to Saddleworth 1654. He was here in 1662, and Calamy says he was, for a time, remarkably peremptory against Conformity. Afterwards he conformed and became a vain and debauched character.—Nonconf. Mem., vol. 111, .76. He married 2™4 Alice, 4" daughter of the Rev. John Chadwick, M.A., Rector of Standish, by his 2"¢ wife, Elizabeth, daughter of John Ashworth, M.A., Rector of Warrington. She was baptised at Rochdale, 20th Feby., 1630, and buried there 27 April, 1662, with issue (See Manchester Collegiate Church Marriages at the end of volume.—J. R.) . Notwithstanding Wood’s great zeal for and against Presbyterianism, Old John Heywood, of Saddleworth, in 1658, had ‘‘trudged” about the ‘‘ Monthly Exercise” there for more than 40 years, and Mr. Angier,* Mr. Newcomeft and others had encouraged the Spirit the Lord had put

upon him. He died about 24 August, 1662, when his work was quite routed by the silencing of all those who had upheld that exercise.—Newcome’s Autobiography, vol. 1., p. 88. Mr. Wood resigned Saddleworth and became Incumbent of Ripponden, April 6, 1664, where he was buried Feby., 16, 1696-7.—Watson’s History of Halifax, page 428. His first wife, Sarah, was buried at Sadv, Oct. 7, 1656.

1663, Dec. 21. Mr. JOHN LEEs, B.A.,

Son of Robert Lees, Ashton-under-Lyne, Yeoman. [Educated at Manchester Grammar School, admitted Sizar, St. John’s, Cam- bridge, 27 March, 1656. —Palatine Note Book, vol. iv. , p. 56.] In 1658 he was curate to Mr. Hyde,* at Salford Chapel, "also Assist- ant Librarian of the Chetham Library to Mr. Johnsone,t the learned Fellow, was licensed by Bishop Chester to the living of Dec. 21, 1663. He was resident in 1672. He lived in a Cottage near the Church, and kept a School there (tradition says in the Chancel of the Church). He was a steady, respectable Clergyman, and his name was remembered by old persons in 1828. He died an aged man at Sad*" in 1712, and left descendents. (He was said to be opposed to the rude sports and savage pastimes of his parishoners, and whilst a bull-bait, a dog fight or a Sunday battle made them happy, they were to him a source of misery, ‘‘lamentation and woe.” It was said that in his time foxes were common, others frequented the Chew and the Diggle, and Eagles were seen in the retired cloughs.—Mrs. Radcliffe, Stonebreaks, 1828.) He administered to the effects of his Mother, Mrs. Ann Lees, of Haslehurst, widow, roth March, 1673-4. [Preached at St Mary’s Church, Oldham, on Aug. 2, 1668.—Pal. Note Book, vol.1v., p. 56.]

1714, Oct. 23. Mr. JOSEPH BEIGHTON, B.A.,

Of Queen’s College, Cambridge, 1704, was nominated to the Living and Licensed by Bishop of Chester, 23 Oct., 1714. The Inhabitants objected to the nomination on the part of the Vicar of Rochdale and claimed the right, but failed to establish it on a jus patronatus. Disentions and litigations proceeded to be car- ried on between the rival claimants for two years, and the Church probably supplied during that time by various Clergymen. He vacated the living in 1721, but what preferment he obtained, if any, I do not know. He was probably a relative of the Rev* Thomas Beighton, Rector of Egham, in Surrey, where he was

buried.—a native of Wirksworth, in Derbyshire, and who sold lands there an 1746.—He was a personal friend of David Garrick, and left him a valuable library ; Beighton had his preferment from Lord Orford at the instance of Garrick. The family, which bore arms, is now extinct at Wirksworth.—See Willis’ Current Notes, Dec., 1851, and The Reliquary, vol. v., p. 118. Mr. Charles Beigh- ton, of Healy, was buried at Rochdale, 11 Sept., 1700, and the name was not usual in the Register Bk. There is a farm in Spot- ‘land called Beightons.

1721. Mr. JOHN HEGINBOTTOM,

Born at or near Mottram, in Longdendale, 4 June, 1695, was edu- cated at Manchester Grammar School, from whence he proceeded to Brasenose College, Oxford. B.A., 15 Oct., 1716, M.A., 1721. Nominated to the Living by the Henry Pigott, and Licensed by Bishop Gastrell, 1721. Lived at the Old Parsonage House. He died at the house of one of his children, at Plattlane, Dobcross, Bur. Ig Jan., 1771, in 76" year of his age, near the Chancel of the Church. He was musical, and encouraged Psalmody in the church Services. A good preacher, his sermons being sound in doctrine and teaching; his manner of living was lax, which lost him the esteem of the devout portion of his flock. In his declin- ing years he became more regular in his habits, and was more respected by his parishoners. (See Inscription from Gravestone, List of his Children and value of Living in 1764.

Mr. SAMUEL STONE,

was Curate 1768 to 1777 under Mr. Heginbottom, at a salary of £16 per annum and Surplice fees, with small annual gratuities from the parishoners. He was anxious to become his successor in the living, but was disappointed in his wish, eventually he became Vicar of Rawdon Church, near Leeds, and was buried there.

Shorthand.

The Short-hand contained in the Saddleworth Parish Register is, undoubtedly, written in the system of Thomas Shel- ton, who published many editions of his book between the years 1620 and 1637, one of them being in Latin. The system under- went several alterations in the various editions, and but few of them are now extant. It was, in its time, a popular system ; yet nothing at present is known of its author. The alphabet used by the writer in the Register, is that of the various editions, entitled ‘Tachygraphy ;” but there are introduced into the longer piece of writing, several forms which do not appear in the books I have been able to examine, which renders the attempt at translating very difficult, and makes it impossible to determine intelligently the sense of the lines. The interlineations and excisions add to the difficulty of deciphering. But there is enough proof that each line contains a rhyming couplet, which leads me to suppose that the writing is a transcript of a portion of some ballad of the period. The fourth line from the end probably gives the title of the ballad, for it reads ‘‘ The Gallow Tree Journey for men of the Cotton Trade, 25-27,” though the word ‘‘ Cotton” may be doubt- ful as it is not written by the strict rule which requires that the places of the vowels should be shown by disjoining the signs for the consonant letters. The third line from the end contains some proper names, but only partially decipherable, viz.: by Mary Andrew (? Merrie Andrew), * * * Kof * oe * for John Winterbotham, k of * * * ” (K may indicate the sur- name of Kay or King). The word and “ flail” being written in longhand, and the writing generally carelessly written, with the several alterations, favours the conclusion that the writer was a novice in the art, and the subject being appa- rently an extract from a low ballad entitled “The Gallow-tree Journey,” and having no reference whatever to parish affairs, leads to the supposition that the writer copied it for practice.

worth aforesaid, the said Chapel was not conveniently capable of accommodating the Inhabitants of the Chapelry, late grown very Populous by reason of their Trade, but that there was still great want of Seats in the same. And that, whereas, another Gallery might conveniently, and without prejudice either to the Pabrick or any Person or Persons, built at the East end & on part of the South Side of the said Chapel, to wit, in length, at the East end Nineteen feet, ten inches, & in Breadth, Twelve Feet, and on the said South Side in length, Eighteen feet, eight inches, & in breadth, twelve feet or thereabouts, with a Stair Case leading thereto at the East end thereof, would not only be of good use to many Families, but'an Ornament & advantage to the Chapel itself, especially if the Petitioner might have liberty to raise the Roof on the South Side, for the more convenient putting in of three three-light windows on the said South Side, and one three-light window on the North Side for the better enlightening the said Chapel and Pulpit. The said Petitioner therefore Humbly Prays authority to be granted him at his own Cost to build such a Gal- lery with Seats therein, and a Staircase thereto, and dispose of the seats to such as stand in need therof, at Reasonable Rates, proportioned to the Charge expended in that behalf. We, judi- cially proceeding, did emit a General Proclamation or Citation, & cause the same to be Published in the Time of Divine Service within the said Chapel, on Sunday, the Eleventh Day of January current, against all Persons having or pretending to have any right, title, or interest in the said East end and South side of the S¢ Chapel, where the said Gallery was intended to be erected, to appear before Us, our Lawful Surrogate, or other Judge competent in that behalf, in the consistory Court, within the Cathederal Church of Chester, on Thursday, y® Fifteenth day of the same Month, at the usual time of Hearing Causes there, and propound in due form of Law a reasonable & lawful cause (if they could) why Licence, Leave and Authority as well for Building of a Gal- lery at his own Cost, in the Place or Places and of the Dimen- sions before described, with a Staircase thereto at the East End thereof, as well for raising the Roof of y® said Chapel, & making three three-light windows on the South Side thereof for better light might not be Granted to the said Timothy Whitehead at his instance, Intimating to the Persons so cited in general that if they did not appear at the time & place aforesaid, or appearing did not shew a reasonable cause to the contrary, We, our lawful Surrogate, or other Judge competent, would proceed to Grant Lycence, Leave and Authority to the said Timothy Whitehead, as well for the purpose aforesaid, as to dispose of the Seats in the said Gal- lery to be Built, the absence or contumacy of them so cited, in

anywise notwithstanding. And, whereas, upon the Return of the said Generall Citation or Proclamation & preconozation of all Persons thrice judicially made, no Person appearing to show cause to the contrary, We did, in pain of their absence or contumacy, at the Petition of the Proctor of the said Timothy Whitehead, decree Lycence, Leave & Authority to be Granted him for the several purposes before & hereafter particularly mentioned, as by our Act of Court, on the twenty-ninth day of the same Month in that behalf made, may appear. Know y°® therefore, that the said Vicar General & Official Principal by these Presents do give and grant full licence, leave and Authority to the said Timothy Whitehead at his own Charge to Build a Gallery at the East End & part of the South Side of the said Chapel of Saddleworth, in length at the said East End troft. 1oin., and in breadth 12ft., & in length on the said South Side 18 feet, 8 inches, & in breadth also 12 feet or thereabouts, with convenient Seats therein, & a Stair Case leading thereto at the East End thereof, & to raise the Roof of the said Chapel on the said South Side, & fix or place three three-light Windows there, & one three-light window on the North Side for the better light to y° said Chapel & y® Pulpit therein, And also to Dispose of y® Seats in the said Gallery to such Inhabitants of the said Chapelry who want the same, at- Reasonable Rates, proportionate to the whole Charge expended on this account, to & for the uses of Standing, Sitting and Kneel- ing in the same, & hearing Divine Service & Sermons to be had & celebrated in the same Chapel, the right & jurisdiction of the Ordinary always preserved. In Testimony whereof, we have caused these our Letters, Testimonials to be made & the Seale of our Office to be put thereto this thirty-first day of January, in the y' of our Lord God, according to the style of the Church of England, One Thousand Seven Hundred and Eighteen.

Address to Francis Gastrell, Bishop of Chester, from the Inhabitants of Saddleworth, claiming that the right to nominate the Incumbent tuas bested in them.

For y® Reverend the Lord Bishop of Chester, to be left at Mr. Clements, at the Half Moon, in St Paul’s Churchyard, Lon- don. (Indorsed Saddleworth Chapell, Mr. Beighton Lic? 1714, papers about it.)

May it please y’ Lordship,

To give us wose names are underwritten in behalf of o' selves, and above eight score more Inhabitants of the Parish of Saddleworth, in y' Lordship’s Diocese, humbly to represent to y' Lordship that after the death of o' late Minister, Mr. Lees, which happened before Christmas last was twelve months, the Inhabi- tants proceeded to make choice of another to, succeed him (as time out of mind they have been used in the like case to do), and humbly to recommend him to your Lordship’s predecessor (the now Archbishop of York), for his License, but met therewith opposition from the Vicar of Rachdale, claiming a right of nom- ination of a Curate to Saddleworth, as being within the Parish of Rachdale, a thing utterly new and unknown to the most antient of the inhabitants of Saddleworth, and what we cannot, without the strictest examination into it, and y’ Lordship’s determination thereupon, to whose care of justice to us we unanimously resign ourselves willingly acknowledging. We then represented that in all our antient as well as modern writings, deeds, evidences, Tenures and Grants from the Crown (of which last we have severall amongst us since Queen Elizabeth’s reign inclusive, if not before). It had been as it now is called y® Parish of Saddleworth, and y' if ever it was chapell, it was so originally to some Monas- tery or other Religious House to which we have been assurred it antiently did belong, and not to Rachdale. That all visitations, when the officers belonging to the Chappels within the Parish of Rachdale alwaies joined with those belonging the Parish Church, those for Saddleworth alwaies appeated distinet and seperate. That the Parish of Saddleworth in circumference is 16 or 20 miles, had within itself Parochial rights, privileges and Liberties entire, and never owned or paid to the Church of Rachdale, as in com- mon not only for Chappels of Ease, but Parochial to do to their Mother Church any fees, rights, contributions or dues uppon any account whatsoever. And that, from an antient survey of which

Page 449

Parish Registers. 441

by His Grace of [York’s] command, we procured a copy from Lambeth, and of that send the enclosed to y' Lordship. We hoped it would appear plainly that the same was independent of Rachdale, on the other hand y' his Grace the Archbishop of Can- terbury, as whom, for the time being are the Rectiories and Tithes, not only of Rachdale, but of several other large neighbouring Parishes, as well as Saddleworth, having in one and the same Lease in which he granted the Tithes of Rachdale to my Lord Byron, granted to him also the Tithes of Saddleworth, in which Lease we own t’ is enter’d a Chapell belonging to Rachdale, but for what reason we know not, and because the s4 Lessee is oblig’d thereby to pay to y® minister of Saddleworth, the yearly sum of £7, which he doth out of the particular Tithes of Saddleworth. From that only, as we have just reason to believe, the said Vicar of Rachdale took his pretention of having a right of nominating a minister or curate to us, though he and his predecessors as by the Antientest of our Inhabitants who remember changes in both places, are well assured have not before done, so this matter though long under His Grace’s consideration was, after all left by him undetermined, and wee without a minister save the Vicar of Rachdale’s nominee, whom his Grace (till it should be decided by him whether to License and establish him as the said Vicar’s nominee or no), thought fit should officiate amongst us. We assure y’ Lordship that all we aim at is, what in our consciences we believe wee have an Independancy of Rochdale, and since by our own Choice we mean no more than to have such an orthodox good man for o' Minister as might be approv’d by such a majority of us whose cheerful contributions to him his comfortable subsist- ence must depend, ye £7 above mentioned, and near as much in a Glebe belonging to “the Church being but a small thing to live on, we willingly, and with the utmost Resignation, submit the whole to y' Lordship’s wisdom and justice, humbly requesting of . your Lordship to take it into consideration and give us some answer, which, if directed for us to Huthersfield by the Yorkeshire Post, by the way of Wakefield, it will come to o' hands. We also begg leave to subscribe ourselves your most dutiful sons and servants,

Fragments Relatibe to the History of the Church and Manor of

® — ne —

Saddleworth is not named in Domesday, and it is doubtful whether it was then considered in Yorkshire, as lying over the watershed, which was the natural boundary, and being in the parish of Rochdale, in Lancashire. Saddleworth was, in all probability, a part of the great fief of Roger de Poictou, and passed. with the grant of the honor of Clitheroe to Robert de Laci. Then it would be that Quick and Saddleworth were subinfeuded to the ancestors of the Stapletons of Stapleton, in the parish of Darrington, Co. York. But it was not until about the time of King John (1200), that we have any evi- dence that they possessed it. * In the Nostell Priory Coucher is the following :—‘‘ Know p’sent & to come, that I, Robert de Stapleton, have given, &c., to the church & monkes of St‘ Oswald, of Nostell, pasture for 40 cowes or oxen, or both at their pleasure, to be fed in my pasture of Sadleworth, which lieth within these bounders, viz., from Cnothill [Knothill, near Delph], as the way goeth to Stonegge [Standedge Edge], & from Stonegge to Stablish loth, of Diggell [loch of Dig- gell, Diggle Edge], & from Stablish loch to Bradeston [Broad- stone, East of Running hill], & from Bradestone to Whykebrockt, in Hauekeserd [Whitebrook Head, above Hawkyard], to Cum- brock but supposed to be near Ladhill bridge], to the water of Tome [River Tame], & from the water of Tome ascend- ing towards Cnothill.” pa. 40.

— CIRCA 1200. ——

A Chapel was built in Saddleworth about A.D. 1200, either by Robert de Stapleton, or his son William de Stapleton, by Claricia, his wife, for before the year 1211, Roger,* Constable of Chester, son of John de Lacy, gave to the Monkes Stanlawt the church of Rochdale, with the chappell of Sadleworth,{ others having certain rights, eventually surrendered them to the abbey.

The above named William de Stapleton, who, as Lord of Sadelworth, desiring the spiritual wants of his tenants better attended to, and his chapel better served, obtained licence to have the divine offices celebrated by a chaplain, in his chapel of S* Chad,§ in Saddleworth, Roger de Lacy, patron, giving his permis- sion. The said William taking oath as follows :—|| To all to whom these presents in writing shall come, William de Stapylton saluteth in the Lord.

I, William, faithfully grant to your community, that which I have sworn in the church of St. Chad, by the touch of the relics of the holy saint of the said church, in the presence of faithful parishioners, as well as a clerk and laymen, by which I, the said William, and my tenants sincerely establish, and give annual tithes of my lands in Sadelworth, with the appurtenances of the forest to our mother church of St Chad; and the said church shall never lose by me, nor by my heirs, her tithes of the said lands; nevertheless, if any stranger shall come in my lands, and he consider it just and good, he shall give a tithe; or else, provided he shall presume to deny it, I, William, with the help of the mother church will compel him to pay the same. And I and my heirs will perform this covenant by deed in perpetuity with our mother church of St. Chad, and for such as they be made, such as is written by Geoffery, dean of Whalley, and vicar of St Chad, in Rochdale, by permission of Lord R [oger] de Lacy, ad- vocate of the mother church, and with a view of affection he allows me to employ and to give Divine praise publicly, and con-

tinually, according to custom, in my chapel building in Sadel- word, and on the condition which the mother church shall fix.* These are witnesses, Henry de Eland, Robert de Liuersedge, William de Deusbury, John, brother of the dean; Henry, clerk of Rochdale; Hugh de Stapelton, Nathan, clerk; Matthew de Glohut, Henry de Werld, Peter, the clerk ; Martin and Thomas, clerks; Henry Brun, and many others of the parishioners of the mother church.

t The Charter of W™ de Stapleton was confirmed by Robert de Stapleton, his son, by another of the same character. Confirmation of the grant by Robert de Stapelton, of his tithes and oblations in the chapelry of Sadelword. To all her sons who shall see or hear the holy mother church, writes these presents. Robert de Stapelton saluteth in the Lord. I bequeath to the community, by permission of Divine affection, the confirmation of my grant for the safety of the souls of myself, my ancestors, and successors. To God, and the blessed Mary, and the Holy mother church of St Chad, of Rochdale, and to the Rectors of the said church, that is to say, to the Lord Abbot and Convent of the blessed place of Stanlawe, and to her administrators, all those tithes, and oblations, of the whole of my land in the forest of Sadelword, with all the appurtences, and of the whole of the deeds appertaining unto my manor of Sadleword, just as if by right the grant belonged to the church originally, and of my vassals within the limits of the forest, who, on account of their sins, give tithes of all they possess, to have, and to hold in perpetuity, freely, quietly, peaceably, and entirely,

* This is an instance of the extreme jealousy with which the rights of the mother church were guarded when a private chapal or oratory was erected. Its dependence on the mother church was marked by many signs, of which Kennet observes, the prime and most effectual was the payment of tithes and other offerings, and all profits whatsoever, to the mother church; the Capellane was bound on certain festivals to repair there, and he took an oath of due reverence and obedience to its rectors. By a constitution of Archbishop Winchelsea, that oath was “that to the parochial church and the rector and vicar of it, he would do no manner of hurt or prejudice in his oblations, portions, and all accustomed dues; but as much as lay in his power, would defend and serve them in all respects.’’ These marks of sub- ordination are carefully preserved in the present instance.—Chetham Society,

${ Whether the limits of the forest included the whole of the present township of Quick has been questioned, and the district of Friar Mere still claims exempt tion from the payment of tithes, on the ground that it was not originally within the forest, and belonged to the Abbey of Rupe (Roche) as desmesne. Urban III. in 1186 exempted the Abbey from payment of tithes.—Chetham Society, vol, x, p. 148, note.

according to the custom of the mother church, without hindrance from me or my heirs. Furthermore, I have granted and confirmed it generally, seeing that Lord William de Stapylton, my father, grants of the forest of Sadelword xl. and more in years past to the mother church of Rochdale, just as if cf right they belonged to it, which I freely grant and confirm by this deed; and I, the aforenaimed Robert, and my heirs, do confirm all these before written to the mother church, and her rectors, faithfully to hold without detriment at my hand, in perpetuity; and I affix my seal to the present deed in the porch of the convent as it now stands. These are witnesses, Adam de Stafford,* for the time Archdeacon of Chester ; ‘Master Henry Lee, his officer; William de Wygan, clerk ; William, vicar of Rochdale; Robert, a person of Prest- wyche ; Roger, a person of Bury; Geoffery de Bucklegh, Richard de Butterworth, William de Haword,t his son; Roger de Berdes- hull, William de Berdeshull, Michel de Clegh, and others.

This was followed by another deed endowing the said Chapel with 13 acres of land, &c. { The grant of Robert de Stapylton of thirteen acres of land for the minister serving in the Chapel of Sadelword. To all who shall see or hear these presents now written; this deed showeth a provision between the Lord Abbot and Convent of the blessed place of Stanlawe, on the one part, and Lord Robert de Stapylton on the other ; that is to say, whereas Robert, by deed gives, grants, and confirms thirteen of arable land with one toft to build a competent manse in the place, with sufficient ‘land in the manor of Sadelword to sustain some minister, and shall be sufficient to maintain and pasture ten cows with their young to three years old; eight oxen, and sixty sheep with lambs to one year old ; and for ten sows with liberty to feed, and for two “‘ averia,’ with pasturage on the common for the same in the manor of Sadelword, within these limits; that is to say, from.

The avowson of Saddleworth belonged to the Abbey of Stanlawe, whence priests would be sent to serve the Church, & as the service books in Cistercian convents were somewhat different from those used in secular churches, and as, perhaps, their more learned men would not be sent to the more distant chapels, in all probability the above proverb had its origin about this time.

DISPUTE RESPECTING TITHES BETWEEN THE ABBOTS OF WHALLEY & ROCHE.

COMPOSITION BETWEEN THE ABBOTS OF WHALLEY & ROCHE.

‘“‘ By the tenor of these presents it is manifest to all, that inasmuch as a controversy has arisen between the religious mén, the Abbot of Whalley with his convent, rector of the Church of Rochdale, on the one part, and the Abbot of Roche on the other, upon the exaction of tithes of Hiullbrigthorpe, situated within the limits of the said parish ; the dispute has, at length, by the counsel & direction of the lords Abbots of Ryevall and Bildewas, judges assigned by a general chapter of the order in the said cause, also with the consent & free will of the said parties being settled in this manner, viz., that the said Abbot of Roche pay every year to the aforesaid Abbot of Whalley, or his certified proctor at Hill- brigthorpe, forty pence of silver, & one pound of wax, & one pound of Frankincense at the two terms of the year, viz., twenty pence and one pound of wax at the feast of St Martin, in the winter, and twenty pence & one pound of frankincence, at Pente- cost, for all tithes of garbs of a!l lands cultivated, & to be cultiv- ated, pertaining to the said place of Hillbri ethorpe, according to the command of the bull of Lord Boniface VIII., Pope. And, because in the agreement of this convention, there was a doubt whether the tithe hay ought to be reckoned with the greater tithes of garbs, or with the lesser, it was agreed by the said parties that the said doubt should be decided by a faithful inquisition of rec- tors, vicars of that country, suspected by neither party, before the ordinaries of that arcdeaconary in the province of the parties, and that what should be found by the said inquisition should be held good, & the present composition about tithes of garbs with the addition of the tithe of hay, either’as greater or lesser tithes, as the said inquisition shall decree to be assigned, after the said inquisition be renewed & corroborated by the common seals of each chapter, to remain for all time. In witness of which the parties have placed the seals which they use to this ordinance bi- partite.

Know that I, for the salvation of my soul, and all my ancestors and heirs, have granted and confirmed to God and the blessed Virgin Mary, and the Abbot and Convent of Rupe [Roche], and their successors, all the gifts and grants which Lord Robert, son of William de Stapleton, my great grandfather, whose heir I am, made to them, All that land and tenements which are called Hillbrighthorpe, by these boundaries, by the way which leadeth from Stanheges to Cnothill, and passeth the water of Tame, and so upwards to the other Cnothill, and all that Cnothill, even unto Woodward Hill, east, west, and north, so far as my land reacheth, with all build- ings, woods, and meadows, feedings, waters, pastures, and all appurtenances, and other things under the earth and above the earth, with the whole forest, and all other liberties to said forest belonging. I have also granted to the said Abbot and Convent, and their successors, for me and my heirs, full power to enclose all the said tenements by the boundaries aforesaid altogether, as ditched, and the ditches, if thrown down, to make up and renew as often and when they may please, and to keep the same enclosed without hindrence or reproach of me or my heirs or assigns. And also common of pasture from the great way * which leadeth from Stanheges unto the Bridgewater of Thame toward the north, to the boundary aforesaid, and from Cnothill to Woodward Hill, as the water departs toward the wood of Thame. To have and to hold all the said tenements and pastures in free, and perpetual elemosine, safe and quiet from all secular service, claims, and demands for ever. So that the said Abbot and Convent [of Roch] and their successors may do what they will with all that is contained within their said enclosed tenements, without contra- diction of me or my heirs, and without plea of forest. And I, the said Warin and my heirs, will warrant, aquit, and for ever
