Some parishes may be noted as being "ex. par." = extra-parochial.
" An extra-parochial area was land uninhabited
in Anglo-Saxon times and outside the jurisdiction of any civil or ecclesiastical
parish. No poor or church rates were paid, though tithes in theory went to the
Crown. A resident could choose the nearest convenient parish for baptisms, etc."
