BURY

[Transcribed and edited information from The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland - 1868]

"BURY, a parish in the hundred of Hurstingstone, in the county of Huntingdon, 1 mile to the south of Ramsey. It is situated on a branch of the river Nen, over which is an ancient stone bridge of two arches, said to have been erected by one of the abbots of Ramsey, to which monastery the manor then belonged. A barrow in the neighbourhood has probably given name to the parish. The living is a perpetual curacy in the diocese of Ely, value £167, in the patronage of Lady O. B. Sparrow. The church, which stands on a hill near the village, is dedicated to the Holy Cross. It is a large structure with an eastern transept, partly in the Norman and partly in the early English style of architecture, and contains a carved wooden screen.
