The Ancient Parish of THORPE SALVIN
[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]
"THORPE SALVIN, a parish-town, in the upper-division of Strafforth and Tickhill,
liberty of Tickhill; 4 miles W. of Worksop, (Notts) 9 from Rotherham, 13 from
Bawtry, 55 from York. Pop. 199. The Church, peculiar, is a perpetual
curacy, dedicated to St. Peter, in the deanry of Doncaster, value, !£53.
Patron, the Duke of Leeds.
The Church of Thorpe Salvin is remarkable for its handsome Saxon
Doorway. In the interior is a very curious stone Font, upon which are cut in
alto relievo, in compartments, the following figures, representing the
seasons of the year. Winter is figured by an old man warming himself before
a fire in a chimney; Spring, by one riding out a hawking; Summer by a man
reaping corn and bundling it up into sheaves; and Autumn, by a husbandman
sowing seed. The other compartments exhibit the ceremony of Baptism with the
parents and sponsors. See a particular account of this Font, with plate,
in Archaeolgia. Vol. xii. p.207 and 309."
