Some parishes may be noted as being 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."
