SNEAD (SNEYD, or IS NOWDD), a parish chiefly in the lower division of the hundred of MONTGOMERY, county of MONTGOMERY, NORTH WALES, 2 miles (N.) from Bishop's Castle, containing 57 inhabitants. This parish, of which a few fields are in the county of Salop, is about two miles in length and half a mile in breadth, and is watered by the river Camlet, which forms its northern boundary. The surface is undulated, rising in some parts into bold eminences, and the soil is in general fertile. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the archdeaconry of Salop, and diocese of Hereford, endowed with £450 from the tithes, £400 private benefaction, and £ 600 royal bounty, and in the patronage of Philip Morris, Esq. The church is an ancient edifice, in the early style of English architecture, and was formerly dependent on the priory of Chirbury : it is beautifully situated in a retired spot, and almost concealed from view by the numerous trees of lofty growth by which the churchyard is entirely surrounded : the west end is almost covered with ivy, and the venerable building has a strikingly picturesque appearance on entering the churchyard. The average annual expenditure for the support of the poor amounts to £42.5.
