W.P.S. Bingham

Prepared by Michael Steer

Rev W P S Bingham, Vicar of Kenton discovered the document which is the focus for his paper, in the parish Chest. It was written on parchment with a portrait of James I at its head and can be dated to 1604. It is the record of a judgement in the King's Bench and concerns the "tithe modus" for the parish.
