The Executors of the late John Carpenter, Esq., are lords of the manor, owners of a. great part of the soil, and patrons of the rectory, valued in K.B. at £10.6s.8d., and in 1831 at £245. The Rev. C. E. Radclyffe, M.A., is the incumbent, and has 102A. of glebe, and a large residence. The tithes have been commuted for £165 per annum. The Church (St. Mary) is a small fabric, in the perpendicular style, with a handsome tower, containing five bells. The poor have £20 a year from Tremayne's Charity, as noticed at page 801. Here is a small Bible Christian chapel, erected in 1832. H. Rundle, G.C. Bloye, J.S. Lethbridge, J.H. Gill, and Hy. Hoidge, have estates in the parish.
