Primary tabs

"The borough [of Harwich] comprises the parishes of Dover-court and St. Nicholas, in the archdeaconry of Colchester, and diocese of London. The living of Dover-court is a vicarage, with the perpetual curacy of St. Nicholas, rated in the king's books at £5. 0. 10., endowed with £200 private benefaction, and £200 parliamentary grant, and in the patronage of the Crown. The church, dedicated to All Saints, is an old building: it contains several ancient monuments, and was celebrated for a rood, or crucifix, held in high veneration, for the destruction of which three men from Dedham, who had stolen it from the church and burnt it, were hanged for sacrilege in 1532."
