The living is a discharged vicarage, in the jurisdiction of the Commissary of London, concurrently with the Consistorial Court of the Bishop of London, rated in the king's books at £14. 5. 5., endowed with £200 private benefaction, and £200 royal bounty, and in the patronage of the Crown. The church is dedicated to All Saints. At the eastern extremity of the parish are vestiges of an ancient fortification, supposed to be British, called Ambersbank. The learned Dr. Joseph Hall, Bishop of Norwich, was at one time vicar of this parish; as was subsequently Dr. Thomas Fuller, the church historian."
