"TILTY, a parish in the hundred of DUNMOW, county of ESSEX, 3 miles (S. by W.) from Thaxted, containing 78 inhabitants. The living is a donative, in the patronage of Lord Viscount Maynard. The church, dedicated to St. Mary, constitutes the remains of an abbey church, a fine specimen of the decorated style of English architecture; the east and north windows are ornamented with remarkably elegant tracery, and there are some rich stalls in the chancel. The abbey was founded, about 1152, by Robert Ferrers, Earl of Derby, and Maurice Fitz-Jeffery, for White monks, whose revenue, at the dissolution, was valued at £177. 9. 4."
