Long, Esq., the lord of the manor, and patron of the CHURCH, (Virgin Mary,) which was rebuilt in 1385, and has a fine brass, on which are graved the effigies of Richard, Ralph, and Edward Blundeville, of the 15th and 16th centuries. The rectory, valued in the King's Book at £10, is consolidated with that of Swainsthorpe, in the incumbency of the Rev.
