The living is a rectory, in the archdeaconry of Northampton, and diocese of Peterborough, rated in the king's books at £14. 7. 6., and in the patronage of B. Lucas, Esq. The church is dedicated to St. Mary. Here was formerly an alien priory of Benedictine monks, a cell to the abbey of St. George, at Banguervill, in Normandy, to which it was given by William de Tankerville, chamberlain to Henry I.; at the suppression, in the reign of Richard II., it was conveyed to the Carthusians of Coventry, and as part of their possessions was granted, in the 4th of Edward VI., to the Marquis of Northampton."  [Samuel Lewis A Topographical Dictionary of England (1831) ©Mel Lockie]
