The dedication of the church appears to have changed over the years. According to the Victoria County History, the church was given as dedicated to St Peter in 1762, while in 1786, 1808 and 1849 (and 1868 according to the quotation above) it was said to be dedicated to St Michael, although at the time of writing of the VCH in 1924 and since it has been dedicated to St Nicholas.
