Population, vide Ayton; Church-room, 100; Net value, £46. -This Chapel, in which was a Chantry, founded in the time of King Edward III., appears, says Mr. Graves, to have been originally private, and built and endowed by the lord of the manor for the convenience of his tenants or domestics, the patronage of which is still appendant to the manor. It continued a Donative, and exempt from ordinary jurisdiction, till it was augmented. It does not enjoy the parochial rights of baptism, sepulture, or marriage.

Mr. Torre notices a Chantry in this Chapel.

The patronage, in 1793, was in J. B. Pierson, Esq., and Henry Orton, yeoman ; and in 1814, in Thomas Simpson and T. Masterman, Esq.

Augmented in 1790, with £200; in 1794, with £200; in 1797, with £200; in 1 81 6, with £200; and in 1824, with £200 -all by lot.
