Data from the 'Collectio Rerum Ecclesiasticarum' from the year 1842.

The place: ADWICK UPON DEARNE.     Church dedication: PATRON SAINT NOT KNOWN.     Church type: Perpetual Curacy.

Area, 1,130 acres. Strafforth and Tickhill wapentake, N .D. -Population, 145 ; Chapel-room, 100 *1; Net value, vide Wath upon Dearne.

Patrons, the Dean and Canons of Christ Church, Oxford.

Sweine, son of Ailrick, gave the Church to the Priory of Nostell, and Hugh de la Val confirmed the same, and it was appropriated by Archbishop Walter Grey to the use of the fabric thereof, and he directed the Canons to serve the Church by a secular Priest, who was to have a stipend, without ordination.

Adwick was part of the fee of Roger de Bush, and the mesne lords were Ailrick, Sweine, and Adam. The latter left two daughters, by one of whom a moiety came to the Nevilles, and afterwards a portion came to Ingelram, the Lutterells, Clarels, Fitzwilliams, and Foljambes, and lastly, through the Pierrepoints, to Earl Manvers.

Valued in Pope Nicholas's taxation, at £4 ; in 1707, at £20. 5s. In the Parliamentary Survey, vol. xviii. page 506, it is stated to be " A Rectory impropriate to Christ Church, Oxford, worth £60 per annum; £10 paid to the minister. To be annexed to Mexbrough." And in 1818, at £40 per annum.

Augmented, in 1810, with £200 from the Parliamentary grant ; in 1811, with £200; and in 1824 with £200 -all by lot.

Decree in the Exchequer as to tithes was made in Michaelmas Term, 4th Jac. I., but which is unreported.

No return as to glebe house.

The Register Books commence in 1690.

Parochial Charities. -No return.

Mr. Hunter says the Church is the purest specimen remaining in this Deanery of the original village Church ; and he is of opinion it is the original fabric erected in the time of Sweine. He describes a shield on some old pewing.

Post town: Doncaster.
