Tithe book, including some of the personal accounts of rectors Richard Ward and John Bear  Par/167/6/1  1685-1762

1 vol., ff.197, paper, vellum bound

Contents:
The front cover bears memoranda indicating that the book was produced in cases of William v. Ede, Kings Bench 1782 and Sussex Assizes 1783.
The book falls into sections, written by each successive rector.
ff.1-91 Consist of the entries made by Richard Ward 1685-1706 [rector 1677-1706]
He enters each agreement with a landowner to receive a composition payment in lieu of tithe payment in kind. Thus ff.1-4 are half-yearly agreements with his brother-in-law John Gratwick Esq. for a sum of ,5. The annual composition agreement is followed by Richard Ward's personal accounts of how the money was spent, sometimes with his own comments. For example he paid John Gratwick "for managing my father's business" or "towards ye subscription for ye workes of King Charles ye 1st"; or "paid my sister... for five pounds of Saltfish"; or paid John Gratwick "for halfe a loade of straw to thatch the School" and "for my hogs running in his mast which were never the better for it"; he pays his "sister for pills" and his "Brother for Beef". After the entries for John Gratwick, the personal accounts become fewer and the entries are straight forward receipts for payments from other tithe payers;
f.51 shows outgoings (e.g. "for a wheelbarrow");
f.52 is a list of tithepayers;
f.60v shows outgoings such as "for keeping my horse one month";
f.91 contains Richard Ward's last entry, 1706;
ff.92- 104 contain the entries of John Stone, 1708- 1711 [rector 1706- 1711], with an index of names and corresponding properties on f.92. This is followed by an explanatory note, 1762, in a different hand. The rector John Stone receives composition payment from "my Uncle Gratwicke";
ff.104-190 contains the entries of J.B. [John Bear, rector 1711-1762], supplemented towards the end, as his writing became increasingly illegible, by entries in a different, uneducated, hand, 1712-1761. In general, John Bear used the verso folio for memoranda concerning composition agreements land, and his outgoings (e.g. "The allowed him on acct..... for chicken eggs and bacon" or for "two bushells of pease"), and the recto for receipts;
f.169 contains the first entry in a different hand, 1757, though John Bear's notes continue till his last one, f.190 [dated 1757];
ff.190v-196 contain receipts for payments, dates [not in chronological order] ranging from 1757 to 1762;
f.195v memorandum, stating that John Bear died on 9 March 1762 and that he was succeeded by Miles Williams, who "settled with all his parishioners for their Tithes.... 1762 according to the composition established with the late Mr Bear.... an account whereof.... will be kept and preserved for the future in another Book ....";
f.197v reversed. Two lists of sums paid [written respectively by John Stone and John Bear], n.d

Contents:
Baptisms, April 1786 - June 1837 and burials, June 1786 - October 1812. A loose sheet, inserted before the register proper, signed by John Gray, curate of Old Shoreham, and with the name John Lake, churchwarden, May 12 1723, lists the cost of building material for building a new vicarage house and for sundry repairs, 1729-1750. A note of 9 September 1729 describes the former vicarage house and the state it was in after having been uninhabited for about 30 years.
Following the baptisms, a printed parchment folio lists incumbents c.1150 to 1897, and the patrons. The vicarage was held with New Shoreham at irregular intervals from c.1504. The document was compiled in 1905 by Ernest F. Salmon, chiefly from information obtained by E.H.W. Dunkin and HA. Wilson, Librarian of Magdalen College, Oxford

Creator(s): Church of England, Singleton Parish, West Sussex; Singleton parish Council, West Sussex


Administrative history:
Surviving medieval sources indicate, but do not prove absolutely, that Singleton church was originally dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. The dedication appears to have been lost after the Reformation, and the church was simply referred to as the parish church. A misreading by C. Gibbon in 'Dedications of Churches and Chapels in West Sussex' (SAC vol. 12, 1860) of money bequeathed to Sir John of Singleton as money bequeathed to St. John of Singleton, led to the belief for the next century that the church was dedicated to St. John the Evangelist. When the error was discovered, the church was rededicated in March 1979, and is now the Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Singleton. (See SAC vol. 118, p.385-387)
