Ald. Gurny kept's shrievalry in her house, paid £200 rent for it, told me it was richly worth an £100 a year and that he would have been tenant of it for 21 years and have paid an £100 yearly, but could not obtain his desire Yet this said Alderman Gurny does owe me tithes for 3 quarters unless I will take half a crown for a quarter.

Total sum of yearly rents amounts to £1,142.

Whole sum of yearly tithes as they be now paid arises to £53/1/10.

Casualties, Burials, Weddings, Churchings, Easter offerings, etc., do in the year come to much about ten or twelve pounds.

To the Vicarage belongs a dwelling house (the Vicar's house) worth £8 or £10 a year, as houses go now, situate at the west end of the churchyard, of which the vicar present lets a piece for a while which yields him 12 pence a week and has so done since the first of October last.

To the said Vicarage appertains a tenement situated the east end of the churchyard which yields the Vicar for the present nine pounds per annum.

MS. p. 296.
