NONCONFORMITY.

Joan Alchorne of Albourne, who possibly lived at Bishops Place, was recorded as a recusant in 1593, (fn. 1) and a schoolmistress in a Roman Catholic household was mentioned in 1605. (fn. 2) The three dissenters of unknown denomination listed in 1676 (fn. 3) were perhaps the three parishioners presented for non-attendance at church in the 1680s. (fn. 4)
