Thomas Tbornhill, Esq., is lord of the manor, formerly held by Bury Abbey; but part of the soil belongs to J. Goodrich, Esq., and several smaller owners. The Church (All Saints) is a neat structure with a tower and six bells. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in K.B. at 13 5s., and in 1835 at 284. The patronage is in the Crown, and the Rev.
