SOMERSETSHIRE PARISHES 



SOMERSETSHIRE 
PARISHES 

A 

HANDBOOK 

OF 

HISTORICAL REFERENCE 



TO ALL PLACES IN THE COUNTY 



BY 

ARTHUR L. HUMPHREYS 



LONDON 

187 PICCADILLY, W 

1905 



PREFACE. 

TO students of topography this book explains itself, and to 
such there is very little need of preface or introduction. 
The book has been compiled for the convenience of those 
interested in local history, a small body of intelligent people which 
exists in every County, wishing to know more of the past history 
of their Parishes, their districts, and their homes. 

Perhaps the three most attractive subjects to commend to the 
study of any one possessing a love of research are the studies of 
men, of books, and of places. These three subjects necessarily 
interweave themselves and overlap one another. Each absorbs a 
lifetime and there is no better hobby than any one. My own hobby 
has been the study of places, with a strong leaning towards those of 
Somersetshire. The result has been that I have collected a large 
quantity of historical notes, and three years ago, finding that these 
notes were, from their extent, becoming unmanageable, I decided 
to arrange them as far as possible under Parishes, and print the 
work for such few as cared to buy. 

The book forms a handbook to Somersetshire parochial history, 
and the ground covered by it has not been touched by any other 
work. Mr. Rye many years ago did a volume upon similar lines 
for Norfolk, and Mr. Copinger is now doing the same for Suffolk. 
So far, I believe, Norfolk and Suffolk are the only other Counties 
which have been dealt with in this way. Bibliographies exist for most 
Counties, but no satisfactory or uniform scheme has been arrived at 
in compiling such works, the result being that much time and money 
have been wasted over badly conceived Bibliographies with their long 



vi PREFACE. 

lists of Funeral Sermons, Local Pamphlets, &c., all catalogued with 
an elaboration of detail worthy of something much more valuable 
historically. 

This book is but an attempt to arrange intelligently and help- 
fully a large quantity of scattered and fugitive material, and I may 
plead that County Bibliographies might be compiled on similar lines. 
I mean that as this is a handbook to historical notes for Somerset, 
there might be issued a handbook to titles of historical books for Somer- 
set, or for any County. Further, I would advance the suggestion that 
in each County there should be formed an Index Society, the work 
of which should consist in the compiling and publishing of indexes 
to County records or indexes to historical references. If such a 
Society were to be formed in Somersetshire, for instance, working 
outside or beside existing Societies, a modest income from sub- 
scriptions yielding annually fifty to one hundred pounds would do a 
great deal to assist research. 

I watch with interest the operations of some Archaeological 
Societies, and would gladly see their plan of campaign changed, 
and their funds directed towards more definite ends, and not spent 
in arranging picnics in the parks and pleasure grounds of people 
whose almost sole interests in life are horses and dogs. Until 
great County families show a more lively interest in intellectual 
pursuits, it is humiliating for a learned Society to picnic within 
their gates. 

The materials which I have taken for this book are those 
which I have considered were of most use and value. I might 
have gone on, upon almost similar lines, indefinitely ; but I have 
had to stop somewhere, and that somewhere is a very long way 
short of what I could have wished. There yet remains much 
work which might be done, and which would, if done, pave the way 
towards the realisation of that ideal Parochial history of Somerset 
which we yet seek, and which still seems a long way off completion. 

"While speaking of what the book includes, I wish also to speak of 
what it designedly omits. A large number of books will no doubt 
suggest themselves as those which I should have included in preference 



PREFACE. vii 

to many which I have chosen. This is, of course, matter of individual 
judgement, and in many cases my decision has been arrived at after 
first viewing the ground covered by Mr. Emanuel Green's exhaustive 
Bibliotheca Somersetensis. 

It will be seen that I have given prominence to Wills, and 
this because I believe a Will to be one of the most valuable in- 
struments in illustrating local history. Wherever Wills are in- 
dexed, all places named in each one have been indexed, and not 
only the place of residence. If any one will take the references 
to Wills for any Parish, and follow them up, he will see what 
a good yield there is towards illustrating the domestic history of 
the periods covered by the Wills. I have taken all the Somerset- 
shire entries from Musgrave's Obitiiary, and where 'Musgrave 
Gent. Mag." 1 is given as the source of information, it signifies that 
the reference is taken from Musgrave, who is responsible for the 
' chapter and verse ' of whatever obituary is indexed. 

As far as the Public Record Office Indexes have been issued, 
I have availed myself of most of them. It will be noticed that I 
have also taken the early volumes of the London Gazette for the 
seventeenth century, and have indexed the very quaint advertisements 
which appear therein. Besides the names of Parishes, there is 
included in the alphabetical arrangement of the book, names of 
Hamlets, Hundreds, Tithings, &c. ; and in investigating the history 
of any Parish by means of this book, reference should be made to 
all such places, as well as the main entry under the Parish in 
question. I am greatly indebted to Mr. W. S. Johnson for 
most valuable assistance in transcription, and I am indebted to many 
others also.
