In the 38th of Queen Elizabeth, Sir Anthony Wingfield held tin's lordship at one Knight's fee; and in the 15th of King Charles I., 1639, Sir Richard Wingfield, Bart., held the same. It is now vested in the Marquess of Hertford.

CHARITIES. The town estate consisted of a building used as a parish workhouse, and sundry parcels of copyhold land, dispersed in different parts of the parish, containing about 29 acres in the whole; but in 1814, an agreement was entered into by the then rector, parish officers, and principal inhabitants, with the Marquess of Hertford, that the premises should be surrendered to the use of the Marquess, and that he should grant a lease of the workhouse to the overseers of the poor, for 10,000 years, at a peppercorn rent; and grant a rent- charge of 36 a year to the overseers, out of certain lands of the Marquesses, in this parish. The annuity of 36, is paid to the overseers, and applied with the poor's rates.
