Rectory : earliest record
Below you can see information taken from Glebe Terriers - records of the church for 1601, 1674, 1679, 1690, 1697,1701, 1708 and 1724. The 1601 reference is I think the earliest known reference - in the book "A walk round Hathern" it was stated that their had been a rectory since 'at least 1674'. The last section below describes the mortgage of £920 obtained to repair and enlarge the parsonage house. You can also see here an investigation by Geoff Fletcher looking at the links if any between the Rectory and Stints Farm.
