Alms-house, hospital or charitable endowment: There are several Alms=houses endowed with lands in this Parish. There are Feoffees from time to time for the management of them. I never heard of any frauds or abuses committed in the management of them.
Residence upon cure: I allways spend some time of the year in this Parish; & allways in my Parsonage house.
Curate: I have at present no Curate: I have intitld a young man whose name is Gould to the Cure of this Parish; but he is not yet in orders. I have allowed him thirty pounds yearly, with all the Surplice fees. I intend he shall live in the Parsonage : house.
Frequency of divine service: Divine service is perform’d in my Church twice every Lord’s day, with a sermon after morning, & Evening service. I cant answer for my Curate, whether he has observ’d all the Anniversary Feasts, & Fasts of the Church. He is settled in a Parish of his own in ye Deanry of Tavistock.
Frequency of communion: The Holy Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper is administred in my Church four times in the year. Viz: at the three great Feasts, & about Michaelmas.
Number of communicants: I believe there may be about two hundred Communicants, fifty of which usually receive: I did not administer the last Easter, but from what I have observ’d the number is at all times the same, or thereabouts.
Catechising of children: I always catechise the Children in the Parish where I reside the Summer. My Parishioners never send their Children nor servants who have not learnt their Catechism, to be instructed by me – it being the custom of the Country.
