Residence upon cure: I do reside personally upon my Cure, as that may Import the constant & regular Discharge of my Duty, but not in my Parsonage House. For these Reasons. The House is a Small mean Building not capable of receiving my Family. My Predecessor dying Insolvent I could not recover any thing for his Dilapidation, and the yearly Income of the Place being small (not amounting to forty Pounds clear) I am not able to lay out more on it than is sufficient to keep it in tenantable Repair. These Reasons prevailed on your Ldship’s Predecessor to permit my Residence in Barnstaple. And I humbly Desire the like Favour of your Lordship, having Four sons to Educate, who may now receive the Benefit of the Writing & Grammar Schools, which otherwise they would want, thro my Inability to support the Expences of Boarding them here.
Curate: This I look upon as answered by the former.
