To the Revd the Minister of Buckerell

Chanter 232A, 245

  1. Residence, curate and lecturer: I reside at Sowton which Parish I serve - not at Buckerel on account of the badness & smallness of the house which has not been inhabited by any Clergyman for a great many years past.

  2. Other benefices: No.

  3. Divine service at other churches: At Sowton.

  4. Frequency of divine service: It has not been usual to have divine service administer'd but once a day for many years past, & the Living being very small has been for time immemorial serv'd in conjunction with another.

  5. Frequency of communion: Four times a year - the communicants about twenty.

  6. Catechising of children: At midsummer.

  7. Church fabric: Yes.
