To the Revd the Minister of Ogwell West

Chanter 232A, 131

  1. Residence, curate and lecturer: I do not reside, my Lord, in my Parsonage-House; because my Family is large, and the House (consonant in Size to a Benefice of only 45: 17s 0d per Annum, which by Composition & the Rent of the Glebe, is the present Income of West-Ogwell) too small to contain it.

  2. Other benefices: I have no other Benefice than West-Ogwell.

  3. Divine service at other churches: I perform Divine Service at Denbury, as Curate to the Revd Mr. Preston.

  4. Frequency of divine service: Divine Service is performed at my Church every other Sunday, with a Sermon, in the morning. On the afternoon of the same Sunday & the following whole Sunday, I perform Divine Service at Denbury. This I did by Permission of our late hon[oura]ble and worthy Diocesan; and it was so done for a great number of years by one of my Predecessors, the late Revd Mr. Taylor: and I hope, your Lordship will have no Objections to my continuing to do the same; as West Ogwell is but a mile distant from Denbury; and the Parishioners can as well attend Divine Service at the latter as the former.

  5. Frequency of communion: The Sacrament of the Lord's Supper is administered four Times in the year, viz the Sundays after Easter <day> Whitsunday, and Christmas, and just after Michaelmas. The number of Communicants, belonging to the Parish, may be about Ten or Twelve.

  6. Catechising of children: I catechise the youth between Easter and Whitsunday.

  7. Church fabric: Yes [illegible deletion] my Lord.

  8. Glebe terrier: I have a Terrier of the Glebe Lands, Houses, &c. according to the Tenor of the 87th Canon.

  9. Number of families: Seven.

  10. Chapels: There is no Chapel within my Parish.

  11. Papists, dissenters and meeting houses: There are neither Papists nor Dissenters of any Denomination in my Parish.

  12. School, alms-houses, hospital and charitable endowments: There is nothing of this kind in my Parish.

  13. Charity: None that I know, my Lord.

    Priest's orders and institution: My Institution is dated October 19th 1774.
    My Priest's Orders bear date July 8th 1750.

    I am, My Lord, Your Lordship's most humble and devoted Servant Will Neyle.
