To the Revd the Minister of Walkhampton

Chanter 232B, 530

  1. Residence, curate and lecturer: My Lord,
    My Patron Mr Crymes Vicar of Walkhampton being at Sea, lays me his Curate under an Obligation of answering in the best manner possible, your Lordship's queries. I do not reside on my Cure. I live with my Brother (a Clergyman of your Lordships Diocese) a few miles from it: the Salary is so small (forty pounds a year) and my Circumstances so strait that were I to reside I should be incapable of furnishing myself with instructive Books relative to my profession; but living with my Brother gratis enables me to surmount those difficulties which Residence would otherwise throw in my way - This is a matter of fact. I therefore hope your Lordship will be so well pleas'd as to grant me nonresidence.

  2. Other benefices: [No answer given]

  3. Divine service at other churches: I perform Divine Service at no other Church but my own.

  4. Frequency of divine service: The Sacrament of the Lord's Supper is monthly administered. The number of Communicants is about thirty.

  5. Frequency of communion: Divine Service is perform'd [in] my Church, twice every Lords day, with a Sermon on each part, and the Church is much better served than it has been for years past, my Duty particularly attended to, which not only the Churchwardens, but also a cloud of Witnesses are ready to attest.

  6. Catechising of children: Between Easter and Michaelmas I catechise the Youth.

  7. Church fabric: The Church and Chancel is in good repair, & Churchyard well kept, and all things are decent for divine Service.

  8. Glebe terrier: [No answer given]

  9. Number of families: About fifty families.

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

  11. Papists, dissenters and meeting houses: I have none.

  12. School, alms-houses, hospital and charitable endowments: I have a publick School in my Parish, and it is properly managed according to its original Institution.
