Residence, curate and lecturer: As Curate of the Parish of Yealmpton, I hope the following reasons for my nonresidence may in some measure justify me to your Lordship. I am married & have a family, and there is bona fide no house in the parish to be had capable of accomodating me. I reside at present & have done so above two years past at Membland, a house situated on the very borders of Revelstock & daughter Church of Yealmpton. The Vicarage house is a very bad one, but has been made tolerably comfortable by a very good old Lady who has resided in it above twenty years, & whose Liberality is very extensively felt in the parish. While I was unmarried, & it was possible to reside, I did so, above three years. My salary is thirty pounds a year. I can conscientiously assure your Lordship, that neither the office of the Church, nor such superintendence of the Parish as may be expected of the officiating minister, is neglected.
