The living is a discharged vicarage, valued in the King's Book at £6, and in 1831 at £40. It was augmented in 1737 and 1763 with £400, laid out in land now worth £30 a year, besides which, the incumbent (Rev. James Hoste,) has a yearly modus of £10 from the impropriator and patron, - D. Hoste, Esq.

The parishioners use the church at Stanhoe.

The farmers of Great Barwick are, John and Wm. Hunter.
