The rectory, valued in the King's Book at £12 has about 16A. of glebe, and a yearly rent of £406 13s., awarded in 1839, in lieu of tithes. The patronage is in Eton College, and the Rev. Fdk. Browning, M.A., is the incumbent.
The Wesleyans have a chapel here, and at the cross roads is the shaft of an ancient cross.
The Church Land, 8A. 2R., is let for £16. For weekly doles of bread, the poor have a yearly rent-charge of £1 14s. 8d., left by Jas. Dalling, in 1640. They have also one-third of Walterson's Charity, as noticed with Thornham; and the parish has the privilege of sending four boys to the Free School at Brancaster.
