Note by your Editor:
The Nottingham Archives also hold a separate Terrier dated 1764. This parchment contains a note thus :-
“Terrier of Stanton Rectory written by Sir Mark Parsons and presented by him to Joseph Smith, (Curate), in supposition that the inhabitants would not produce one, taken in 1764.”
The Terrier that follows is almost word for word the same as the one put forward to York by the Rector Charles Henchman except that the content of the paragraph titled “Furniture” is changed around slightly.
To see the Terrier written by Sir Mark Parsons please see Nottingham Archives PR 1936
