MC:PR30/4/N1 Printed Miscellanea
Printed subscription list for a proposed church at Headington Quarry. Several hands have been added in MS, including from Martin Routh.
Three Printed Acts of Parliament, bound into one volume inscribed “Tilehurst Benefice Acts”, as follows:
(1) Act for erecting 2 distinct rectories within the parish of Tilehurst, Berks., to create the new parish of Theale, 24 July 1820.
(2) Act to abridge the holding of benefices in plurality & to make better provision for the residence of the clergy, 14 Aug 1838.
(3) Act to amend the law on the holding of benefices in plurality, 14 Aug 1850.
No provenance is given for this volume, but it may well have come from Routh’s papers, because he was the incumbent of Tilehurst in plurality with his post at Magdalen, and therefore all three acts would have been of great relevance to him.
