After the dissolution of the religious houses the rectorial tithes were disposed of to laymen, and are now the property of R. P. Johnson, Esq. Temple, as the heir of Robert Popplewell. The Vicarage passed into the family of Ashbourne, who built the house in 1710, then into that of Egremnont, who sold it lately to Mr. Duncombe, of Lincoln's. Inn Fields.

The following is a list of the Vicars, as far as can be ascertained from the records at Lincoln.
