The manor belonged to the Crown; and passed to the Earls of Devon, the Chutes, and the Thorneycrofts. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Winchester. Value, £400. Patron, the Incumbent of Kennington-St. Mark. The church was built in 1840. There are two other churches, in the patronage of trustees. There are also three dissenting chapels, a proprietory grammar-school, national schools, and a British school.
