LEWIS TOPOGRAPHICAL DICTIONARY OF ENGLAND 1845

Bromfield (St. Mary), a parish, in the union of Ludlow, hundred of Munslow, S division of Salop; containing 655 inhabitants, of whom 531 are in the township of Bromfield, 3 miles (N.

The church was rebuilt a few years since: the old edifice was part of a larger conventual church that belonged to a Benedictine priory, established as a cell to the abbey of St. Peter at Gloucester, about 1155, on the site of a college of prebendaries, or Secular canons of earlier foundation: its revenue, at the Dissolution, was £78. 19. 4. A school is endowed with £100 three per cent. consols.

Directories

Bromfield Kellys Herefordshire and Shropshire Directory 1941

Bromfield is a parish and township on the road from Ludlow to Shrewsbury, with a station on the Shrewsbury and Hereford joint Great Western and London, Midland and Scottish railway, 3 miles north-west from Ludlow, in the Ludlow division of the county, Lower division of Munslow hundred, Ludlow rural district, petty sessional division and county court district, rural deanery and archdeaconry of Ludlow and diocese of Hereford.  A church and a religious house containing 12 secular canons stood here in the reign of Edward the Confessor (1042 – 1066): it is mentioned as the church of St. Mary in the Domesday Book of William the Conqueror.  Of this church the arches in the north and east walls of the chancel are probably the only remains: in 1135 the college of secular canons was transformed into a priory of regulars, who affiliated themselves in 1155 to the great Benedictine Abbey of St. Peter at Gloucester.  In common with all other religious houses it was dissolved in the reign of Henry VIII.  The tower is of the Early English style of architecture and contains a peal of six bells cast by Abel Rudhall of Gloucester in 1737, and returned and rehung in 1890: the clock was erected in 1887 to commemorate the Jubilee of Queen Victoria: the nave, which is probably the parish church of monastic times, has an oak roof erected in 1577: the font dates at least from the 14th century: high up in the east end of the church can be seen from the outside a blocked Tudor-styled bedroom window.  At the dissolution of the monasteries in 1538 the Priory church and buildings were handed over to Charles Foxe.  The story is told that he incorporated the chancel into a spacious house, of which the ruins remain; the chancel formed the dining room, with a bedroom above: after 100 years it is supposed the house was destroyed by fire, and the owners, taking it as “an act of God,” gave back the chancel to its present use, and put up the present painted rounded ceiling, with suitable texts, in 1672: the whole church underwent a thorough restoration in 1890 at a cost of £5,000.  The lych-gate at the entrance of the churchyard was erected by the late Mrs. Selwyn, to the memory of the Right Rev. G. A. Selwyn D.D. first Bishop of Lichfield and father of a former vicar: in the churchyard is the tomb of Henry Hill Hickman, the first known pioneer in anaesthesia by inhalation, born here in 1800.  The register dates from the year 1559 and incorporates the register of baptisms and burials of Halford chapel from 1597 to the time when Halford was detached, about 1845.  There is a list of priors and vicars in the vestry from the year 1135.  The living is a vicarage, net yearly value £350, including 8 acres of glebe, with residence, in the gift of the Earl of Plymouth P.C. and held since 1940 by the Rev. Arthur Lowndes Moir M.A. of Trinity College, Oxford, F.R.Hist.S.  The ancient Prior gatehouse stands, with old studded doors, and a black and white gable and an oriel window added centuries later; for a time this was the village school, and is now used as a recreation and reading room.  The church and the gatehouse are on a peninsula formed by the rivers Teme and Onny, which join a short distance from the church.  The township is of historic interest.  On the Old Field are ancient tumuli, probably pre-Roman.  In 1884 the remains of a Norman chapel, with a semicircular apse, and a skeleton, were discovered in a tillage field of the Rye Felton farm, and a funeral urn in the Old Field close by.  Oakly Park, the property of the Earl of Plymouth P.C. and residence of Lt.-Col. George Windsor-Clive C.M.G., M.P. is a Georgian mansion surrounded by pleasure grounds, groves of trees and a park of about 400 acres, containing many venerable oaks and through which the river Teme flows.  A handsome war memorial, designed by the 1st Earl of Plymouth, constructed of stone from his estate in South Wales, was erected Sept. 25th, 1921; it stands facing the main road.  In this parish is the Ludlow racecourse, on which two meetings are held annually; the course is also used as the Ludlow golf links.  The Plymouth Estates Ltd. are the principal landowners.  Electricity is available.  Main water is supplied.  The soil is gravely and clay; the subsoil is clayey and gravel, resting on sandstone formation.  The chief crops are wheat, barley, oats and roots; the larger part of the parish consists of fair pasture land.  The area is 5,973 acres of land and inland water; population in 1931, 534.

By the Shropshire Review Order, 1934, part of this parish was transferred to the borough of Ludlow.

Bromfield is a parish and village, three miles from Ludlow, 13 from Church Stretton, and 25 south from Shrewsbury, in the Southern division of the county, Lower division of Munslow hundred, Ludlow union, and diocese of Hereford.  The church of St. Mary is an ancient stone building.  Adjoining the church are the ruins of an old priory, which stand on a peninsula formed by the junction of the rivers Teme and Oney.  The living is a vicarage, yearly value £340, with residence and eight acres of glebe land, in the gift of trustees of the Clive family.  There is a school supported by Lady Mary Windsor Clive.  There are charities of £35 7s. 7 ¾ d. yearly value.  This township seems to have been occupied by the Romans, and there are many indications of this in the names Bromfield, Cookeridge, High Walton, Whitbatch, and Burway.  Oakley Park, the seat of the Clive family, and the residence of Lady Mary Windsor Clive, is an elegant mansion, of modern construction, surrounded by pleasure grounds and by groves and clumps of very ancient oaks.  The trustees of the late Henry R. Windsor Clive are lords of the manor and chief landowners.  The soil is sandy; the subsoil is clayey.  The area is 6,112 acres, and the population in 1861 was 750; gross estimated rental, £8,998; rateable value, £7,771.
