Note on Husband: John HOADLY (Reverend) (1)

St Margaret's Church at Halstead, an unpretentious building with bell turret, low sweeping roof and knapped flint walls, is Victorian. But inside, its memorials name members of the community back to the 14th century,and these were taken from the old church, when demolished in 1880-1. The remains of that building lie some two hundred metres away, in the grounds of Halstead Place School, most of its remaining memorials having been vandalised, largely in recent years.

 

 

 

 

by Geoffrey Kitchener

(Print dated 1838 of the original church of St.Margaret.)

 

The early origins of church and community may be inferred from these sources. First, a church at Haltesteda is recorded in the manuscript known as Textus Roffensis (c.1115), as part of a list of churches believed to be based on a Saxon original. Secondly, the site adjoined, and lay well within the private grounds of, Halstead Place. This was an 18th century mansion that replaced an earlier manor house, which suggests a continuity of relationship between church and principal landowner. In conjunction with the evidence of Textus Roffensis, this could point to origin as a private chapel erected by a Saxon thane next to his residence. Place-name evidence suggests that, in common with many other settlements ending in "-stead" high up on the downland, Halstead was an outlying secondary settlement, perhaps used for stock grazing, from middle or later Saxon times.

 

The church was rebuilt in the 13th century. Halstead does not enjoy the richness of medieval ecclesiastical records that its neighbours, Otford and Shoreham, possess. There are records of church bequests, proceedings for debt against the rector, and even excommunication of William Bebyngton, the incumbent in 1419. But the general paucity of information reflects the fact that this was a very small and impoverished parish. In 1377, only 38 persons over 14 years old paid their groats for the poll tax. In 1535, the living was assessed as worth 5 17s. 1d per annum, plus an additional 3s.4d allocated solely to the priest. By way of comparison, Shoreham with Otford was worth 56 gross, Chevening 21 6s.8d and Brasted 32 6s.8d.

 

In these circumstances, the parish might be fortunate in possessing a rector who was able to devote care and attention. Examples are John Hoadly (rector 1678-1725), who kept school "when I was young and Able"* ,
