Parish History

SALTERS-STREET, an ecclesiastical district, in the parish of Tanworth, union of Solihull, Warwick division of the hundred of Kington, S. division of the county of Warwick, 2½ miles (W. by N.) from Hockley.[1]

Tanworth St Patrick Salter's Street is an Ecclesiastical Parish in the county of Warwickshire, created in 1843 from Tanworth-in-Arden, Warwickshire Ancient Parish.

TANWORTH (St. Mary Magdalene), a parish, in the union of Solihull, Henley division of the hundred of Barlichway, S. division of the county of Warwick, 4 miles (N. W. by N.) from Henley-in-Arden; containing 1925 inhabitants. This parish, which is near the road and the canal from Birmingham to Stratford, comprises, with the liberty of Monks-Ridings, 9400 acres of land, divided among several freeholders, of whom Edward Bolton King, Esq., is lord of the manor. There are 4663 acres of arable, and 3890 of pasture; the remainder of the area is composed of wood and waste grounds. The soil on one side of the parish is chiefly clay, and the lands are under good cultivation. Umberslade Hall, here, the seat of Mr. King, and formerly the residence of the Lords Archer, is a handsome mansion built in 1720 with stone from the quarry in the parish. The village is pleasantly situated; the manufacture of wick-yarn was once carried on in it to a considerable extent. A fair for cattle and sheep is held on the 23rd of April, and one at the end of September for hiring servants. The living is a discharged vicarage, valued in the king's books at £6. 13. 4., and in the patronage of Viscount Holmesdale, who, with Mr. King, is impropriator: the vicarial tithes have been commuted for £500, and the impropriate for £1223. An excellent Vicarage-house has been built by the incumbent, the Rev. Dr. Saunders, master of the Charter-House school, London: the glebe comprises 40 acres. The church was originally a handsome structure in the decorated English style, but has been greatly impaired by injudicious alterations made within the last fifty years. A church has been erected at Salters-Street, which see; and two schools for boys, and two for girls, are supported out of bequests producing £150 per annum, the remainder of which is distributed to the poor. There is a place of worship for Independents
