Kislingbury
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

14th CENTURY

In 1326 The crown confiscated Warine de Lisles Manors, therefore Kislingbury became the property of the crown
but after the murder of Edward II the manor was restored to Warine's son Gerard.
The manor then passed through families of Beauchamp to the Nevilles and Danvers.
These were the last of the old mediaeval noblemen to control the parish.



Picture of the Church

1348 - 1349 The Black Death struck the village approximately one third of the population perished.
The ironstone parish church built.
The founder probably Gerald de Lisle during the reign of Edward III.



1360 Alexander, son of Robert the Chaplain of Kislingbury, took sanctuary in the church
and confessed that he had killed Alexander Osebern of Harpole.



1894 "The Vestry Meeting", by which parochial matters and administration were discussed and settled, was abolished and elected parish councils formed.
