    CHEVINGTON in 1844, is a large scattered village, on a picturesque acclivity, 6 miles S.W. of Bury, has in its parish 624 souls, and 2,429 acres of land. At the request of Abbot Baldwin, this manor was given to Bury Abbey. At the dissolution, it was granted to Sir Thomas Kitson. It has long been held by the family of the Marquis of Bristol, its present lord; and the other principal owners of the soil, are the Rev. J., & Misses E. & F. White, Dr. Colvile, J. Worlledge, Esq., and Mr. J. Kemp. The Hall is an ancient moated house, occupied by a farmer. The Church, (All Saints) is a neat fabric, with a tower and five bells, and was thoroughly repaired and new pewed in 1833. The rectory, valued in K.B. at 16 3s. 9d. has a yearly modus of 587 lOs.awarded in 1838, in lieu of tithes. The Rev. John White, M.A., is patron and incumbent, and has a commodious residence. The Methodists have a small chapel here. The Poor's Estate, purchased with benefaction money, comprises a double cottage and shop, with yards, gardens, and 34 roods of land, let for 9 a year; and an allotment, of 6a. 2r. 24p. awarded at the enclosure in 1816, and now let for 10 a year. The rents, after deducting for land tax aud repairs, are distributed among the poor at Christmas. The sum of 50, given by Dr. Henry Paman, was expended in enclosing the poor's allotment.
