(1) I.e., 1515-6.

(2) Not previously certificated. Mansfield Woodhouse was a chapelry in the parish of Mansfield, not a separate parish. In 1339, Robert Stuffyn of Newark founded a chantry of one chaplain at the altar of our Lady in this chapel to celebrate for himself and Alice his wife, and the souls of Richard Stuffyn, their fathers and mothers, their ancestors, John son of Hugh de Portesmuthe of London, and all faithful departed. The prior and convent of Felley, by deed dated 25 September, 1339, undertook to pay the chaplain six marks yearly, by the hand of their cellarer, in consideration of the grant made to them by the founder of the advowson of Attenborough. The chaplain, in case of non-payment, was entitled to the sequestration of the fruits of the church of Annesley : the pension was charged upon the goods of the priory at Wheteburgh and Kirkby Woodhouse. After the founder's death, the eldest survivor of his four sons was to present with succession to the next, with lapse to Felley priory after fifteen days, and, after another fifteen days, to the archbishop. On principal feasts and Sundays the chaplain's mass was of the day or of the Holy Trinity, and he was bound to say mass of our Lady once a week. The date of confirmation by the archbishop is not given (York Epis. Reg. Melton, ff. 396d, 397). This chantry seems to have died out. In the particulars for grants of a number of lands for the maintenance of lights and obits, drawn up in 1548, this land, etc., appears as a messuage with three acres for the maintenance of the obit (10s.) and an acre of arable land for a lamp (6d.) [Augm. Office Misc. Books, lxvii., f. 256].
