Holy Cross, Felsted

FELSTEAD, a parish in the hundred of HINCKFORD, county of ESSEX, 4 miles (E S E) from Great Dunmow, containing 1724 inhabitants. The living is a vicarage, in the archdeaconry of Middlesex, and diocese of London, rated in the king’s books at £13 6s 8d, and in the patronage of the Hon. W. T. L. P. Wellesley. The church, dedicated to the Holy Cross, has lately received an addition of seventy free sittings, the Incorporated Society for the enlargement of churches and chapels having granted £50 towards defraying the expense; in it is a superb monument to the memory of Lord Rich, who, in the reign of Elizabeth, founded a free school and an almshouse, the former of which has been long supported by some of the principal families in the county. Sydney Boteler, in 1690, gave a rent-charge of £7 12s per annum, for clothing and teaching six children, and other purposes.
