PARISH OF WADDINGTON
FOREST OF BOWLAND.
PARISH OF WADDINGTON.
The parochial chapel of Waddington was endowed (as per composition between the vicar of Mitton, Sir J. Tempest, Knight, and others) A. D. 1438, but not improbably founded long before.
The choir, at least, and perhaps the tower, were rebuilt early in the reign of Henry the Eighth; for the former has the date MDXI. upon a beam, and the latter, which is of excellent masonry, bears every mark of that steeple-building æra in Craven. When Dodsworth visited the church, there were in the east window the figures of a Knight and Lady kneeling ; on his surcoat the arms of Tempest; on hers, those of Bowling, sable; an escutcheon, ermine; within an orle of martlets, argent; and beneath, “ Orate pro anima Ricardi Tempest, ac et Rosarnæ uxoris suæ, necnon omnium filiorum et filiarum prædicti Ricardi et Rosarnæ, qui istam fenestram fecerunt, A. D. M.DXII.”—This chapel is dedicated to St. Helen, and in the patronage of Thomas Lister Parker, Esq. of Browsholme. The present incumbent is the Rev. William Parker, who is also vicar of Almonbury, near Huddersfield, in the county of York. Anno Dom. 1810, the vicarage-house was rebuilt and enlarged by the present vicar.
Of the Parkers of Browsholme, interred in this church, the fol. lowing memorial is engraved on a large plate of brass, with the arms.
