Parsonage:Granville Dudley Ryder of Westbrook Hay, Bovingdon, the patron and local landowner provided a field of about 10 acres called Barnfield to provide a site for a new Vicarage and Vicarage Glebe. The building was completed in 1837 in excess of 1000. Ryder transferred the Advowson to CAT in 1911. In 1934 the incumbent G A Bartlett sold the rectory (because it was too big probably) and part of the land. Part of the glebe and a portion of the vicarage garden amounting to just under 2 acres were retained to provide a new Vicarage (still in use as the vicarage today). (Source of information: Dr A. M. Brown who lives in the rectory built in 1837 and has further documentation (see files). 2008
