It was repewed, restored, and newly roofed, in 1859, at a cost of about £400, raised chiefly by subscription, when a stained glass window, given by the Rector, was inserted in the east end.

The benefice is a rectory, valued in K.B. at £8. 10s. 10d., and now at £260, in the patronage of Jesus College, Oxford, and incumbency of the Rev. Robt. P. Williams, M.A., who has 38 acres of glebe and a good residence"
