TitleFaculty in the name of John, Bishop of Coventry and Lichfield, under the official seal of the Vicar General, appropriating to John Bullocke esquire lord of the manor of Norton, a pew or sitting-place in the middle of the church of Norton, to the south of the doors of the chancel ; with the right to extend the pew to a limited extent, over part of the floor of the church formerly occupied by the seat of the vicar, and since misappropriated without authority by George More, Phillip Gill, Anthony Steven, Leonard Gill and Anthony Morewood.
DescriptionNotes : it appears from the deed that through non-user of the old manor house pew, it had been lost ; and John Bullocke having acquired the manor, prior to the date of this faculty, evidently wished to have, as lord of the manor, a pew in the centre of the church, instead of the small pew in the north aisle, which his father formerly occupied.
