Hillington Saint Mary the Virgin Church.



Hillington Saint Mary the Virgin Church, My father, has brothers buried in the graveyard, the Jarvis family, his mother Kate May Jarvis too, once a Boldero, nee Horrex. Grandfather and Grandmother came at one time from Stowupland in Suffolk, another county I am taking in on the churches trail, home to my favourite at Crowsfield. There has been a church here for many centuries, perhaps before the Norman conquest. Much of the present church dates from the 15th century, and was altered in the 19th century. The tower is 15th century, and typical of the Perpendicular Period, in John Mogyll of South Wootton, left £5 towards the fabric of this tower. The belfry later, this contained one bell, cast by John Brend the younger. The font is a 14th century one, recently brought here from Saint Mary's Church, (Now a ruin) Near King's Lynn. The pews were given by Sir Everard Ffolkes, a local name from Ffolkes Hall and Ffolkes Arms Hotel.The brass eagle lectern dates from 1882. West tower, nave, chancel and north chancel chapel. This church with its 28ft wide nave looks barn-like with its plaster ceiling and dreadful cast iron windows, but it was rebuilt in the last century when the south aisle was absorbed, as can be seen by the respond left at the west end of the old south arcade. There is a good monument to Richard Hovel, 1653. and a medallion to William Browne of 1774, by sculptor Joseph Wilton R. A. Hillington Saint Mary the Virgin Church, square west tower, 1 bell, nave and chancel with north chapel. It is mainly in the Perpendicular style. The nave was practically rebuilt in 1824. There are memorials to the Hovell family from 1705. There are also monuments to the Browne family, two being for both Lady, Mary Browne 1763 and William Browne by Sir W. B. Archit and one for Sir Edward West dated 1828 by sculptor H. Hooper. The church has a sturdy old tower, the walls and pantiled roof were made new last century. Sir Richard Hovel and his wife at a desk are in his canopied wall monument, both wearing ruffs on their mantles, and on a ledge below them are his son and his wife, he in richly chased armour, she finely attired with flowers in her hair and a gown with hooped skirt and open bodice. One of the Fflokes memorials is to Martin of 1705; and a pretty alabaster panel in a frame of green leaves is to the 9th Viscount Downe who married one of the family A portrait plaque shows Sir William Browne with curly hair and lace cravat; he was president of the Royal Collage of Physicians, and died in 1774. Though his wife was not celebrated, her inscription says that she was pleasing, placid, personable, prudent and pious. Less eloquent is a monument showing a bowed woman carrying a child, but it keeps green the memory of Sir Edward West and his wife. He was a lawyer who became Chief Justice of Bombay, but is remembered chiefly as one of the first free traders, having written much on economics and pointed out as long ago as Waterloo year the folly of restricting the import of corn into England.
