"Population 574. Two charity schools, held on Thursdays and Sundays, one containing 28 boys, and one in which 55 girls are instructed; both supported by voluntary contributions. The poor avail themselves of the means of education which are sufficient, but the minister regrets that from the low state of their finances, they are unable to open the preceding schools every day in the week, and he also states that it would be very desirable if Lord Oxford's endowment could be rendered beneficial to the parish. "
