ORIGIN- OP PEW RENTS.
Th Practice Date Back a Long Way
in En eland.
When did the practice, of charging
poVr rents begin? The question' cab-
not bo precisely answered, but some
accounts which dale back to 1533
bIiott that the principlo of allotting
sittings to particular people and
charging for the same was then in
force. "In yo church at Whallej"
there was a disputo regarding a very
largo square pew known as St. Anthony's
cage, which belonged to the
Towneley family, lords of the ma
nor, and other pews near to itv The
dispute was referred to the
of Sir John Towneley, the lord
then living, and his award was as
"My man, ShuUleworth, of
Hacking, made this pew, and here will
I ait when I come to church. And
my cousin, Trowell, shall make ono
behind mo if ho chooses, and my
Iconnc, Shcrbourne, shall make one
on tho oilier side, and Mr. Catlcrall
behind him, and for the resi
due tne use- 6nau ne nrst come
first speed, and that will mnke
tho proud wives of Whalley rise
betimes and come to church." And
such is the feshfon at the present day.
At St. Lawrence's church, Reading,
there is an entry, under date 1S47,
for reforming the mayor's pew for
tho magistrates' wives. In 173G the
church wardens decreed that women

m'tinns filimilrl nntf 4rl. each. For Still
better positions near the pu'IpH the (
charge was Cd. At Dorchester, in
1G25, Robert Polden's wife is noticed
as paying Is. Cd. for a seat in the
"women's square." So thert is reason
forbelioving that originally pew-rents
were charges made every time particular
seats were occupied. It is
easy to see how such a charge would
become commuted to a yearly rent
when persons wished always to have a
