Meet the Vicars of Titchfield

1302-2010

In 1231, Peter des Roches, Bishop of Winchester, gifted St. Peter's Church to the newly founded St. Mary’s Abbey to the north of the village. The canons were allowed, from 1283, to appoint one of themselves as vicar, and this relationship continued until the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1537. Few parishes can claim a longer list of incumbents.

Shakespeare Immortalized Henry Wriothesley, 3rd Earl of Southampton. 

One good turn deserves another!

Henry Wriothesley was Shakespeare's sole dedicatee and purported patron, making possible some of the greatest plays and poems ever penned. Join Lord Montagu in paying it forward in service to the living  record of their memory.
