Fenstanton History - Cassey 1862
FENSTANTON - in 1862

FENSTANTON is a parish and village, situated in the road from Huntingdon to Cambridge, about 1½ mile south-east of St. Ives. It is in the hundred of Toseland, and contained, by the last census, 1,070 inhabitants. The church, an interesting, architectural, and handsome structure, is dedicated to St. Peter, the east window being magnificent, both as to size and design, its width being 17 feet. The tower is open to the nave and aisles. The exterior of this church has lately been repaired.

 

The living is a discharged vicarage, in the incumbency of the Rev. Stanley Walton, M.A. Trinity College, Cambridge, has the gift of presentation. The Rev. Edward Bassett is curate. The tithes were commuted in 1802; rectorial, about 135 acres ; vicarial, about 83 acres.

 

There is a Calvinist chapel, also a Union Meeting-house, lately erected. There are two schools, National and British; the former is a handsome appropriate building, with residence for the master. The charities, which are not very considerable, are partly applied to the support of the school, repairs of the church, and distribution amongst the poor. The parish comprises 2,405 acres.

 

The Rev. L. R. Brown is lord of the manor.
