Rev Henry Stiles would appear to have baptized, married and buried many of
my ancestors and their families. I went on a tour of St. Matthews a month
or so ago - very interesting and I would recommend it even if you don't
have family history connections there. Also good to sit in the
approximate pew my ancestor used. Can't be sure because they have been
moved about a bit but I would have been close.

Thanks for that.
It was on Marsden's visits to the Reverend Henry Stiles at St
Matthew's Church at when he succumbed apparently to a cold infection
and he died at the rectory there.
I also have some intrests in the Rev. Henry Stiles.

A little bit more about the "flogging parson". He shared a pew at St.
Matthews, Windsor, towards the end of his life with my ancestor - an
ex-convict. I've often wondered whether there was conversation!
and servants generally sat along the walls, the well-to-do (or maybe
who could afford to pay for the privilege) were in the pews down the
of the church.
