Can anyone tell me who was the Rector (Vicar?) in 1692?

    I live abroad so am unable to visit Wittersham. Can someone go into the church and look on the wall of the North Aisle where the list of rectors etc is shown and let me know who the rector (?) was in 1692. Thanks.

    Dear Pat,
    I am sorry you haven’t received an answer to your question more quickly! I have only just discovered this site as we are thinking of buying a house in Wittersham(we live 3 miles away). I hope to go to the village tommorrow (Sun 25th March 2012) to see the house, so will have a look for you, assuming you still want the information? Is it JUST the Rector in 1692 you want (I presume it is). My email is:
    [reveal email] if you want to communicate via that, although I am quite happy to do it through this forum if you wish to remain anonymous?
