' DEANERY OF DORCHESTER.
BRADFORD PEVERELL. - Two Chalices, a Paten, and a Flagon, inscribed with the sacred monogram. The date of this set, with an account of what became of the older plate, is set forth in the following extract from the parish register, dated Dec. 20, 1813. It appears that the old plate consisted of " One silver cup and cover, one silver salver, also two pewter plates." It then goes on to say that " The above silver cup and cover and silver salver being only a small common waiter, the cup also too small for the sacred purpose and exceedingly old, were disposed of towards the purchase of the following articles presented to the Parish Church of Bradford Peverell by Robert Pattison Esqr. i Large Flagon, i Large Salver, 2 Chalices. Middleton Onslow, Rector." - A Chalice, Paten, and Flagon, a thank-offering to the Church, bearing the sacred monogram, and inscribed " D. D. Hastings B. Middleton A.S. 1885." The two pewter plates mentioned above, no longer in use, are inscribed " In usum Ecclesiae Bradford Peverel 1707 " and " 1713."
