Also some Monumental Inscriptions  Noted by Rev Bryan Faussett noted 1758, added 17th March 2008

16. This Church, which is very small, and shamefully out of Repair, consists only of the Chancell, and Body.

17. It has neither Altar Peice, nor Font; but, instead of the Latter, is a large Stone (placed on a Larger, by Way of Base) on which the Old Font formerly stood, which serves to set ye Bason upon.

18. It has no Steeple; but a small crack’t Bell hangs near the Top of the Roof, at ye West End. It seems to have an Inscription upon it, which, however, for Want of a Ladder, I could not get at.

19. In the Body, are 2 very ancient Flat Stones, without Inscription. 1 of them has a Cross Fleury raised on it.

20. A Round Arch, and Pillasters, between the Chancell and the Body; and a round Arch, and carved Pillaster, at ye Outside of the South Door, shew it to be a very Ancient Building.

21. This Church was dedicated to St. Oswald. It is a Chapel of Ease to Lyminge.

22. The Present Chaplain is Mr. Ralph PRICE.
(See Secker Visn. 1758, III. No.183).
