Parish notes

An independent parsonage in Bagimond (p.103), the church may be identified with that of Toethocalde of which the abbey of Holyrood were allegedly patrons in 1264 (CPL i, 418). Before 1504, however, the parsonage had become annexed to Fail, one of whose brethern normally appears to have served the vicarage (Prot. Bk. Simon, nos. 127, 393; RMS iv no.2555; vi no.1645; Reg. of Pres. ii, 73). Cowan 1967, 199.
