Centuries Past

Research & Notes on a Family Tree

Cosby, Leicestershire, England


Notes: From: 'The King's England - Leicestershire and Rutland' by Arthur Mee
The stream runs down its street as it has done for centuries, crossed by little wooden bridges, but industry has marched this way, and only the church remains of old, with its roots in the thirteenth century.
It has its roodloft stairs still, with a sculptured faun at the doorway, and ancient beams in the roof have carved bosses, one a grinning grotesque with protruding tongue, another gnashing his teeth. There is a fifteenth century screen and a long dug-out chest bound with iron. The east window has fine modern figures of Our Lord in a rich red cloak, with archangels gorgeously arrayed in purple and green on either side and two angels kneeling above.
Among the names on the list of rectors is a forgotten Samuel Pepys of the famous Samuel's own century, and Thomas Rickards, who was here for 56 years in more recent times.
