Vicars & Prebends of All Saints, Netheravon, Wiltshire




NETHERAVON  is mentioned in the Domesday Survey under the name NIGRAVE, probably derived from Nigrum Arvum, the Black Heath, which name occurs to-day as a description of some down land, not far from Netheravon.

The holder in the time of King Edward the Confessor (1042-1066) was SPIRTES, a Priest.  At the time of the Domesday Survey it is recorded that "Nigel, the Physician, holds the Church of this Manor."  He is also spoken of as "Presbyter".  The Church is described as being in a ruinous condition, and so much out of repair that it is almost tumbling down.  (It is possible that the present tower dates from this period, and is part of the old original building referred to.)

The Church was given by charter to the Cathedral by Henry I in 1131.  The names of the Prebends of Netheravon can be traced back without a break to 1226:  those of the Vicars during these early centuries have been mostly lost.

The following are some of the variant names as they occur through the centuries:-  Northavene, Nytherhavene, Nedheravene, Netheravene, Netherhaven.  The name as we know it now, Netheravon, goes back to the last 100 years only.
