Ossington Holy Rood

List of Incumbents

The living is a perpetual donative that has been attached to the manor of Ossington from time immemorial. Very few priests are known when the manor was in the hands of the Order of the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem, and the list is incomplete before the beginning of the C18. The current patron is Mrs Pamela Goedhuis.
