Church Rents, St. Mary at Hill
   In the records of the parish of St. Mary at Hill (E.E.T. Soc.) there are numerous references to the "Church Rents."
   In most cases the references are to certain rents arising from lands and houses appertaining to the church for its upkeep and maintenance. But in one or two instances in which mention is made of repairs to the "cherche Rentes," the words seem to be used to denote either the individual houses of which the rents were appropriated to the church, or possibly a small lane or passage in the parish so designated (See pp. 271 and 357).
   The name frequently occurs in records as a street name, usually applied to a small lane or alley near a church, and probably given to the particular church or parish at some earlier period for its maintenance.
