1841: Curate Dixon's unassuming demeanor

Updated: Dec 5, 2023

A few weeks since we announced the death of Mr Plimley our late Vicar; and we believe no man was more beloved and reflected. Mr Maberly has read himself in, and is now the Vicar, and, we hear, will take upon himself the duties of the parish immediately. On Sunday se'nnight Mr Dixon, who has been curate for upwards of seventeen years, officiated for the last time. The church was crowded, and deep and universal were the expressions of regret at the separation. Mr Dixon was much and deservedly liked in the church. To the poor, he and Mrs Dixon were kind and attentive; and his gentlemanly and unasuming demeanour endeared him to all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance.
