Parish History[edit | edit source]
LODGE-ON-THE-WOLDS, an extra-parochial tract in Bingham district, Notts; 6½ miles S of Bingham.
Lodge on the Wolds is an extra parochial place.
Directories and gazetteers contain references to a house formerly an Inn circa 1724 and described also as "only one house and 25 acres of land... It is said the house here was once a noted Lying-in-Asylum for pregnant ladies, who wished to secrete their illegitimate offspring, and
afterwards pass themselves upon the fashionable world as "virgins chaste and fair". The occupier is identified as Henry RANDALL, the landowner as Henry Cole BINGHAM Esq. Subsequently the Lying In house was operated by John Morley.
The function of Lodge on the Wolds therefore seemed to be an extra parochial place for the temporary housing of new born illegitimate children and their mothers. Since the purpose of the Asylum was to be in an area away from local clergy visitation the registers of neighbours Stanton on the Wolds, Nottinghamshire and Cotgrave, Nottinghamshire post 1700 may not assist in researching suspected illegitimate births.
