The River ]\Iaese, which flows within a stone's throw of the hall on its southern side, divides the Counties of Derbv and Stafford on the south.

They were most probably brought here by the Earl of Dorset; his connection with the Civil Wars would readily account for his possession of numbers of these weapons. The Taxation Roll of 1291 gives the annual value of the Rectory of Croxall at £10 13s. Shortly after this the Priory of Repton obtained the episcopal sanction to the appropriating of the great tithes to their own use, and to the appointment of the Vicar of Croxall.

After the death of his son, also Thomas, without issue, the Croxall estate passed by his will to his nephew, Thomas Prinsep Levett Esq., second son of his sister Frances, who had married Theophilus Levett of Wichnor, Esquire, in the county of Stafford. 27 oil the left, Quarterly 1st and 4tli, Horton, as above, and (for distinction) a canton, ermine ; 2nd and 3rd, Wilinot of Osmaston, suhle^ on a fess, or^ between three eagles' heads, couped, argent., as many escallops, gules, all within a bordure engrailed of the third, over all an inescutcheon bearing Horton ; and, as above, " Robert John Wilmot, Anne Beatrix Horton," beneath, "Married 1806."

The first shield in the above window is unfortunately an error.

This gentleman, in the year 1835, assumed the name and arms of Prinsep, in conjunction with that of Levett, and his son Thomas Levett Prinsep Esq., is now owner and lord of the manor of Croxall.

To the south east of Croxall Church, and just outside the Churchyard stands an Ancient British Tumulus ; its height measures twelve feet, and its circumference forty yards. Thomas Curzon did not marry a Horton, he married Margaret Hartington, and the arms of Ilartington being very similar to Horton, argent, a buck's head, caboshed, with a fleur-de-lis between the horns, gules, gave rise, I conclude, to this error.

The Tower, thirty-six feet in height, with an area of eleven feet by nine, rises on the west side, and contains a two-light decorated window in its western wall.

In the west wall, between the door and tower, is a large lancet window.

The Lords sent an order for the Funeral of the Countess of Dorset. She died early in May, and the public funeral was not carried out until September, as the above extracts prove. In the north-east angle of the nave stands the pulpit of Caen stone, also erected in the same year, and immediately above it in the wall is a stone corbel intended for the support of an ^'Sio^y of a Saint, upon which is carved a grotesque figure of which a drawing is given.

Several writers have fallen into the error of stating that she was buried in Westminster Abbey, but that was not the case. On the north side of the chancel is an organ chamber erected in the year 18G8, in which stands an organ presented in the same 3'ear.
