Hose Village Map


 Extract from White's Leicester and Rutland Directory 1877

HOSE, a parish and village, pleasantly situated in the Vale of Belvoir, on the banks of a rivulet, half a mile S. of the Grantham Canal, and 7 miles N. of Melton Mowbray, in Framland Hundred, Melton Mowbray., Union and County Court District, in 1871 contained 403 persons, living in 94 houses, on 2140 acres of land. The parish, which has a rateable value of 3332 18s. 9d., is intersected by the Canal, on which there is a wharf here, and it is bounded on the north by Nottinghamshire. The soil is chiefly a fertile clay, and the surface flat. The Duke of Rutland is lord of the manor, formerly called Howes or Hoche ; but a great part of the soil belongs to Thomas D. Hall, John and George Crompton, and Samuel Burton, Esqrs., and Miss Elizabeth Linney. In 1473 it was held as part of Segrave manor, and several portions of it were held by Belvoir Priory, Leicester Abbey, and Croxton Abbey. The Church (St. Michael) is an ancient structure consisting of nave, aisles, and chancel, with a tower, containing three bells, and was partly repaired and the bells recast in 1857, at a cost of 93. The living is a discharged vicarage, valued in K.B. at 7 2s. 6d., and now at 105, being augmented with 200 of Q.A.B. in 1808, and having 45 acres of glebe. The Rev. John Bradshaw, M.A., of Granby, is incumbent, and the Duke of Rutland is patron and also impropriator of the rectorial tithes, which were commuted (as well as the small tithes) for allotments of land at the enclosure in 1792. The BAPTIST CHAPEL built here in 1818, and enlarged in 1841, is licensed for marriages. The NATIONAL SCHOOL, on the south side of the church, built by subscription in 1845, was enlarged in 1875, at a coast of 200, of which 92 was given by the Duke of Rutland, and the rest raised by a rate. There is a house for the teacher attached to the school. The poor have a yearly rent-charge of 20s. out of the Town Close, left by Robert Hickling in 1729, and the interest of 65 left by William Shilcock and other donors, and now vested with William Shilcock, Esq., of Frisby, to whose family there are four monumental tablets in the church. The parish feast is on the Sunday before Michaelmas.
