Miscellaneous 

 Extraparochial - 
" An extra-parochial area was land uninhabited in Anglo-Saxon times and outside the jurisdiction of any civil or ecclesiastical parish. No poor or church rates were paid, though tithes in theory went to the Crown.
A resident could choose the nearest convenient parish for baptisms, etc."  
(The Parish Registers of Herefordshire, J Harnden, 1987, ISBN 0 9512347 0 6).
