Ryme-Intrinsica (St. Hyppolite)

RYME-INTRINSICA (St. Hyppolite), a parish and liberty, in the union of Sherborne, Sherborne division of Dorset, 6¼ miles (S. W.) from Sherborne; containing 193 inhabitants. The parish comprises by measurement 1006 acres of land, principally in dairy-farms; the low grounds are watered by a rivulet named Ryme Brook. A market and a fair were granted in the 26th of Edward I., but both have been long disused. Within the liberty were anciently a royal mansion and park; the site of the former, which was standing in the reign of James I., is still called Court Hill, and commands a fine view. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the king's books at £6. 5. 8., and in the patronage of the Crown, in right of the duchy of Cornwall: the tithes have been commuted for £170, and the glebe comprises 19 acres.
