Long Description:
The Church is a Grade II* listed building.
From the church website at (visit link) :-
"The name of Martin Hussingtree has evolved from two Saxon manors of Meretun, (‘farmstead’ or ‘estate by the boundary’) and Husa’s Tree (the old English person’s name of ‘Husa’). In 972 the parish was known as Husan Treo and belonged to Pershore Abbey. By Domesday 1086 it had passed to Westminster Abbey. Later a small portion of the parish was given back to Pershore Abbey and the parish remained in the hands of these two monasteries until the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1536-39.
The two manors of ‘Meretun’ and ‘Hosa’s Tree’ otherwise known as ‘Merton’ and ‘Hosintre’ continued as two separate manors until the 18th Century when, through an inheritance, they passed to the second Pinson Wilmot and were merged into one manor. The parish by then was known as ’Martin Hussingtree’."
