Pope has handed down his name to posterity in the following quotation: “Such late was Walsh, the muses’ judge and friend, Who justly knew to blame and to commend; To failings mild, but zealous for desert, The clearest head, and the sincerest heart.” The living (St. Michael) is a rectory in the archd. of Salop, diocese of Hereford, valued at £11. 10s. 2½d.: pres. net income, £249: patron, Mrs. Moillett: pres. incumbent, F.

The parish church forms the private chapel of the house, being connected with it by a gallery, which is fitted up as the family pew: it is a chaste building, very splendidly decorated.
