fiction Ward, Humphrey, Mrs: 1888: Robert Elsmere
book 1 chapter 2:-
... The vicarage, under the shade of which she [Mrs Thornborough] was sitting, was a new gray stone building with wooden gables, occupying the site of what had once been the earlier vicarage house of Long Whindale, the primitive dwelling-house of an incumbent, whose chaplery, after sundry augmentations, amounted to just twenty-seven pounds a year. The modern house, though it only contained sufficient accommodation for Mr. and Mrs. Thornborough, one geust, and two maids, would have seemed palatial to those rustic clerics of the past from whose ministrations the lonely valley had drawn its spiritual sustenance in times gone by. ...
