MAPPERTON, a parish in the hundred of BEAMINSTER-FORUM and REDHONE, Bridport division of the county of DORSET, 2 miles (S.E. by E.) from Beaminster, containing 123 inhabitants.

The living is a rectory, in the peculiar jurisdiction of the Dean of Salisbury, rated in the king's books at 8. 3. 1. H. C. Compton, Esq. was patron in 1822. The church, dedicated to St. Mary, was, in 1291, styled a chapel to Netherbury: it was rebuilt, in 1704, by Richard Broadrep, Esq., and the interior handsomely fitted up: in the chancel is a fine monument of the Broadreps, and underneath it the family vault. There is a small churchyard, but the substratum being rock, the inhabitants bury at Netherbury, for which privilege they annually pay a trifling acknowledgment.
