5d Kings Lynn, St. Nicholas, c 1450, detail of angel from roof.
A dependency of St. Margaret's in Lynn, St. Nicholas attempted to have
a christening font, to conduct marriages, and to perform the rite of purification
after childbirth. Authority to perform these rites would have made
“the chapel equal to the parish church” [Book of Margery Kempe, ch. 25:
1340-1381]. Margery Kempe stongly opposed this. For more about the church
and controversy see St Nicholas, Lynn.
