Notes:

The chapel of West Marden is referred to in 1414, when all offerings made there were assigned to the vicar of the mother church. Bequests were made to it in 1515 and, under the title of the Chapel of the Blessed Virgin Mary, in 1525. (fn. 88) How much longer it functioned is not known, but it had apparently become secularized before 1585, when John Hewson granted to John Rowe of Bedhampton (Hants) the chapel lying in West Marden between the high road on the north, a meadow called Court Garden on the south and west, and 'a backside' on the east. (Victoria County History). It is possible some of the stone was reused in St Michael, Up Marden.
