Burgums and Burghams of the "FF" family tree lived here, or nearby.

TAYNTON ST LAWRENCE was endowed by Thomas Pury of the Grove, lord of the manor of Taynton and Minsterworth, and built after the original church was destroyed during the English Civil War in 1643. It was built during the Commonwealth in 1647 and a churchyard added. It is rectangular building of stone pointing north/south and consisted of a four-bay nave and a low square turret on the northern gable. The north porch was added in 1825, together with a gallery and a schoolroom. The church was restored in 1865 and 1870. A two-bay chancel and organ chamber were added in 1894. The church has a very particularly attractive font, rather like a goblet decorated with cherub heads.
