Paulerspury comprises a W tower, and an aisled and clerestoreyed nave with N and S porches and an Early English chancel with a two-bay chapel on its N side. Apart from the tower it was largely rebuilt in the 1840s.
Paulerspury was held by Robert from William Peverel in 1086, the estate including a priest. This Robert also held Great Houghton and South Wingfield, and all three were later held by a family called de Paveley, presumably descendants. Geoffrey de Paveley gave rents from Paulersbury to the abbey of St James, near Northampton, in the reign of Henry II. Walter, parson of Paulersbury, is recorded as a witness in the late 12thc. The advowson remained with the manor until the mid-18thc., when it passed to New College, Oxford.
