In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Alfold like this:
ALFOLD, Aldfold, or Awfold, a parish in the district of Hambledon, and counties of Surrey and Sussex; on the Wey and Arundel canal, 6½ miles SE of Witley r. station, and 8 SSE of Godalming. It has a post office under Horsham. Acres, 2,883. Real property, £1,970. Pop., 535. Houses, 96. ...
Much of the surface is wood land; and little yields any grain but oats. Several French refugees from the massacre on St. Bartholomew's day settled here, and erected a glass manufactory. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Winchester. Value, £205.* Patron, the Rev. L. W. Elliott. The church is Norman.
