In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Hailes like this:

HAILES, or HAYLES, a parish in Winchcomb district, Gloucester; under the Cotswolds, 2 miles NE of Winchcomb, and 6 SE of Beckford r. station. Posttown, Winchcomb under Cheltenham. Acres, 1, 520. Real property, £2, 705. Pop., 102. Houses, 17. The manor belonged anciently to Osgot, the Saxon; and belongs now to Lord Sudeley. ...

A Cistertian abbey was founded here, in 1246, by Richard, Earl of Cornwall; was given, at the dissolution, to Sir Thomas Seymour: and passed to the Marquis of Northampton and the Tracies. Some interesting remains of the abbey are still standing. The living is a p. curacy, annexed to the vicarage of Didbrook, in the diocese of Gloucester and Bristol.
