Addlestone  Surrey


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

ADDLESTONE, a village and a chapelry in Chertsey parish, Surrey. The village stands 2 miles SSE of Chertsey; and has a station on the Chertsey branch of the South-western railway, and a post office under Chertsey. It contains the residence of Mrs. S.Hall; and is noted for a very large oak-tree, called the Crouch Oak, beneath which tradition asserts Wickliffe to have preached and Queen Elizabeth to have dined. The chapelry was constituted in 1838, and is a vicarage in the diocese of Winchester. Value, £150.* Patron, the Bishop of Winchester. Pop., 2,896. Houses, 535.
