Headley  Hampshire


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

HEADLEY, a village, a parish, and a sub-district, in the district of Farnborough and county of Southampton. The village stands near the boundary with Surrey, about 4½ miles N of Liphook r. station, and 8 S by W of Farnham; is noted for the salubrity of its air and the purity of its waters; and has a post office under Liphook, and a workhouse. ...

The parish comprises 6, 977 acres. Real property, £5, 448. Pop., 1, 320. Houses, 297. The property is divided among a few. The manor belongs to the Bishop of Winchester. Nearly one half of the land recently was waste; but much of this, in 1865 and previous years, was reclaimed. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Winchester. Value, £776.* Patron, Queen's College, Oxford. The church is chiefly later English, and was restored in 1858. There is an endowed school.—The sub-district contains also the parishes of Kingsley and Bramshott; and is a poor law incorporation under Gilbert's act. Pop., 3, 128.
