Furneux Pelham  Hertfordshire


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

FURNEUX-PELHAM, a parish in Bishop-Stortford district, Herts; on the river Ash, and on the verge of the county, 3½ miles E of West Mill r. station, and 5½ NNW of Bishop-Stortford. It has a post office under Buntingford. Acres, 2, 535. Real property, £4, 385. Pop., 620. Houses, 121. ...

The property is divided among a few. The manor belonged, at the Conquest, to the Pelhams of Stanmer; passed to the Brocklesbys; belonged, in the time of Henry III., to Simon de Furneux; and passed to the Lees, the Newports, the Morleys, and others. The living is a vicarage, annexed to the vicarage of Brent-Pelham, in the diocese of Rochester. The church is ancient but good; and contains a number of monuments, some fine carved work, and a fine marble monument. There are chapels for Wesleyans and Primitive Methodists, a national school, and charities £24.
