North Chapel  Sussex


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

NORTHCHAPEL, a village and a parish in Midhurst district, Sussex. The village stands on a gentle declivity, adjacent to an affluent of the river Arun, 2 miles S of the boundary with Surrey, 4 S E of Haslemere r. station, and 5 N N W of Petworth; commands a good view of the downs of Sussex and Surrey; and has a post-office under Petworth. ...

The parish comprises 3, 854 acres. Real property, £2, 562. Pop. in 1851, 864; in 1861, 785. Houses, 164. The decrease of pop. was caused by migration to large towns. The property is divided among a few. The manor belongs to Lord Leconfield. Broadlands is the seat of G. Baker, Esq. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Chichester. Value, £284. * Patron, Lord Leconfield. The church is plain but good, and has a W tower. There are a Sunday school with £10 a year from endowment, and alms-houses with £45.
