Heyshott  Sussex


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

HEYSHOTT, a parish in Chichester district, Sussex; near the river Rother, and the Haslemere and Chichester railway, 2 miles SSE of Midhurst. Post town, Midhurst. Acres, 2, 171. Real property, £1, 815. Pop., 396. Houses, 83. The property is divided among a few. The manor belonged to William de Percy, Earl of Montgomery; descended to the Earls of Northumberland; passed, in the time of Henry VIII., to Sir William Fitzwilliam, and in 1761, to the Earl of Egremont; and belongs now to Lord Leconfield. ...

Part of the surface is downs; and there are vestiges of an ancient camp. The living is a rectory, annexed to the rectory of Stedham, in the diocese of Chichester. The church is decorated and later English, and was recently restored.
