Cashio  Hertfordshire


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

CASHIO, a hamlet and a hundred in Herts. The hamlet is in Watford parish; and lies adjacent to Watford town, the river Gade, and the Northwestern railway. It bears also the name of Cashiobury; and it occupies the site of an ancient town of the Cassii, and was given by King Offa to St. Alban's Abbey. ...

Cashiobury Park, immediately N of it, belonged once to the Morrisons and the Capels; and is now the seat of the Earl of Essex. The mansion is a Tudor edifice, containing many fine family portraits; and the park is spacious, and was laid out by Le Notre. The hundred extends from Bucks and Middlesex, north-north-eastward, past the hamlet and past St. Alban's, to within 2¾ miles of Stevenage; and contains nineteen parishes. Acres, 82,090. Pop. in 1851, 31,009; in 1861, 33,058. Houses, 6,522.
