Thursley  Surrey


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

THURSLEY, a parish, with a village, in Hambledon district, Surrey; 3½ miles W of Witley r. station, and 5½ SW of Godalming. It has a post-office under Godalming. Acres, 4,348. Real property, £2,968. Pop., 505. Houses, 153. Cosford House is the seat of Col. Hare. The parish itself, and Thunder hill, not far from the village, are believed to have got their name from associations with The Scandinavian deity Thor or Thunor. ...

The living is a p. curacy in the diocese of Winchester. Value, £85. Patron, the Rev. J. Chandler. The church was restored in 1842. There are an Independent chapel of 1865, a national school, and charities £8.
