St Mark's church at Staplefield (2 of 5)

The Large Version is available.
Splect Open Document to view a pamphlet “History of Staplefield” written by Rev. W. A. Dengate, vicar of Staplefield from 1930 to when he died in 1948. Fortunately, the pamphlet was completed “in the year of our Lord in 1947”.

I love that so many of the names listed by Rev’d Dengate from the subsidy rolls of 1327 are still familiar today - origins of Stanbridge, Biggs, Pilstye, Brantridge, Tyes and Windhills which is the name of the house attached to Handcross Village Butchers. The pamphlet also mentions Little Bletchleys which I believe is the original name for Old House.
I notice that in picture 1 of St Mark’s the altar is the same one that is pictured in St John’s chapel in the pamphlet. It is still there today.
