HAMBLEDEN, a village and a parish in the district of Henley and county of Buckingham. The village stands near the river Thames, 2 miles from the boundary with Oxfordshire, and 3¼ NNE of Henley-on-Thames r. station; was once a market town; and has a post-office under Henley-on-Thames. The parish comprises 6, 615 acres. Pop. in 1851, 1, 365; in 1861 1, 464. Houses, 294. The increase of pop. arose mainly from an extension of the chair turning trade. The property is much subdivided. The manor belonged to Earl Algar; passed to the Clares, the Badlesmeres, the Scropes, and the Claytons; and belongs now to the Murrays. The present manor house was built, in 1604, by the Earl of Sunderland; and gave refuge, in 1646, to Charles I., on his way to St. Albans. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Oxford. Value, £1, 200. Patron, the Rev. W. H. Ridley. The church is ancient and cruciform; seems to have had originally a Norman central tower; has now a western tower of 1721; includes portions of early decorated and later English; was repaired in 1 859; and contains a Norman font, some curious brasses of the Sheepwash family, and a fine alabaster monument of Sir Cope d’Oyley. The vicarage of Lane End is a separate benefice. There are an Independent chapel, and charities £33. St. Thomas Cantilupe was a native; and the second Lord Sandes was buried in the church.
