Rotherfield Greys 1863 Dutton, Allen & Co Directory listing

GREYS, commonly called Rotherfield Greys, is a large parish, extending to the town of Henley-on-Thames, 7 1/2 miles distant from Reading, and covering an area of six miles, from the banks of the river Thames to Nettlebed. The houses are much scattered, and not sufficiently united to form a village. The Church is a neat ancient building, in excellent repair. There are several fine monumental brasses, and in the chancel is a magnificent monument, raised by William, Earl of Banbury, in 1605, to the memory of a branch of the Knollys family.- Under a canopy supported by pillars of black marble are the effigies of Sir Francis Knollys and wife, by the side of whom is an infant. On the two sides are represented, kneeling, seven sons and six daughters, and a daughter-in-law, the Countess of Banbury; above which are the Earl of Banbury and Countess, kneeling before a desk. The living is a rectory, in the presentation of Trinity College, Oxford. The Rev. North Pinder is the incumbent. There is a district Church, dedicated to the Holy Trinity, 2 1/2 miles from the pariah church ; the Rev. William P. Pinckney is the perpetual curate; and another at Highmoor End, dedicated to St. Paul, of which the Rev. Horace G. Monro is the perpetual curate. There is a Parochial and an Infant School. The population of the parish in 1861 was 1761.
