Parish History

'HASCOMB[E] (St. Peter), a parish, in the union of Hambledon, First division of the hundred of Black-heath, W. division of Surrey, 3½ miles (S. E. by S.) from Godalming; containing 335 inhabitants. It is situated on the road from Godalming to Horsham. Hascomb Hill, embellished with wood, forms a delightful pleasure-ground to the seat of Park Hatch, and is much frequented by visiters at all seasons; the view is panoramic, and that part of it from the terrace, embracing the high ridge of chalk hills well known as the Hog's Back, with the town of Guildford towards the north, Hindhead to the west, and Blackdown and the long range of Sussex Downs to the south, is singularly beautiful. The Wey and Arun Junction canal adjoins the eastern part of the parish. There is stone of good quality for building and road-making. The living is a rectory, valued in the king's books at £6. 3. 9., and in the gift of the Storie family: the tithes have been commuted for £256. 10., and the glebe comprises 103 acres. The church contains portions in the early and decorated English styles. Conyers Middleton, author of the Life of Cicero, was rector of the parish.'[1]
