Parish History

'MICKLEHAM, or Littleborough (St. Michael), a parish, in the union of Dorking, Second division of the hundred of Copthorne and Effingham, W. division of Surrey, 2 miles (S. by E.) from Leatherhead; containing 787 inhabitants. The parish comprises 2849 acres, of which 175 are common or waste land: it includes the beautiful demesne of Norbury. The village is pleasantly situated in a valley, on the road from London to Dorking, and consists principally of one street of respectable and well-built houses, sheltered by surrounding eminences, among which, Box Hill, so called from the box-trees planted on its southern declivity by the Earl of Arundel in the reign of Charles I., is remarkable for the beauty of its views. The river Mole runs through the parish, and is crossed by Burford bridge. The living is a rectory, valued in the king's books at £13, and in the gift of Sir G. Talbot, Bart.: the tithes have been commuted for £425, and the glebe comprises 35 acres. The church was partly rebuilt, and restored in an elegant manner, in 1823, at a cost of £2254, the interior now forming a faithful and curious specimen of early Norman architecture; the chancel was fitted up with stalls, at an expense of £500, by the Rev. A. Burmester. The Roman Stane-street from Sussex passed over Mickleham Downs; and there are remains of an ancient chapel at a place called Chapel Farm. Madame D'Arblay resided in the parish.'[1]
