WINDLESHAM (St. John the Baptist), a parish, in the union of Chertsey, First division of the hundred of Woking, W. division of Surrey; containing, with the hamlet of Bagshot, 1899 inhabitants. The manor was given by Edward the Confessor to the church of Westminster, and, after the Dissolution, passed to St. John's College, Oxford, to which it still belongs. The village has a very pleasing appearance, displaying an intermixture of forest-trees with gentlemen's seats; but the uncultivated commons around look dark and dreary, except in the latter end of the summer, when the heaths are in blossom. The living is a rectory, valued in the king's books at £10. 9. 7., and in the patronage of the Crown; net income, £404. The church was built in 1680, and enlarged in 1838 at a cost of £1380. There is a chapel of ease at Bagshot; also places of worship for Independents, Wesleyans, and Baptists; and a national school endowed with £175 three per cents., bequeathed by the Rev. Edward Cooper, late rector. Hool Mill, in the parish, erected by an abbot of Chertsey in the reign of Edward III., is subject to a permanent rent-charge of £8 in support of the poor; and there are almshouses for six men and women, erected by James Butler, Esq. The parish contains numerous chalybeate springs.
