New Monumental Inscriptions on CD and download of Great Haseley

St Peters Parish Church Great Haseley

This CD of Monumental Inscriptions for Great Haseley and Rycote Chapel  is now available.

Great Haseley is an extensive parish some 9 miles east of Oxford and lies across the main road to London. It comprises the village of Great Haseley, and the Liberties of Little Haseley, Latchford, Lobb and Rycote. The last three are now only farmsteads, having been depopulated by enclosures.

The transcript records over 1000 separate memorials with photographs and transcripts of each of them. The earliest recorded and transcribed is dated 1581 and range to the 2010s. Family names such as WOODBRIDGES, SHRIMPTON, LEWIN, HURST, and COOPERS feature many times. One interesting find is a more recent headstone from 2015 for John Paskin Taylor who was a British Field Hockey player and played in the 1952 Olympics.

The CD or download file contains photographs of all the monuments, with their transcriptions, plus a name index and a clickable plan of the churchyard. Where possible the team have cross referenced to other sources such as the Burial Registers for the parish to validate the entry on the monument.

OXF-MI-GTH, is available, at £6 plus postage, from the Society through our shopping cart – for the Download  or the CD
