Kelly’s Directory of Hampshire – 1915

HEADLEY is a large parish and village near the borders of Surrey and Sussex, 3 miles east from Bordon station on the Bordon and Bentley branch and 4½ miles north from Liphook station on the direct Portsmouth line of the London & South West Railway, and 8 miles south from Farnham, in the eastern division of the county, Alton hundred and Union, petty sessional division, Whitehill sub-division, Farnham county court district, and in the rural deanery of Petersfield and archdeanery and diocese of Winchester.

The air is remarkably dry and salubrious, and the water of great purity. The river Wey and a stream called "Dead Water" flow through the parish. The church of All Saints is an edifice of stone in the Decorated style, consisting of chancel, nave, south porch, vestry and a square tower containing 2 bells: the walls were rebuilt and the chancel and vestry added in 1859; the stained east window is a memorial to the Rev Joseph Ballantine Dykes MA, rector 1848 until his death on 28 March 1872; a new organ costing about £300 was placed in the church in 1885; there are 350 sittings.

The register dates from the year 1538. The living is a rectory, net yearly value £430 with residence, in the gift of the Provost and Fellows of Queen's College, Oxford, and held since 1872 by the Rev Wallis Hay Laverty MA and late fellow of that college.

In the village is a Congregational chapel erected in 1867 with 200 sittings, and at Lindford a United Methodist chapel holding 200 persons; at STANDFORD is a United Methodist chapel and an iron chapel for the brethren, and at DEADWATER HILL a gospel hall.

The Village Institute containing reading and recreational rooms was erected in 1909.

Headley Park on the border of Woolmer Forest is the seat of Charles W McAndrew esq JP. Eveley, the residence of Maj-Gen William Vesey Brownlow CB JP in the village of Standford, is a mansion of stone in the Gothic style.

The Ecclesiastical Commissioners are lords of the manor of Bishops Sutton; the War Department are lords of the manor of Broxhead Warren and Charles W McAndrew esq is lord of the manor of Broxhead.
The principal landowners are Charles W McAndrew esq JP, Miss Petar, A Ingham Whitaker esq JP, JA Chalcraft esq and the War Office.

The soil and subsoil are sandy. The chief crops are barley and oats. The area is 6,223 acres of which 177 consist of roads, wasteland and water; rateable value £23,640; population in 1901 was 5,477 [Kelly's in 1903 said 2,497!], and in 1911 was 7,576 including 3,740 military and 1,050 other occupants of Bordon Camp.
DEADWATER and STANDFORD are supplied with gas by the Bordon & District Gas Co, whose works are in the parish.
