Hirzel Carey De Lisle, 1836-1911
This booklet, which has been very kindly donated to us by the author, Philip Walters, relates the history of the first vicar of Galleywood, the Reverend Hirzel Carey De Lisle. The author is a Londoner. He was able to indulge his love of history when in 1998 he and his wife moved from the busy metropolis to the village of Galleywood, south of Chelmsford, just at the time the Galleywood Historical Society was formed. In about 2006 a council building on Galleywood Common became vacant and was obtained by the parish council on behalf of the local community. Now the Galleywood Heritage Centre, it is the base for Philip and his colleagues' heritage work.
