materials, after which, of course, every vestige of the priory was swept away. On the south side of the street, eastward of Trinity church, stand the late Perp. buildings of the free school; and opposite the same church is the hospital, founded by Archb. Geo. Abbott for the benefit of his native town. The house, in which he is said to have been born, is still, or was lately, standing close to the river below the bridge, The outer walls of the keep, a gateway, and other rough fragments of the castle still remain. "Guldeford " is one of the estates bequeathed by K. Alfred to his nephew Æthelwald. (Asser's Alfred, by Wise, 77.)

50. Hascombe.—A small church, having an apse at the east end, and a bell-turret of wood over nearly the centre of the nave.

51. Haslemere.—A curacy annexed to Chidingfold. The church was originally so poor a building, and has been so much patched and pared, as to be undeserving of notice.

55. Horsell. —(A. D. 1291) "Capell' de Horshall et Pirford;" which entry, as remarked elsewhere, will admit the existence of two churches.

56. Horsleys, The.—The Horslei of (D. B.), described as belonging to the Archbishop of Canterbury, " de victu monachorum,—for provision for the monks," must be East Horsley, where was formerly a palace of the metropolitan, and which is still a peculiar of the archbishop; wherefore the name "Orselei," with the church, must be assigned to West Horsley. In (A. D. 1291) two churches are mentioned, but not distinguished.—A priory of Black Nuns is said to have existed at Horsley in
