Eashing

EASHING, a tything, in the parish, and First division of the hundred, of Godalming, union of Guildford, W. division of Surrey, 1½ mile (W.) from Godalming. This is probably the Esc-ing mentioned in King Alfred's will, which he gave, with other estates, to his nephew Æthelm. Eashing House is situated on a commanding brow overlooking the beautiful valley of Eashing, and the grounds are of considerable extent. Here, also, is the sweetly-situated residence of Busbridge. The river Wey runs through the tything.
