Flaunden

FLAUNDEN, a chapelry, in the parish and union of Hemel-Hempstead, hundred of Dacorum, county of Hertford, 5½ miles (W. S. W.) from King's-Langley; containing 295 inhabitants. The living is a perpetual curacy, separated from the mother church in 1834, and in the gift of the Hon. C. C. Cavendish: the impropriate tithes have been commuted for £160, and the curate's for £50. The chapel, dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene, was formerly situated in a beautiful valley, about two miles from Flaunden, but has been lately taken down, and a new one built in the village.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 7th edition, published in 1848.
