Lane-End

LANE-END, a district parish, in the union of Wycombe, hundred of Desborough, county of Buckingham, 4 miles (N.) from Marlow; containing about 1400 inhabitants. The district, until recently, formed part of the parishes of Marlow, West Wycombe, Fingest, and Hambleden, and was assigned to the church of Lane-End by the ordinary, the Bishop of Lincoln. The church, dedicated to the Holy Trinity, was built in 1832, at an expense of nearly £3000, defrayed by J. Meggatt Elwes, Esq., and was endowed with a glebe-house and garden, and a revenue of £100 per annum, by the late Rev. H. C. Ridley, rector of Hambleden, and his friends; patron, the Rector of Hambleden.
