LINCH, a parish, in the union of Midhurst, hundred of Easebourne, rape of Chichester, W. division of Sussex, 6 miles (N. N. W.) from Midhurst; containing 70 inhabitants. The manor is described in the Domesday survey under the name of Lince, and at the time when that record was compiled, there were two ministers here, with a church. In the 16th century, the place was parcel of the estates of the dukes of Norfolk; it afterwards became the property of Viscount Montague, and eventually of the family of Poyntz. The parish may be divided into the two portions of Woodman's Green, a well-wooded district on the road from Midhurst to Liphook; and Linch Farm, occupying about 700 acres at the base of the downs, and consisting of a fertile soil of chalk marl. The church formerly stood at the latter place, but falling into a very dilapidated state, the present edifice was built at Woodman's Green, and there are now no remains of the old structure. Woodman's Green is within the limits of the borough of Midhurst, under the Reform act. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the king's books at £3. 12. 8½.; net income, £57; patron, the Earl of Egmont.
