Oxhey - The History of a Parish - Informative Booklet

 The Booklet "Oxhey: The History of a Parish" by Marjorie Bray was published in 1979, in the centenary year of St Matthew's Parish, Oxhey, It provides a useful history of the church, plus a good backgruond of the history of the parish, a list of vicars, etc. and at the time of writing second hand copies were available online. The land on which the church was built was donated by Jonathan King of Wiggenhall, which  I mentioned on this blog recently.
Oxhey was formed from the parishes of Bushey, Watford and Northwood (Middlesex) and I have used this opportunity to give Oxhey a proper "home" page.

Note that I can only afford to include reviews of new books and booklets relating to Hertfordshire if I am sent a review copy.
