Hemyock Parish Survey dated 1752


The Milles Parochial Returns were a series of questionnaires sent out by Dean Milles to all the parishes in the county in the 1750’s. The responses came from about 250 parishes, usually from the parson, but sometimes from the schoolmaster or another informed parishioner. The questions covered a wide field, including inquiries about the church. These returns provide a valuable snapshot of the state of the parishes at that time.

Hemyock School Diary for 1911-1912

We have the complete diary for Hemyock School when it was located opposite the Post Office. This page covers a period between 1911 and 1912. Mr Baxter was the headmaster. We will try to upload to this site more pages as time progresses. The school operated from the end of the 19th Century up to the 1970’s when the new school was built. The old school building was then used as social housing for the community.
