The Shirley Village Archive

Pigot's Directory - 1842 (Document)

Brailsford, Langley, Shirley and Longford are all under the same heading. Just the text relevant to Shirley is reproduced here.

SHIRLEY, with the townships of Stydd and Yeaveley, form a parish in the same hundred as Brailsford, about three miles w. from that village. The habitations are so scattered over the parish, that the features of a village cannot be recognized. The church, dedicated to St. Michael, is a small building, with a tower of wood. Shirley park, in this parish, occupies upwards of two hundred acres, and at one time was a noted cover for foxes. The parish contained, in 1831, 602 inhabitants, and at the last census (1841) 682.
