CHILDERLEY: Geographical and Historical information from the year 1835.

[Transcribed information from A Topographical Dictionary of England - Samuel Lewis - 1835]
(unless otherwise stated)

"CHILDERLEY, a parish in the hundred of CHESTERTON, county of CAMBRIDGE, 1 mile (W. N.W.) from Cambridge, containing 50 inhabitants. The living is a rectory, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Ely, rated in the king's books at £6. 9. 2., and in the patronage of N. Calvert, Esq. The church, which was dedicated to St. Mary, is in ruins. After the capture of Charles I. by Cornet Joyce, in 1647, he was conveyed hither by order of Cromwell, who visited him, in company with Fairfax, both of them disavowing all participation in the seizure of his person, and, at the king's request, caused him to be removed to Newmarket."
