"BYFLEET, a parish in the first division of the hundred of Godley, in the county of Surrey, 4 miles to the S. of Chertsey. Cobham is its post town. It is situated on a branch of the river Wey, near the London and South-Western railway, and is crossed by the Wey and Arun Junction canal. The manor of Byfleet was given to Piers Gaveston, the favourite of Edward II. The Black Prince is said to have erected the old mansion called Byfleet Park, which is now a farmhouse."
