Chenies

4
Chenies is a village in the very eastern part of south Buckinghamshire, England, on the border with Hertfordshire. It is situated to the east of Chesham and the Chalfonts. Chenies is also a civil parish within Chiltern district.HistoryUntil the 13th century, the village name was Isenhampstead. There were two villages here, called Isenhampstead Chenies and Isenhampstead Latimers, distinguished by the lords of the manors of those two places. In the 19th century the prefix was dropped and the two villages became known as Chenies and Latimer.Near this village there was once a royal hunting-box, where both King Edward I and King Edward II were known to have resided. It was the owner of this lodge, Edward III's shield bearer, Thomas Cheyne, who first gave his name to the village and his descendant, Sir John Cheyne, who built Chenies Manor House in around 1460 on the site.Several paper mills were once established in Chenies, operated by the River Chess, which flowed here from further west in Buckinghamshire.St Michael's ChurchThe parish church of St Michael includes the Bedford Chapel (photo), burial place of many notable members of the Russell family. The church is not of great architectural interest but stands in an attractive position in the Chess Valley near the manor house. "The fabulous series of monuments to the Russells, Dukes of Bedford, and their connexions... the late Mrs. Esdaile...'one of the finest collections of tombs in England'." Chenies is in Buckinghamshire.
