TRING

WITH THE HAMLETS OF LONG MARSTON AND WILSTONE, AND THE VILLAGES OF ALDBURY AND WIGGINTON, AND NEIGHBOURHOODS.
 

TRING is a market town and parish, in the hundred of Dacorum; 31 miles from London, five from Berkhampstead, and seven from Aylesbury, in Buckinghamshire. It is situated at the most westerly part of the county, and within a mile of the Grand Junction Canal. The origin of this town is of considerable antiquity; at the division of the county by Alfred, it was considered of sufficient importance to give name to the hundred in which it was situated, being then called Treung. The town consists of two principal streets, both containing many good houses, some of which are of modern erection. The manufactures of Tring comprise canvass, straw plat, silk, parchment and vellum, and wool mats; the two first-named branches have been long established here, and that of silk employs from two to three hundred hands. Wm. Kay, Esq., is lord of the manor, and holds courts leet and baron annually, when two constables are appointed. Within the parish are four large reservoirs, (covering together an extent of nearly two hundred acres), for supplying the Grand Junction canal.

The buildings for divine worship within the parish are the church, a chapel of ease in the hamlet of Long Marston, and meeting-houses

for Baptists and independents. The church, which is dedicated to St. Peter and St. Paul, and situated about the centre of the town, is a handsome embattled structure, with a tower at its western end; the living is a perpetual curacy, in the patronage of Christ college, Oxford; the present incumbent is the Rev. Charles Lacy. The principal charity is a public school, conducted upon the Lancasterian system, established in 1829 by Mr. John Hull. Contiguous to the town is ‘Tring Park' the mansion was built by Charles II. for his favourite mistress, familiarly called Nell Gwyn; it has since been modernized — is now the property of the present lord of the manor, and occupied by Mrs. Sarah Smith and family. Robert Hill, a remarkable self-taught linguist, was born in Tring in 1699; he died in 1777. The market, which is held on Friday, besides the usual commodities of consumption, is a large one for straw plat; the fairs are on Easter-Monday and old Michaelmas-day, for cattle and pleasure. The population of the parish of Tring, including the hamlets of LONG MARSTON and WILSTONE, by the census for 1831, was 3,488; being an increase, since the year 1801, of 1,867 inhabitants. ALDBURY and WIGGINTON are villages and parishes in the same hundred as Tring; the former two miles and a half, and the latter one mile from that town. By the last parliamentary returns, Aldbury contained 457 inhabitants, and Wigginton 536.
