Sheen  Surrey


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Sheen like this:

SHEEN (East), a hamlet and a chapelry in Mortlake parish, Surrey. The hamlet lies near Mortlake r. station, ½ a mile S of the Thames, and 2 E by N of Richmond; and has a post-office under London S W. The chapelrywas constituted in 1864; but the statistics have not been separately returned. ...

There are numerous fine villas, most of them with very beautiful grounds; and much of the area is shaded and beautified with magnificent oaks, chestnuts, and cedars. The living is annexed to Mortlake. The church was built in 1863, at a cost of £4, 600; and is in the decorated English style.
