LITTLE MARLOW is a widely scattered parish and village, 1 1/2 miles N.E. from Great Marlow, in the hundred of Desborough, union of Wycombe. Here was a Benedictine Nunnery in honour of the Blessed Virgin, for four or five nuns, whose revenues at the time of the Dissolution were valued at £37 6s. 11d. The church, dedicated to St. John, is a neat edifice, with tower and three bells. The living is a vicarage, in the patronage of Samuel Burch, Esq.; the Rev. James Baines, M.A., incumbent. A handsome National School has lately been erected, at a cost of £800. There are charities of about £30 annual value. Westhorpe House, the residence of George Jackson, Esq., and the Manor House, the seat of J. P. Ellams, Esq., lord of the manor, are mansions of great beauty. The parish comprises an area of 3346 acres, chiefly chalk and gravel, with a population in 1861 of 790. The neighbourhood is celebrated for its beech-woods. An important business in the manufacture of satin-stich and embroidery, already affording employment for 300 persons, has been lately established at Well End, in this parish, by Messrs. George Cobden and Co.
