This time last year, despite the pandemic, many<br />

of us were looking forward to meeting together<br />

with our families and friends over Christmas, as<br />

we do every year.<br />

Sadly, however things took a turn for the worse<br />

with the arrival of a new variant and the Prime<br />

Minister announced that on 19th <strong>December</strong><br />

2020 that we could no longer meet after all.<br />

Many of the headlines read something like<br />

“Boris cancels Christmas!”<br />

As we go to print, things are looking more<br />

hopeful for Christmas <strong>2021</strong>, but nothing can be<br />

guaranteed.<br />

Many traditions have grown up around<br />

Christmas in the UK, eating turkey and<br />

Christmas pudding, pulling crackers and<br />

wearing the silly paper hats inside, and of<br />

course Christmas Trees (I do hope that you will<br />

all come along to our Christmas Tree Festival<br />

at St Peter’s Church from 3rd to 5th <strong>December</strong><br />

– more details on page 10).<br />

For me personally, one of the most important<br />

elements of Christmas is spending time with<br />

family and friends, something that was denied<br />

to us last year. This is why we held a belated<br />

Christmas in June. We invited my dad and<br />

Carole’s parents to stay with us in keeping with<br />

our normal Christmas tradition, and we had the<br />

tree, turkey and all the fun of the festive period.<br />

We are so glad we did because my dad died<br />

suddenly a few weeks later.<br />

However, it is important to remember that when<br />

Jesus was born a little over 2,000 years ago in<br />

Bethlehem, there were no doting grandparents<br />

or friends to pop round. The only visitors were<br />

strangers, shepherds from the surrounding<br />

hills. No turkey, no crackers, no Christmas<br />

tree!<br />

For many people (perhaps especially children)<br />

the best thing about Christmas is receiving<br />

presents. I remember one Christmas, over<br />

20 years ago, when Carole and I bought a<br />

climbing frame for our two children, but we<br />

couldn’t put it up until they had gone to bed on<br />

Christmas Eve. It was bitterly cold, and was<br />

even snowing, so we decided to start building<br />

it indoors. Unfortunately, we built too much<br />

and then could not get it out of the patio doors<br />

without first deconstructing part of it. I think we<br />

finally finished erecting it outside at 3am.<br />

The reasons for many of the modern-day<br />

traditions associated with Christmas have<br />

been lost in time, but the idea of giving gifts<br />

goes back to something that happened not at<br />

Christmas itself but possibly several weeks,<br />

and probably months later.<br />

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem<br />

of Judea in the days of Herod the king,<br />

behold, wise men from the East came to<br />

Jerusalem, 2 saying, “Where is He who has<br />

been born King of the Jews? For we have<br />

seen His star in the East and have come<br />

to worship Him… 11 And when they had<br />

come into the house, they saw the young<br />

<strong>Iver</strong> <strong>Parish</strong> <strong>Magazine</strong> - <strong>December</strong> <strong>2021</strong> / <strong>January</strong> <strong>2022</strong>

Child with Mary His mother, and fell down<br />

and worshiped Him. And when they had<br />

opened their treasures, they presented<br />

gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and<br />

myrrh.” (Matt 2:1-2,11)<br />

In the church calendar, the arrival of the wise<br />

men is celebrated in early <strong>January</strong> in the<br />

season we call Epiphany.<br />

The gifts they brought might seem strange<br />

things to give to a small child or toddler. But<br />

Jesus was no ordinary child and so there was<br />

huge significance in the gifts:<br />

Gold was a royal gift and Jesus is the King of<br />

Kings.<br />

Frankincense (incense) was a priestly gift<br />

as Jesus is our High Priest who, rather than<br />

offering annual animal sacrifices, offered<br />

himself as a sacrifice for all people.<br />

Perhaps the strangest gift of all was myrrh<br />

because myrrh was used for embalming. It<br />

was a symbol of suffering and death, pointing<br />

forward to the crucifixion and resurrection of<br />

Jesus.<br />

There is also huge significance in the fact<br />

that the wise men came from the east, from a<br />

gentile (non-Jewish) nation. This represented<br />

that Jesus, as both fully man and fully God,<br />

was not here on earth to save just the Jewish<br />

nation but had come from heaven to save all<br />

mankind, Jews and gentiles alike.<br />

There is one last twist in the story that is often<br />

overlooked.<br />

“An angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph<br />

in a dream, saying, “Arise, take the young<br />

Child and His mother, flee to Egypt, and<br />

stay there until I bring you word; for Herod<br />

will seek the young Child to destroy Him.”<br />

14<br />

When he arose, he took the young Child<br />

and His mother by night and departed for<br />

Egypt, 15 and was there until the death of<br />

Herod (Matt 213b-15a)<br />

Not long after his birth, Jesus became a<br />

refugee, forced by persecution to flee the<br />

land of his birth. It is good to be reminded<br />

that Jesus was a refugee at a time when we<br />

are seeing increasing numbers fleeing from<br />

persecution in troubled areas of our modern<br />

world.<br />

Tragically last year, due to the pandemic, we<br />

had to cancel many of our Christmas services<br />

and only hold online ones instead.<br />

If you weren’t able to attend church in person<br />

last Christmas due to Covid, I do hope and<br />

pray that you will make it a priority this year<br />

(details on page 13).<br />

None of us know what Covid restrictions will be<br />

in place by the time we get to Christmas this<br />

year.<br />

We may not be able to celebrate exactly in<br />

the way that we would like, but Christmas can<br />

never be “cancelled”, because it is about a<br />

factual event that happened, the birth of the<br />

Saviour of the World. Christmas is ultimately a<br />

season of joy and hope, and perhaps we need<br />

it more than ever this year, if we can see past<br />

all the modern trappings and concentrate of the<br />

“real reason for the season”.<br />

God Bless.<br />

CHURCH<br />

Some of you may have noticed that we are in<br />

the process of replacing the majority of roses<br />

either side of the pathway leading from the<br />

Lychgate to the Church door at St Peter’s,<br />

this is due to trouble with the deer eating the<br />

roses. These will be replaced with a variety of<br />

rose called ‘Canary Bird’ which it is very much<br />

hoped will not be liked by the deer.<br />

It is with sadness that we have decided to<br />

close the club. It was founded in 2001 by Gill’s<br />

husband Dr Eddie Jones and Lady Barbara<br />

Smith a disabled lady from <strong>Iver</strong> Heath, in order<br />

to help the disabled get to church and improve<br />

their lives. During the last 18 months due to the<br />

Coronavirus Pandemic, we have been unable<br />

to meet and during this time we have lost our<br />

President Reg Gould and sadly many other<br />

members.<br />

Our grateful thanks to King’s Church for their<br />

hospitality over the years.<br />


Year 6 Residential Week!<br />

We were very lucky to get away with a group of<br />

our Year 6’s for a week long residential trip!<br />

The children (and the staff) got to take part<br />

in some incredible activities including zip<br />

wire, rock climbing, trapeze, archery, and<br />

orienteering; all very handy outdoor skills to<br />

know!<br />

Everyone had a fantastic time away and we are<br />

so proud how lovely and supportive everyone<br />

was to each other!<br />

We have £2794.14 in our bank account. Our<br />

Constitution states any money we have on<br />

closure of the club must be donated to the<br />

Through the Roof charity. This is a Christian<br />

charity that helps disabled people in various<br />

ways at home and abroad. Gill and Jackie<br />

wrote and signed the cheque for £2794.14, this<br />

will be sent to the charity.<br />

Our thanks to all members for their support in<br />

attending meetings over the years, and to the<br />

committee members for all their hard work and<br />

support in running the club.<br />

At its launch, the club started with prayers, so<br />

we end with a prayer.<br />

May the Lord Bless us and Keep us<br />

May His face shine on us and give us is Peace<br />

Amen<br />

It all started with Huntsmoor. My childhood<br />

had been spent around Huntsmoor Park<br />

(<strong>Iver</strong> Lane), which was also the view from my<br />

bedroom window. I wondered what the House<br />

had looked like, why it had been demolished<br />

and who had lived there? Some years later I<br />

began to look for the answers. A clue came<br />

from memorials in <strong>Iver</strong> church, which recorded<br />

families who had lived at Huntsmoor. My<br />

Mother managed to find for me a rare copy of<br />

W.H. Ward & K.S. Block’s 1933 excellent book<br />

“A History of the Manor and <strong>Parish</strong> of <strong>Iver</strong>”.<br />

Subsequently, in 1975, the <strong>Iver</strong> and District<br />

Countryside Association, amazingly arranged<br />

for Ward & Block to be re-printed in paperback,<br />

which enabled many <strong>Iver</strong> residents to have<br />

access to it again. Ward and Block is a good,<br />

reliable source but not all written accounts are<br />

as well researched. For historical research, it is<br />

important to use, if possible, original sources,<br />

to check and cross check information, and not<br />

to rely solely on secondary accounts by others.<br />

To access original records, it was necessary<br />

to visit the Record Office at Aylesbury, whose<br />

staff were incredibly helpful. They had a vast<br />

number of Huntsmoor records, which had been<br />

donated years earlier by Christopher Tower,<br />

whose family had owned Huntsmoor for over<br />

200 years. When I started it was only possible<br />

to make pencil notes in your own notebook<br />

during each booked session. Thus, there was a<br />

limit to how many documents could be studied<br />

each time, especially as the handwriting was<br />

sometimes difficult. My Mother usually assisted<br />

with note taking and we were grateful to Fred<br />

and Gwyn Archer for innumerable lifts to<br />

Aylesbury. The staff would photocopy some<br />

items, but some large and fragile documents<br />

could not be copied. They were willing to<br />

photograph some special items, but these<br />

were limited and photos expensive. My<br />

handwritten research continued for many years.<br />

Fortunately, now the situation at the Record<br />

Office has been transformed for researchers<br />

as cameras are allowed and one session<br />

photographing relevant documents can do the<br />

equivalent of months of work with handwritten<br />

copying! Over many years I have been<br />

immensely grateful for the help the Aylesbury<br />

Record Office, the National Archives, the Bucks<br />

Archaeological Society and St George’s Chapel<br />

Archives and Library have given me.<br />

While looking at records at Aylesbury, I<br />

discovered much about Bridgefoot, which the<br />

Tower family had also owned. The handwriting<br />

on some of the Bridgefoot deeds was very<br />

difficult to decipher but the Record Office staff<br />

were willing to undertake a commission to<br />

transcribe some of them for me. Having found<br />

some interesting details, I contacted Adrian<br />

Secker at Bridgefoot, and asked if I could<br />

talk over what I had found. Since then, both<br />

Adrian and Anthea Secker have contributed<br />

so much to my research. The discussions<br />

with Adrian were most enjoyable. He told me a<br />

great deal and lent me Bridgefoot documents,<br />

and Sir William Young’s 1770 estate map to<br />

take home to photograph, (now in the Record<br />

Office). He also lent me documents about the<br />

Clowes family of Delaford and Anthea allowed<br />

me to photograph the Delaford paintings at<br />

Bridgefoot. Over the years Anthea has found<br />

various useful documents and pictures and she<br />

continues to help me.<br />

Their greatest help however came in 1996,<br />

when Adrian forwarded a letter from me to<br />

Major Alastair Tower, the Tower family historian.<br />

My Huntsmoor research was transformed from<br />

the moment I met Alastair and other members<br />

of the Tower family. Until his death in 2007,<br />

Alastair and I shared a vast amount of material<br />

by letter, and we met occasionally in London<br />

or <strong>Iver</strong>. Through him I met Miss Pam Tower,<br />

the great-grand-daughter of Christopher and<br />

Lady Sophia Tower of Huntsmoor and visited<br />

her several times at her London flat to see and<br />

photograph Lady Sophia’s albums of paintings<br />

(now in the Record Office). She lent me Lady<br />

Sophia’s accounts of her daughters’ weddings<br />

at <strong>Iver</strong> and gave me some of her Huntsmoor<br />

and Delaford paintings. On another occasion<br />

she came to <strong>Iver</strong> to give me the two framed<br />

Huntsmoor paintings by Lady Sophia, which<br />

had been hanging in her flat.<br />

Picture 1 - Anthea & Alastair at Bridgefoot<br />

I also corresponded with Cdr Bill Tower, and he<br />

visited <strong>Iver</strong> several times. Via Alastair I met Mrs<br />

Sarah Micklem. Sarah was a wonderful and<br />

enthusiastic colleague and we exchanged so<br />

much material on both the Tower family and the<br />

Young family, to whom she was also related.<br />

She and I corresponded for innumerable years.<br />

She visited <strong>Iver</strong> and, in 2008, during a stay<br />

at her home Langleys in Essex, she showed<br />

my sister Sandra and myself round the site of<br />

the Tower estate of Weald Hall, former Tower<br />

properties there and the village of South Weald,<br />

whose church contained innumerable Tower<br />

memorials. Bill Tower who grew up there gave<br />

me his illustrated written account of Weald.<br />

Christopher Tower, (Pam’s brother) died in<br />

1998 and, as both Weald Hall and Huntsmoor<br />

had been demolished, the Trustees found a<br />

suitable home for the Tower family portrait<br />

collection at Ashridge, in Hertfordshire, which<br />

had close connections with the Tower family.<br />

In March 2009, Anthea, Sarah, Sandra, and I<br />

were invited to Ashridge to see the portraits.<br />

Later in May 2013 Sir William Young came to<br />

lunch with us in <strong>Iver</strong> and he and I walked down<br />

Swan Road to see his former family estate<br />

(Delaford Manor, now a different house).<br />

Alastair had also introduced me to (the late)<br />

Earl Bathurst and one October day of torrential<br />

rain and floods in 1998 Sandra drove me to<br />

Cirencester and we met him and his brother,<br />

the Hon George Bathurst, who answered<br />

innumerable questions about the Bathurst and<br />

Meeking families. Their help was invaluable<br />

and enabled me to produce in 1999 a booklet<br />

on Richings. Their mother had been Viola<br />

Meeking of Richings, who became Lady<br />

Apsley. Lord Bathurst gave me a most<br />

useful book about the history of the Apsley<br />

and Bathurst families and copies of some<br />

family photographs. In Richings Park, Mr &<br />

Mrs Roberts of Bathurst Walk were extremely<br />

knowledgeable about the Richings estate. Mr<br />

Roberts had been solicitor for the estate, and<br />

he gave me many original records. Mrs Bettie<br />

Roberts had grown up on Home Farm. She<br />

lent me her old family photos and, due to the<br />

kindness of the then owners, she took me<br />

round Home Farm and Richings before it was<br />

sold.<br />

About this time, I met David Sullivan, a<br />

descendant of The Hon John Sullivan<br />

of Richings. Between 2000-2009 we<br />

corresponded, he visited <strong>Iver</strong>, and gave me<br />

much useful information about the Sullivan<br />

family. Fortunately, about this time, the<br />

previously lost vault of John Sullivan and his<br />

family was rediscovered in the NE part of the<br />

old churchyard. All the above colleagues have<br />

helped me so much in my research.<br />

It seemed important that the information I had<br />

discovered should be recorded and shared<br />

with <strong>Iver</strong> residents so that people, places, and<br />

events in the past were not forgotten. In 1999<br />

I started to write and publish myself a series of<br />

<strong>Iver</strong> history booklets, sold in aid of <strong>Iver</strong> Church.<br />

Until the last in 2012, there were 15 booklets<br />

(now out of print). Fortunately, in these booklets<br />

I was able to include lists of references and<br />

my sources. (This has unfortunately not been<br />

feasible in my later magazine articles due to<br />

space).<br />

In 2003 “Around <strong>Iver</strong>” was published. This was<br />

Douglas Rust‘s idea. He suggested to Tempus<br />

that they approach me to do the book. At<br />

the outset I had not realised quite how much<br />

time and work this would involve! I put a note<br />

in the parish magazine asking for photos and<br />

then spent months going round seeing people,<br />

borrowing photos, and getting as much detailed<br />

18<br />

information as I could. Unfortunately, in those<br />

days I did not have a scanner, so every picture<br />

had to be photographed outside in daylight,<br />

with a film camera screwed onto on a stand,<br />

and the originals then returned to the owners.<br />

The films had to be developed and printed.<br />

Perhaps the most difficult task was contacting<br />

the original photographers of the pictures<br />

to ask permission to use their photos in my<br />

book. A vast number of generous people<br />

assisted by finding photos and their names<br />

are listed at the back of the book. I remember<br />

especially the kindness of Jo Elkins, who went<br />

through her amazing photo collection with<br />

me and lent me anything I wanted, and Paul<br />

Graham who lent me the whole of the <strong>Iver</strong> and<br />

District Countryside Association photographic<br />

collection. Canon David Welander posted to<br />

me his entire collection of <strong>Iver</strong> photos, and<br />

the Rev Andrew Bailey lent me two amazing<br />

scrapbooks made by his grandfather, the<br />

Rev Cobb, Vicar of <strong>Iver</strong> 1924-32 and a keen<br />

historian. Later in 2010 I also wrote a new<br />

Guidebook for St Peter’s Church.<br />

I have been very lucky indeed to receive so<br />

much help from many colleagues. (Far too<br />

many for all to be mentioned by name, sadly).<br />

During the past 20 years, my aim has been to<br />

record and pass on to others the information<br />

and evidence I have found. It is important<br />

that <strong>Iver</strong>’s history and people should not be<br />

forgotten so have tried to present it in an<br />

accessible form for those who do not have the<br />

time or the inclination to burrow among ancient<br />

documents, decipher handwriting, collect<br />

pictures, or record the memories of past and<br />

present <strong>Iver</strong> people. Since 2014, I have written<br />

74 separate local history articles for <strong>Iver</strong> <strong>Parish</strong><br />

<strong>Magazine</strong>, and these have also been “online”<br />

since <strong>December</strong> 2016. However, this will be<br />

my last regular monthly local history article.<br />

Unfortunately, with my advancing years, it is<br />

taking longer to prepare and check every article<br />

and the regular monthly deadline is now not<br />

easy. There is still so much of <strong>Iver</strong>’s history to<br />

recount, and it is marvellous that the monthly<br />

history article will be continued by others next<br />

year.<br />

<strong>2021</strong> saw the Richings Players celebrate 95<br />

years of amateur dramatics - a testament to the<br />

support of it’s members and audiences.<br />

We know that many have had a tough time<br />

over the past 20 months and we hope that<br />

reopening our doors in <strong>2022</strong> will bring you<br />

some joy. However, we also know that others<br />

will be nervous about attending in person<br />

and we will do everything we can to help and<br />

accommodate if we can.<br />

Epping Forest for our postponed production<br />

of Emlyn Williams’ “Night Must Fall,” directed<br />
