By the kindness of Mr. T. M. Eyston, J.P., a number of Catholics from London were privileged last Sunday, to pay a visit to the historic residence, Hendred House, at East Hendred and the ancient chapel of St. Amand, adjoining, which has been the private chapel of the Eyston family since the reign of Henry the Sixth. Organised and led by Mr. J. V. A. Kelly, the party first paid a devotional visit to the chapel and were then admitted to the house, where they saw the More pictures and other treasures. Afterwards a visit was paid to the handsome Catholic parish church, St. Mary's, and also to the pre-Reformation church of the village.

The canonisation of Thomas More and John Fisher has invested East Hendrcd with an even higher interest than it already had in Catholic annals. By the marriage of a son of St. Thomas with Anne Crisaker, the Eystons are directly descended from the More family. In Hendrcd House are preserved St. Thomas More's drinking-cup and St. John of Rochester's walking-staffs.
