Old Hall Green
« on: Wednesday 21 November 18 13:04 GMT (UK) »
Greetings......

In Hertfordshire near Standon there is a small settlement(?) called Old Hall Green.
It has a school called St Edmunds as its main attraction.

I have a Richardson family, the parents of which were Reuben and Emma nee Eldred. Most of their children were baptized at the Roman Catholic Church/Chapel at Old Hall Green and one was also buried there. The PRs are on FindMyPast and are a little interesting to find.

Does anyone know where the church is/was (is it the one in St Edmunds College which did appear to exist in the 1850s)? And, does anyone have any idea where the graveyard is/was?

Any help much appreciated. Keith Jeffery

See the 1888 map at https://www.old-maps.co.uk/#/Map/537165/222073/12/100290 which shows the burial ground next to the RC Chapel.
Change the zoom if necessary
