"CHERTSEY, a parish and market town in the second division of the hundred of Godley, in the county of Surrey, 21¾ miles by the South-Western railway from London. It is situated on the banks of the Thames, and was a place of considerable importance in the early Saxon times, being a seat of the South Saxon kings. It is called by Bede Ceortesei, or Ceroti insula, which would seem to imply that it was at this period surrounded by the Thames, and must since have undergone a considerable geological change, as at present it has no appearance of having been an island."
