It is supposed that Midhurst was a large town before the Norman Conquest. A splendid reception was given to King Edward VI. here in 1547. At the grammar school (founded 1672) Sir Charles Lyell, Eichard Cobden, and other famous men, were educated. Midhurst is in the centre of some fine scenery, but has little trade. It returned 2 members to Parliament from Edward IV. until 1832, and 1 member from 1832 until 1885.
