Chertsey, a town of England in the county of Surrey, is situated on the right bank of the Thames. It grew out of a monastery established in 666. Its leading industry is market gardening, and it trades in malt and flour. Near the town, on St. Anne's Hill, Fox used to live, and in a house now marked with an inscription Cowley spent the declining years of his life.
