History[edit] Until the 13th century, the village name was Isenhampstead. There were two villages here, called Isenhampstead Chenies
Chenies
and Isenhampstead Latimers, distinguished by the lords of the manors of those two places. In the 19th century the prefix was dropped and the two villages became known as Chenies
Chenies
and Latimer. Near this village there was once a royal hunting-box, where both King Edward I and King Edward II were known to have resided.[2] It was the owner of this lodge, Edward III's shield bearer, Thomas Cheyne, who first gave his name to the village[2] and his descendant, Sir John Cheyne, who built Chenies Manor House
Chenies Manor House
in around 1460 on the site.[3] Several paper mills were once established in Chenies, operated by the River Chess, which flowed here from further west in Buckinghamshire. St Michael's Church[edit] Main article: St Michael's, Chenies

St Michael's Church

The parish church of St Michael includes the Bedford Chapel (photo), burial place of many notable members of the Russell family.[4][5] The church is not of great architectural interest but stands in an attractive position in the Chess Valley near the manor house. "The fabulous series of monuments to the Russells, Dukes of Bedford, and their connexions ... [are according to] the late Mrs. Esdaile ...'one of the finest collections of tombs in England'."[6] The Churchyard Extension contains the war grave of an airman of World War II,[7] Aircraftsman 2nd Class John Lionel Crook who died on 12 December 1944.
