Two things might help. Both relate to my recent reply about Haggerston(e)
in some way. The first regards spelling. Great Chishill has sometimes been
spelt "Great Chishall", and Heydon has sometimes been spelt "Haydon".
Secondly both places, though they used to be in Essex, were transferred to
Cambridgeshire in 1895.
I did a "Google search", and came up with the following for Great Chishill:
http://hometown.aol.com/revsimm/myhomepage/photo.html is the home page for
the Parish Church, and gives a brief history of the church, and a link to
some photos, though when I tried it, I got an error message.
There are 2 photos of the church (one exterior, one inside) at:
Then Great Chishill has a site of its own at: http://www.greatchishill.org/
(There could well be more, but those three should give you a start).
I was not able to find anything similar for Heydon, but perhaps someone else
may know more.
Anyway, I hope this little helps.
