Rev. D. C. Delafosse,  MA

Vicar of All Saints Church in 1841. Andrew Behan has researched this man:

The Reverend Daniel Charles Delafosse was born on 3 June 1784 in Richmond, Surrey, the eldest son of the the Reverend Robert Mark Delafosse and Jane Theresa Delefosse née d'Abbadie. Having attended Eton he was admitted to King's College, Cambridge on 3 August 1803 and gained his Bachelor of Arts in 1808. He was ordained as a priest in 1809 and assisted his father at Petersham Church, Petersham, Richmond. He gained his Master of Arts in 1811. On 30 June 1812 he married Phoebe Ann Quilter at St Mary the Virgin Church, Monken Hadley,  Middlesex, and they went on to have five sons and two daughters.

He was a school master in Richmond before becoming the Vicar of Wandsworth in 1838. The 1841 census shows the the family living at Allfarthing Lane, Wandsworth. He stayed there until he became the Rector of Shere, at St James' Church, Shere, Surrey in 1844. He was also at one time Chaplain to the King of Hanover. According to probate records he died in Shere on 21 March 1859 and his estate totalled under £5,000.
