HEENE is a small parish, formerly extra parochial, adjoining Worthing, on the west, and is more generally called West Worthing: it has neither church nor chapel and is included in the East Preston poor law union, the inhabitants supporting their own poor: it is in the Western division of the county, rape of Bramber, and Worthing county court district. The ecclesiastical commissioners hold the great tithes’ rent-charge, and pay a stipend to the vicar of the adjoining parish of West Tarring, at which church the inhabitants have the right to attend. The property of this parish, with the exception of a few small holdings, has been purchased by the West Worthing Investment Company Limited, who have erected several mansions and first-class houses, a large and well appointed hotel, baths, assembly rooms, water works, &c., and are greatly improving the beach and neighbourhood. The area is 546 acres; population, 194.
