Old and new London: A Narrative of Its History, Its People, and Its Places, Vol. V. – Edward Walford, 1887:

“About the year 1796,” writes Faulkner, in his “History of Chelsea,” “I was present at a stag-hunt in Chelsea. The animal swam across the river from Battersea, and made for Lord Cremorne’s grounds. Upon being driven from thence, he ran along the water-side as far as the church, and turning up Church Lane, at last took refuge in Mrs. Hutchins’s barn, where he was taken alive.”
