From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Chalfont St Giles is a village and civil parish in southeast Buckinghamshire, England. It is in a group of villages called The Chalfonts, which also includes Chalfont St Peter and Little Chalfont.

“Chalfont” means chalk spring, in reference to the water-carrying capacities of the local terrain. The cockney rhyming slang term “chalfonts”, meaning haemorrhoids (piles), is derived from the name of the village.

In the Domesday Book in 1086, Chalfont St Giles and Chalfont St Peter were listed as separate Manors with different owners, called ‘Celfunte’. They were separate holdings before the Norman Conquest.
