Ok well I doubt that it's native to England but why don't we go over your set up. Chameleon looks really nice you may just end up keeping him, could you fill out the form in my signature to help us get a feel for what your set up is while I can try and look up what you have?

You are definitely right, here is what I found Trioceros hoehnelli, commonly known as von Höhnel's chameleon, the helmeted chameleon, and the high-casqued chameleon, is a species of chameleon, a lizard in the family Chamaeleonidae. The species is endemic to eastern Africa

He is a male you can tell because he has something called a hemipenal bulge at the base of his tail

It looked like a Hoe but I've never kept one so I don't know... I would tag in some of the older posters because they were quite popular for some time. There was even like a little "club" folks had that they added in their signature. @jannb and I know it's a long shot but @Chris Anderson has kept them for quite some time.

Read up now that you know what he is. Youre in the right place for information. Please keep us updated. Also get ready to spend some money on good lights,mister and plants. Good luck.

You have a mature male T.hoehnelii. He's the type that is currently being exported from Kenya to both the US and Europe for the last year. Van Overbeke Jurgen breeds hoehnelii in Belgium. There's also a hoehnelii group on facebook based in the UK. This in addition to all the care sheets you've already found.
These are a wonderful little species and easy to care for so long as you can provide proper conditions. The most important being: low night temperatures (45-60F.) with high humidity, and drier daytime temps from 65-78F.
