The Village Booklet on Bighton explores this ancient village, which sits quietly, close to the market town of Alresford. It managed to avoid any of the Civil War disturbances that occurred in the villages around.

Along with a useful map showing Bighton and its contiguous settlements are descriptions of places of worship, past and present. Of particular interest are details on the non-conformist congregations.

The booklet contains the surnames of over fifty past residents, from school master and inn keeper to landowner; while sources as diverse as Hearth Taxes, Enclosure Awards and Trade Directories are explored. Whatever your connection with this fascinating village, this booklet will be a useful resource for all family historians.
