The Village Booklet on Brown and Chilton Candover explores these two settlements that were at one time known as just the ‘Candovers’. They are situated close to the market town of Alresford.


The Candovers have a fascinating connection with King Alfred and important Hampshire family names such as the Paulets. This booklet contains some excellent detail on the manors and useful references to sources in the Hampshire Archive.

Along with a useful map showing the Candovers and their contiguous settlements, are descriptions of the places of worship, past and present.

With over a hundred surnames of Candover inhabitants referenced, this booklet is a gem of information. Sources as diverse as Hearth Taxes, Enclosure Awards and Trade Directories are explored. If you have any connections with the Candovers, this booklet will prove to be an essential handy guide.
