The Village Booklet on Crondall explores this ancient village positioned in north east Hampshire. This booklet describes a village overflowing with history; from the relics of it’s Norman castle, the supposed HQ of the knight outlaw Adam de Gurdon, to its role in the civil war, and connections to the Paulet family – one of the most important families in England.

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

Surnames of Crondall inhabitants are sprinkled throughout, from school master and  inn keeper to landowner; and sources as diverse as Hearth Taxes, Enclosure Awards and Trade Directories are explored. Were your ancestors occupied in the weaving industry or involved in hot air ballooning? This booklet on the history and people of Crondall is a fascinating read.
