Farringdon Village Booklet
The Village Booklet on Farringdon explores this ancient Hampshire village near the market town of Alton. It has some intriguing history, such as links with the naturalist Gilbert White, Massey’s Folly that dominates the village, some strange headstones, the Meon railway and much more.
Along with a useful map showing Farringdon and its contiguous settlements, are descriptions of the places of worship, past and present. Of particular interest are details on the non-conformist congregations.
This booklet contains the surnames of over sixty Farringdon past inhabitants, from school master and inn keeper to landowner, and sources as diverse as Hearth Taxes, Enclosure Awards and Trade Directories are explored. Whatever your connection with Farringdon, this booklet provides rich pickings.
