Hambledon Village Booklet
The Village Booklet on Hambledon (VB025) explores this ancient village, situated in rolling Hampshire downland. Hambledon is a lovely village, which was once a thriving place with a market. It has royal connections, but is most famously known as the birthplace of England’s noble game of cricket.
Along with a useful map showing Hambledon and its contiguous settlements, are descriptions of the places of worship, past and present. The village had a surprising number of Baptist meeting houses.
Surnames of Hambledon 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. Particularly interesting are references to the Bat and Ball public house of cricketing fame.
