The Village Booklet on Houghton explores this ancient village located in the Test valley, near the market town of Stockbridge. The village has connections to the 1830s Swing Riots and to the Industrial Revolution, with the coming of the Andover Canal and Railway Company.

Along with a useful map showing Houghton 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 fifty Houghton 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 Houghton, this booklet provides rich pickings.
