The Village Booklet on Hursley explores this ancient Hampshire village situated between Winchester and Romsey. The booklet describes a village overflowing with history, with relics of a castle and connections with the bitter battle between Stephen and Matilda. It also has links to the Mayflower, Cromwell, and the Spitfire!

Along with a useful map showing Hursley 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.

With surnames of about a hundred Hursley past inhabitants sprinkled throughout, from school master and  inn keeper to landowner; together with sources as diverse as Hearth Taxes, Enclosure Awards and Trade Directories, this booklet is well worth the investment. Whatever your connection with Hursley, this village booklet will be a very useful guide.
