Kings Somborne Village Booklet
The Village Booklet on Kings Somborne explores this ancient village, which lies in the beautiful Test Valley, close to the old Roman road that ran between Winchester and Old Sarum.
Along with a useful map showing Kings Somborne and its contiguous settlements are descriptions of places of worship, past and present. Of particular interest are details on the non-conformist congregations.
The booklet contains the surnames of over fifty past residents, from school master and inn keeper to landowner; while sources as diverse as Hearth Taxes, Enclosure Awards and Trade Directories are explored. The village has connections with the C19th canal and railway builders. Whatever your connection with this fascinating village, this booklet will provide you with rich source material to research your family history.
