The Village Booklet on Liss (VB054) explores this ancient Hampshire village, north of Petersfield.

The village was an important place from the time of King Alfred and has an intriguing past. The coming of the railway to Liss saw the village expand, as did its proximity to the military establishments at nearby Bordon. The booklet has excellent references to material held at the Hampshire Archives.

Along with a useful map showing Liss 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 a hundred Liss 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 Liss, this booklet will provide rich pickings.
