The Village Booklet on Martyr Worthy explores this ancient Hampshire village near Winchester; one of five villages that make up the ‘Worthys’. The village had an economy that was kept afloat by trade generated from the railway.

Along with a useful map showing Martyr Worthy and its contiguous settlements, are descriptions of places of worship, past and present.

Surnames of over fifty Martyr Worthy past 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. Maybe your connection with Martyr Worthy is through the railway and the trade it generated. Whatever your interest, this booklet is full of useful and interesting reference material.
