The Village Booklet on Monk Sherborne explores this ancient Hampshire village, situated close to the Berkshire border in the north of the county. It is a village having early connections to the important Hampshire families – the de Ports, Scures and Uvedales.

Along with a useful map showing Monk Sherborne and its contiguous settlements, are descriptions of the places of worship, past and present. The village was also caught up in the Swing Riots of the 1830s.

Surnames of Monk Sherborne 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. Particularly interesting are references to the village school.
