The Village Booklet on Owslebury explores this ancient Hampshire village, situated close to Winchester. This booklet describes a village overflowing with history. It has close historical connections with both the English Civil War and the Swing Riots of the 1830s.

Along with a useful map, showing Owslebury and its contiguous settlements, are descriptions of places of worship, past and present. Of particular interest are details on the non conformist congregations.

Surnames of Owslebury inhabitants are sprinkled throughout, from school master and inn keeper to landowner; as sources as diverse as Hearth Taxes, Enclosure Awards and Trade Directories are explored. Were your ancestors occupied in one of the pubs that plied their wares in the village, or do you have a connection with the Spitfire testing airfield at Marwell Hall? Whatever your connection, this booklet on the history and people of Owslebury is a fascinating read.
