The Silchester village booklet (VB071) is another excellent and comprehensive exploration of a Hampshire village by researcher Roy Montgomery.

Silchester and the parish of St Mary the Virgin is situated on the Hampshire/Berkshire border north of Basingstoke. This booklet is packed with information and is an invaluable resource for anyone planning to visit or with ancestors from the area.

Read about the site of the Iron Age town of Calleva situated in the north of the parish and it’s subsequent rebuilding by the Romans,  evidence of which still remains.

The booklet features historical information about churches, schools and contiguous parishes, plus numerous local surnames including those of  landowners, priests, farmers, inn keepers and school masters.

References to Silchester documents, records and photographs held at the Hampshire Record Office are given throughout, together with useful website addresses for more information.
