The Village Booklet on Upham explores this ancient Hampshire village, lying within ten miles of the cathedral city of Winchester. The booklet explores the history and people of Upham, including their historical brushes with the Civil War and the Swing riots of the 1830s.

Along with a useful map showing Upham and its contiguous settlements, are descriptions of places of worship, past and present. Of particular interest is the history of the village pub, ‘The Brushmaker’s Arms’.

Surnames of Upham past inhabitants are sprinkled throughout, from school master and inn keeper to landowner; while sources as diverse as Hearth Taxes, Enclosure Awards and Trade Directories are explored. Were your ancestors occupied in the brush making industry? This booklet is a fascinating read for all with connections to Upham.
