The Village Booklet on Upton Grey explores this ancient village, which lies on the old Roman road from Chichester to Silchester. The Grey part of the name comes from the de Grey family and the village has connections with a famous Elizabethan poet and a Gertrude Jekyll garden.

The booklet contains the surnames of over fifty past residents, from school master and inn keeper to landowner; while sources as diverse as Hearth Taxes, Enclosure Awards and Trade Directories are explored. Whatever your connection with this fascinating village, this booklet will be a useful resource for all family historians. Along with a useful map showing Upton Grey and its contiguous settlements are descriptions of places of worship, past and present. Of particular interest are details on the non-conformist congregations.
