Croft mead

Croft Mead was field involved in the sale of parts of Parsonage Farm in 1785.  It was listed as number 4 on a map that has not yet been found  in the Hampshire Archive which holds the origional list. It is grouped an estate that is beleived to have been based in the West end  tithing or Hollow Marsh.
 The 1794 map shows  Maltmead , which was in the same group which is near Chewdown.
 There were a number of Kingsmills fields in the area but no direct reference to Crofts Mead has yet ben found in the 18th century  churchwarden and poor law accouts. The Jenkins family may have been  the owners after 1785.
