Woods Acre

The sale of some of the land of Parsonage Farm  in 1785 refers to a field called Woods Acres. The only description given is that it was number 8 on a map that has not yet been found in the Hampshire Archive which holds the original list. It is grouped with the main farm house and yard, which are known to have been in th Town , and fields called  Woods Leg Ground  and Paddock Slade which are numbers 7 and 9 respectively.  Number 10 was described as ‘5 Acres adjoining’ which could match the description of several fields. The numbers 5 and 6 are not described and 3 and 4 are grouped with an  estate with fields which are believed to have been in West end  and Hollow Marsh. The fields are not named on the  1794 map.
