1785 Parsonage Farm

Hampshire archive (19M61/4175) is a list of the fields that were owned by the Kingsmills  and were sold to Mr (Hippisley) Cox in 1785. At least some of the fields may have been bought back at a later date based on the 1794 map. Most of the fields mentioned were part of ‘Parsonage Farm’ which is believed to have been based on the site of what is now Tudor CottageOld Vicarage. The Rev Annsely  is mentioned but he probably lived in what was shown as ‘The vicarage’ in the 1794 map but would become  the Old Rectory. The tenant for most of the fields was George Roberts but Robert Anstee also held a significant amount of land. It is not clear who the Mr Harte was but he was probably married to the Sarah Hart shown in the 1794 map. The map that the numbers refer to has not yet been identified
