The 1642 Living History Village

It is the year of our Lord 1642, and I am Mistress Eve situated in the hamlet of Rowner in the grounds of Grange Farm, farmed by Master Stares.

Just down the road is the church of St Mary the Virgin, the Rector is James Searle.

Times are hard for me, I make baskets in the spring of the year, from willow taken from the wetlands locally. In the summer of the year I make buttons to sell to traders who pass through and in the autumn of the year I sell myself at the hiring fayre in Titchfield.

Last year I was lucky enough to be bought by the Master of Titchfield Grammar School to serve in his house during the winter months, returning to Rowner in the spring the following year.

King Charles is on the throne and unrest is apparent, with Lord Goring as Governor of Portsmouth. But this is all idle gossip. To learn more about our village please come and visit us at Little Woodham.
