North East Hampshire Historical
Projects are created and organised by members with a particular interest. Any member may propose a project and may work on it by themselves or invite other members to join in. Everyone in a project team must be a member of NEHHAS or an associated Society in order to be properly insured. Projects requiring NEHHAS resources and/or funding must be approved by the committee beforehand.
The following projects are currently in progress
Farnborough Land History
A project to study the history of land use, starting with the original Manor of Farnborough and now including the Land Tax Assessments (1800-1832). See our Archive webpages for example maps.
Other sources being studied are the Poor Rates for Farnborough and Cove. NEHHAS already holds databases of the Tithe and Inclosure Land for Cove, Farnborough and Hawley. Some of this work is being carried out in conjunction with the Yateley Society.
Farnborough Pottery Industry
Collating information on the pottery industry of Cove and Farnborough, which supplied London in past centuries.
A project to study the history of the union workhouse in Farnborough and something of the lives of the occupants. A number of talks were given to various local groups who expressed interest.
Crondall Hundred Boundary from AD 976 Charter
Solving a Saxon Charter involves finding the places mentioned in it on the modern ground. The Crondall Charter has over 45 places named. We have published the solution in NEHHAS Journal Vol 2, and intend to hold a conference on our findings.
