Charlton & Newbottle, The History of Two Villages

£14.99

Product description

Published in 2000 by the Charlton and Newbottle History Society this is a large paperback book which is in very good condition, the top corners are very lightly bumped and there is a little discolouration to the cover. Internally the book is clean, bright and tightly bound. A large and heavy books. It is illustrated with colour plus black and white photographs. The villages are in Northamptonshire. In the preface it states: "The villages are not remarkable for great events happening there. A fight between two men in the village street in 1256. a landowner who wouldn't cut his hedges and a miller who was letting the water mill fall into disrepair in 1550s are among the recorded highlights: not exactly the stuff of most history books. But it is just as remarkable that we know about such details from 400 years ago, as what Queen Elizabeth I was doing at the same time. Moreover, not every parish has an Iron Age fort, a Roman villa and a recent Lord Chancellor in its midst.
Charlton and Newbottle fit well together, Charlton, a village without church or manor, complements Newbottle, a church and manor without a village. Now that they have been joined in the same civil and ecclesiastical parishes, it is natural that they should go together. But this union is very recent. Before 1896, Charlton was split beteen the ecclesiastical parishes of Newbottle and Kings Sutton and there were no civil parishes. No apparent logic decided which house was in which parish, and they were so mixed up that the enumerator of the 1871 census, who was supposed to record them separately, pronounced himself defeated and lumped the houses all together."
