Sturbridge Mead, also known as Stockbridge, was a small farm on the Stoneham Estate comprising an artificial watermeadow constructed on a tributary of the River Itchen[1]. It was listed as a freehold reversion when the manor of North Stoneham was sold to Sir Thomas Fleming in 1599.[2]

Sturbridge Mead was acquired by the Fleming Trustees in 1883 from Lieutenant Colonel William Mosse. As in 1599, it comprised 13 acres of watermeadow. Bundle 3 contains a full set of deeds for this property, dating back to 1648.[3]
