Working the Land in Romsey

November 27, 2009 8:58 AM
Jean Brent and Pat Goodwin's new book is subtitled 'a history of farms and farming families in a Hampshire parish', and covers the rural history of the area from the founding of Romsey Abbey up until recent times. Like the Broadlands Estate, the Fleming Estate was one of the major landowners, and the book contains a wealth of information about local farms and families. For more information, and to order a copy, see the Lower Test Valley Archaeological Study Group's website at www.ltvas.org.uk.

John Valentine Willis Fleming (1925-2009)

November 5, 2009 11:00 PM
We are enormously sad to announce the death of John Valentine Willis Fleming, head of the family and a founding trustee of the Willis Fleming Historical Trust. John, known to friends and family as 'Roo', died on 3 December 2009 after a short illness. His funeral will take place on Friday 13 November 2009 at St Goran Church, Gorran.
