EXTRA Meeting – Tuesday 25th June – The early history of the manor of Wickham – Geoff Phillpots
This is the first of two talks by Geoff charting the development of Wickham manor and covering the earliest days of the manor from its Saxon origins to the partition and sale of the manor at the end of the 17th and beginning of the 18th century. With much new material, the talk shows how much the Wickham we live in today was shaped by key events and decisions made hundreds of years ago. The talk reflects on what life was like for the people of Wickham and how four families played a key role in shaping our landscape and community.
