Information on Basingstoke Hampshire, while staying in the B&B:-
Basingstoke began as a Saxon village. By the time of the Domesday Book (1086), quite a large village having a population of about 200. There were 3 watermills, which ground grain to flour, for a weekly market.
In the Middle Ages Basingstoke grew into a small town. In the 13th century population was around 650 people with 4 streets, the Market Square. Church Road, St Michael of the Mount Church and Mote Street. The Mote Hall was a hall by the marketplace where the townsmen met together. North was the main Winchester to London road. In 1257 the village was given a charter (a document granting the townspeople certain rights).
The people of Medieval Basingstoke grew most of their own food. There was a common where all the townspeople had a right to graze cattle, pigs, and sheep. (men were employed to look after the livestock. There was a swineherd for the pigs, a shepherd for the sheep, and a cowherd).
Prosporing on the wool trade. Sheep were raised locally and wool was woven in Basingstoke, then Wooden hammers worked by watermills pounded the wool. There were also tanners in Basingstoke and tailors as well as craftsmen such as blacksmiths, bakers, brewers, and coopers.
In 1392 Basingstoke was devastated by fire. A writer of the time said the fire caused 'serious injury and utter loss'. The king granted a new charter (a document giving the townspeople certain rights). The charter made the 'good men' of Basingstoke into a corporation and gave them the right to use a common seal making then entirely independent.
King John (1199-1216) quarreled with the Pope. As a result, the Pope placed England under an interdict, which meant the dead could not be buried in consecrated land. During the years 1208-1215, the dead in Basingstoke were buried in a cemetery north of the town called the liten. When the interdict was lifted a chapel was built by it called the Chapel of the Holy Ghost. There was also a 'hospital' in Basingstoke. (In those days the church ran the only hospitals). By the early 13th century the Hospital of St John the Baptist had been founded where the monks looked after the sick and infirm, as best they could. They also provided hospitality for poor travelers.
