Local History and Kempshott
Kempshott History Group was created in 2011 by a group of friends who lived in Kempshott, were either amateur local historians, genealogists , archaeologists or simply enjoyed exploring local subjects on the internet.
As long term residents in the area we were conscious that there was a lot of history to be unearthed in our small patch of North Hampshire, from stone age evidence, roman imprints on the landscape to mediaeval records – so many sources are available.
If you enjoy researching and exploring on the internet , in the county record office in Winchester or other national and local sources, we would be delighted if you would like to join the working team. We also welcome those with the essential skills of editing and publishing.
