Abstract:
SU 231240; 226222; 262233. Difficulties may be encountered when trying to fix dates of desertion in areas of dispersed settlement. Whelpley, a five-acre site, yields no surface material later than 14th cent; but none of the many available documents explains the reasons for or date of desertion. Its chapel is described and planned. More, another five-acre site, is also well-documented but no date for its abandoment can be assigned between 14th-17th cents. Cowsfield Green, a shrunken village of six cottages and a manor farm, shows former house-sites around its green; no figures of population are recorded between 1086 and mid-17th cent. These examples are typical of many areas of dispersed settlement where the available documents give no assistance with population figures. Because such settlements usually declined gradually, only total excavation could reveal the date of their desertion; and modern farmyards and buildings have often destroved the evidence already.
