Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Crondall is a village and large civil parish in the north east of Hampshire, England and is all that remains of the old Hundred of Crondall referred to in the Domesday Book of 1086. Various earlier spellings have in common the use of a "u" instead of the "o" and the village is still properly pronounced "Crundel" although some recent incomers prefer to pronounce the "o." The map of Hampshire in the 1722 edition of William Camden's Britannia or Geographical Description of Britain and Ireland shows symbols for habitation in Farnborough, Cove, Ewshot, Aldershot and Crookham in the Crundhal hundred. An Old English crundel was a chalk-pit or quarry, and the word has survived in the name of Crondall. The remains of one quarry can still be seen as a large depression on the golf course.show more
