Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Drayton is a hamlet in England, in the county of Northamptonshire, in the parish and union of Daventry, hundred of Fawsley, of a mile on the low-lying western side of the town of Daventry. Not much is known about the origins of the hamlet but it is thought to be as old, or nearly as old, as Daventry.It is thought to have peasant origins, although a Roman pavement was discovered near to the hamlet in 1736. It was enclosed in 1753. There is a manor house within the hamlet and also a school built in 1859[citation needed]which once catered for the education of 45 children; it is now a private residence. Today the hamlet is all but a suburb of the town of Daventry although there are still many fine examples of Drayton's older dwellings around the village green, and in School Street.show more
