Notes about this historic site

1 The possible extent of the Medieval settlement, based on the first edition 6″ map. 57 NE 1885
2 ‘The hamlet of Ascott was a member of Whichford manor in 1279, at which time John de Mohan had 18 bond tenants there.’
3 The hamlet is not listed in the Domesday survey.
4 The hamlet is situated very close to Whichford to the west, and at a road intersection. There is no church. The 1885 map shows numerous small fields and footpaths, but no clear boundary hedge. The parish has not been covered by ridge and furrow plotting which might clarify the limit of settlement; the mapdata shows some survival to the south.
