A revised description of antiquities and un-noticed places around Southampton.

A Walk Through Southampton (Revision)

An account of several curious remains of antiquity existing in the Town of Southampton, and which had either been totally unnoticed, or only very slightly mentioned, in the descriptions of that place hitherto published.

The author has ventured into the field of antiquarian research. But insists that: "not for a moment suppose that I aspire at the dignity of a historian of the place; a task for which neither my researches nor abilities have by any means qualified me".

Two major editions exist. This is the second edition with additional reseach. The author was aided by The Society of Antiquaries.

Afoot In England

Afoot in England recounts Hudson's wanderings from village to village across the south of England, from Surrey to Devon and Cornwall, and along the East Anglian coast. It speaks as powerfully today of the simple pleasures of the English countryside as when it was first published in 1909.

About half the matter contained in this volume has appeared in various papers and periodicals—The Saturday Review, The Speaker, The Morning Post. One article in the English Review. One in Longman's Magazine. The chapter entitled “ Rural Rides ” is based on a Saturday Review paper, which was afterwards included in a volume edited by Mr. Harold Hodge, entitled Recreations and Reflections. I have to thank the editors for permission to make use of this material.

An Old Woman's Outlook In A Hampshire Village

An Old Woman's Outlook is a book of essays, one for each month of the year, on different aspects of life in Otterbourne in 1890, including the neighbouring parish of Hursley.

Sample: May Day 1890. Once boys in Devonshire were licensed to drench with water from cows' horns whoever did not wear a spray of maythorn. I can just remember a lady coming in, indignant and dripping. In Hampshire, however, it has often dwindled to small children wandering about with an untidy bunch of king-cups and cuckoo flowers at the end of a stick, quavering shrilly out "April's gone, May's come, Come and see our garland"

Antiquarian And Topographical Sketches Of Hampshire

A description of antiquities around Southern Hampshire and The New Forest dated 1846.

From the Author: "The following Sketches, which were originally written for, and appeared in the Hampshire Advertiser Newspaper, have assumed their present form in compliance with the expressed wishes of many of their readers. Since their first publication, they have been carefully revised, and extended, so as to embrace a notice of every parish within the limits of the county."

Hampshire, or, according to legal documents, the County ot Southampton, is the eighth of the counties of England in respect to extent, and fifteenth as regard population.
