Winchfield, A Small Village in Hampshire, England

Winchfield is a small village in the Hart District of Hampshire in the South-East of England. It is situated 1 mile south-west of Hartley Wintney, 8 miles east of Basingstoke, 2 miles north-east of Odiham and 38 miles west of London. It is well connected to London Waterloo and Basingstoke by rail.

I've been so confused by the place names of these Henwood's birth places. So often there is more than a city and a county. Everything seems to be so close to each other. It must all run together.

This is an important village because this is where (supposedly) my children's grandfather Henwood was born. Many of his people came from Hampshire County.
