Time Line of Henwood in British Isles and World Population

Over 2,000 years ago in about 100 BCE, explorers and traders
from the Mediterraniean world wrote down the names of the people of these
NW islands as PRITANI - BRITANNI was how Romans pronounced it.
People in what is now the county of Hampshire were of the tribe of
ATREBATES.  This was in the late iron age.   They had connections with what is now, northern France.

Originally, the Atrebates were a powerful tribe from northern Gaul.
We think of Gaul as France, but  to the Romans, it
 included present France, Belgium, Luxemburg and parts of the Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany on the west bank of the Rhine, and the Po Valley, in present Italy.
Neanderthal Male
Neanderthals went extinct about 40,000 years ago.
  Neanderthals and modern humans share 99.7% of their DNA  and are hence closely related.  Once, Great Britain was connected to Europe.  
In Swanscombe, England (400,000 years ago): Between 1933 and 1955, amateur archaeologists discovered three separate pieces of the same female skull at a gravel quarry in Swanscombe. The skull is thought to be that of an early Neanderthal (although the skull’s age and species status have been questioned.) Less than an hour east of London, the Swanscombe site is now a historical park.  SW England held the oldest modern man, about 41,000
years old today.  It was in Kent's Cavern.

500 BCE  Hill forts held a few houses and were cult centers or places for seasonal gatherings.
              Some hill forts were packed wit roundhouses as in Hampshire (Danebury) and had a population of about 200.  They had underground grain silos or storage pits, dug into the ground, capped with clay and capable of holding one or 2 tons of grain apiece.  Thus they could feed themselves.

The other popularly held belief is that 'Maedstede' was Saxon for 'the place in the clearing'.

David Hume (1752) and Robert Wallace (1761) asked, "Was the growth of industry, urbanization and restructuring of social classes a good thing or not?  Was modernization a blessing or a curse?

Thomas Robert Malthus of Cambridge (1798) replied, "I think I may fairly make two postulata.
1. First, that food is  necessary to the existence of man.
2. Secondly, that the passion between the sexes is necessary, and will remain nearly in its present state.
I say, that the power of population is indefinitely greater than the power in the earth to produce subsistence for man.
Population, when unchecked, increases in geometric ratio.
Subsistence increases only in an arithmetical ratio.

He thought that an increase in food supply caused more people and more poverty.  He believed in abstinence but didn't want contraception.  He married at 39.
Poverty was caused by their own fault for not trying harder and welfare only kept the misery they suffered going.  He thought more suffering would encourage people to practice self discipline.

Obviously his theory was not accepted by anyone.  What really happened?
 As the death rate dropped in Britain which was developing economically, the fertility rate declined within a generation or two.  In modern societies, people had fewer children.

Over 2,000 years ago, prosperous Romans adopted the same small family family structure.  Pliny in 23-79 CE then wrote:  "In our time people hold that an only son is already a heavy burden and that it is advantageous not to be overburdened with posterity.  There was Pliny the Elder and Pliny the Younger.  He must have been a handful.

I have been able to go back 14 generations to John Henwood b: 1538 d: 1591 at age 53 and wife Anne who had 7 children in Medstead, Hampshire, England.  Manor of Medstead was bought by Sir Richard Lyster in 1530.

 Today, Medstead is a village and civil parish in the East Hampshire district of Hampshire, England. It is 4.3 miles (6.9 km) west-southwest of Alton. The village has a population of around 2,000 and adjoins the village of Four Marks. At over 700 feet above sea level, they are some of the highest villages in Hampshire. The village also has its own restored railway station on the Watercress Line, services from which connect with the nearest national rail station 4.3 miles (6.9 km) to the northeast, at Alton.

 The origins of the ecclesiastical parish of Medstead can be traced back to the Saxon period and the granting of the Liberty of Alresford which covered the present-day ecclesiastical parishes of New Alresford, Old Alresford and Medstead. The Domesday Book of 1086 confirms the establishment of the Liberty's Mother Church, St. Mary the Virgin, Old Alresford. (Domesday Book is a manuscript record of the "Great Survey" of much of England and parts of Wales completed in 1086 by order of King William the Conqueror. Wikipedia)  In the Liberty of Alresford, St. Mary the Virgin had been established as the Mother Church at Old Alresford with chapelries of St. John the Baptist at New Alresford and St. Andrew at Medstead

Our male Henwood has been DNA tested and carried R1 b1a2 or now called R-M269.  It is the
Western Atlantic Model Haplotype.  A Jewish man was tested and also carries R-M269. 

 "Haplogroup R-M269, also known as R1b1a1a2, is a sub-clade of human Y-chromosome haplogroup R1b. It is of particular interest for the genetic history of Western Europe. It is defined by the presence of SNP marker M269. R-M269 has been the subject of intensive research; it was previously also known as R1b1a2 (2003 to 2005), R1b1c (2005 to 2008), and R1b1b2 (2008 to 2011)[3]
R-M269 is the most common European haplogroup, greatly increasing in frequency on an east to west gradient (its prevalence in Poland estimated at 22.7%, compared to Wales at 92.3%). It is carried by approximately 110 million European men (2010 estimate).[4] The age of the mutation M269 is estimated at roughly 4,000 to 10,000 years ago, making it likely that the haplogroup originates in the European Neolithic, and its sub-clades can be used to trace the migrations associated with the Neolithic expansion."
"The larger Haplogroup R1b (Y-DNA) is dominant in Western Europe, not only Britain and Ireland. While it was once seen as a lineage connecting the British Isles to Iberia (where it is also common), opinions concerning its origins have changed. It is now known R1b and R1a entered Europe with Indo-European migrants likely originating around the Black Sea."
The Mt haplotype (47% of Europe, 44.7% England, 44.1% in Ireland and Scotland; 59.8% in Wales) handed down from mother to son and daughter most common in Europe is ", originating in France.  
  • Haplogroup H (mtDNA) Helena (Sykes), Helina (Oppenheimer). Almost half of Europe carries this.  
  • Sykes found that the maternal clan (haplogroup) pattern was similar throughout England but with a definite trend from east and north to the south and west. The minor clans are mainly found in the east of England. Sykes found Haplogroup H to be dominant in Ireland and Wales. A few differences were found between North, Mid and South Wales. There was a closer link between North and Mid Wales than either had with the South.
    Sykes found that 10% of the Irish population were in Haplogroup U5 called Ursula. He calculated a date of 7,300 BC for the entry of this lineage into Ireland. Similar dates were proposed for the other mitochondrial haplogroups, implying that mitochondrial lines in Ireland are far older there than the arrival of Iron Age Celts. Little difference was found between the maternal clans in the four provinces.
