Knights Enham, Hampshire

Historical Description

Enham, Knight's, an ecclesiastical parish in Hants, 2 miles NNW of Andover station on the L. & S.W.R. Post town, and money order and telegraph office, Andover. Population, with Smannell, 591. Six Roman roads intersect the parish, and researches have brought to light here the walls of a Roman camp, the sites of more than one Roman villa of more than ordinary magnitude, coins of Antoninus and Constantine, and numerous fragments of tesserae, Samian ware, vases, pottery, and tiles. Here perhaps-and not at Farnham, East Sherborne, or Whitchurch, as antiquarians have variously supposed-was the Roman town Vindomum or Vindomis. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Winchester; value, £330. Patron, the Bishop of Winchester. The church is good.
