The first written mention of Crewkerne in Somerset dates from 899 when it was recorded in the will of Alfred the Great. In the Domesday Book (1086) it is stated that it was a royal manor, held by William the Conqueror. The market at Crewkerne was also recorded as being the second most important one in Somerset. Crewekerne grew in mediaeval times because of the textile industry which was located there. The name Crewkerne is thought to have derived from ‘cruc’ meaning ‘hill’ and ‘aern’ meaning ‘dwelling’ or ‘storehouse.’ In the 16th and 17th centuries textiles were being produced, made from wool and flax, with the sheep and plants raised in the vicinity.
Solicitors in Crewkerne
If you had bought flax from a farmer to protect you from sorcery and the evil eye in mediaeval times, you wouldn’t have been able to sue the farmer for damages if you became ill despite the flax. There were no solicitors inCrewkerne, or any personal injury compensation claims to be made. Of course, it would have been difficult to prove that an illness was caused by a curse being put upon you.
Nowadays, solicitors in Crewkerne, and others elsewhere in the country, can help you to file a personal injury compensation claim if you can, with their help, prove that the illness was caused because of another person’s negligence.
