Romsey is an historic market town in Hampshire, whose name is believed to have derived from Rūm’s Eg in Old English, with Eg meaning ‘marsh.’ It is thought that Rūm may have referred to a person, although this is conjecture. The town was granted its first charter to hold markets every Sunday and to have an annual four-day fair in May in the reign of Henry I. Later it received an additional charter in the 13th century from Henry III, so that it could hold another annual fair in October.
The Domesday Book (1086) lists three, perhaps four, watermills near Romsey. The town is a mixture of ancient and modern, with a cluster of mediaeval streets and buildings close to the Norman Abbey. This was built on the site of an even older abbey founded in the 10th century. There is King John’s House, which allegedly was used by the king as a hunting lodge, although it appears to have been built later than this particular time. It is worth a visit to see the unusual floor, which is made from animal bones – but be careful, you wouldn’t want to fall and hit your head, or you might suffer a whiplash injury in Romsey.
