The town, with a population of around 14, , is thought to have taken its name from the dense hazel woodland and a lake mere that once stood close to the centre of the town. An alternative view is that a Saxon settlement here was named after the tribe occupying it, although again it is likely that the tribe’s name reflected its local geographic origins. Local historians believe that based on Haslemere’s original street layout that it is an example of a ‘planted’ town – literally a settlement ‘planted’ in open countryside to provide market town functionality – and with a characteristic T-shape common in the 12th and 13th centuries. In an annual fair was granted by charter and appears to have flourished until the end of the 16th century when Haslemere was documented as having fallen on hard times. Both the market and fair had been abandoned which would have had a considerable impact on the town as both events generated revenues in the form of market tolls. Elizabeth I granted a new charter in which gave the borough the right to elect two members of Parliament and also provided for the revival of the market and fair. This borough status was withdrawn in the Reform Bill of A map created by one William Morley c , which is displayed in Haslemere Museum, clearly shows the T-shaped layout of the town with Market House at its focus. A map drawn 50 years after that of Morley’s clearly shows the newly established turnpike road linking Haslemere to Godalming and building development in the town suggesting a period of prosperity.

Background[ edit ] Viking [b] raids began in England in the late 8th century, primarily on monasteries. And then the reeve rode to the place, and would have driven them to the king’s town, because he knew not who they were: These were the first ships of Danishmen which sought the land of the English nation. Bertin also reported the incident, stating: They wielded power over the land at will.
The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle has repeated references during his reign of victories won by ealdormen with the men of their shires. This model is now in Derby Museum. The historian Richard Abels suggested that this was to differentiate between the Viking war bands and those of military forces organised by the state or the crown. However, by the late 10th and early 11th century, here was used more generally as the term for army, whether it was Viking or not.

The grant, which was made to the Lord of Westbrook Manor, Edmund Woodstock who was the king’s brother and Duke of Kent, was for the 9-day fair Westbrook Fair starting on the vigil eve of Whitsuntide. Another fair, for which there is no record of a charter but may have preceded Westbrook, was held in the Manor of Eastbrook in the area around Crown Close. When it became built upon in the 19th century the location of the fair shifted to various sites that had been shared by the Westbrook Fair which included the Market Place, various meadows and the Butts.
Eastbrook Fair was originally held on St Lawrence’s Day 1 with its origins suggesting that it could have been a patronal festival. Once the country became non-Roman Catholic this particular religious connection appears to have ceased. By the mid s the date of the Eastbrook Fair had been changed to Michaelmas 2 to better suit the farming community as the earlier date had resulted in disruptions at harvest time.
Some accounts of the 18th century fair survive and provide an interesting picture of how the fair must have looked at the time. As well as the usual melee of travellers and local people with their stalls there was an established cheese fair.
