Road Repairs.
At a time when there was no highway rate wealthy parishioners left money to repair the roads, e.g., John Cobb left 20s. to repair the road from Bromefield to the Church of Herne and the same sum to repair the Church road from Hampton to the house of William Tanner; and William Salkyn left 20s. towards repairing the road from his house at Ford as far as the Church of Herne (Nos. 20, 29). Similar bequests are noted in Nos. 47, 52, 56.
