|About the Study
||Nassington is a small, picturesque village which has been in existence since at least Anglo Saxon times. Life in the village has been heavily influenced by its sitting on the River Nene, early enclosure (largely complete by the early to mid 17th century) and by the establishment of a Prebend in 1107. Its geographical location also puts it at the centre of a number of political crises and conflicts, which have effected the stability (or otherwise) of the inhabitants in the medieval era and on through the reformation to the agricultural and industrial revolutions. This study focuses on life in the village between 1790 and 1861 when many of my own ancestors lived in the village and immediate surrounds.
