Medieval economy

This section describes activities which supported or arose from medieval farming, including  the fairs and markets  at which farmers bought and sold  agricultural products, mills, and the luxuries which the bishops and their gifts derived from their lands in East Meon.

The Black Death drastically reduced the workforce available to the Diocese which was forced to let out lands which it had previously farmed in demesne, which led to the creation of a sub-manor at Bereleigh.

Bishop Waynflete donated lands in Oxenbourne to support the finances of the new Oxford college he had founded
