HISTORY
* The site of Old Yew Tree cottage has a very long and interesting history. An earlier farmhouse, known as Hughe's, stood on the site in 1282 when Hugh Weylot inherited it with 6 acres. In 1414, William atte Hulde purchased it and later it was left to his two daughters, initially Julia who was married to John Mixenbroke, then to her younger sister Agnes, who was married to John Parys. It is known through Dendro dating that the oldest part of Old Yew Tree Cottage was built in 1551. Joan and John Browne were the owners at that time and it was subsequently left to their son Roger.

* It is generally understood, albeit not proven, that William Silver Billy Beldham was born in the cottage in 1766. Silver Billy was a renowned cricketer playing for Hampshire, Surrey and All England as well as local Gentry teams. He is acknowledged as one of the greatest batsmen in the underarm era and his cricketing days spanned 39 years.
