Documentary Evidence


The earliest reference to Brenkley is 1242, when it was listed as a member of the barony of Mitford. In the Lay Subsidy Rolls of 1296, 1312 and 1336 there were 6 - 7 taxpayers. By the time of the 1661-5 Hearth Tax returns there were 2 householders who owed the tax, 4 who did not. The 3 farms on the first edition Ordnance Survey plan exist today, at least as buildings. It appears to have been a very small 2-row village. Some earth-works exist between the buildings on the south side, and there is ridge and furrow behind the north row.
