I am interested in the history of the Vikings but wondered if they ever reached Salisbury. I have lots of information about when they were in York and the north but it made me think about which other British towns and cities they occupied. If you have any general information I would be most grateful as I have found very little on the Internet.

I recently came across the following notice in the Salisbury Times of 27th January 1933, under the heading 'Wooton Bassett Flitch Trial': “At a flitch trial held at Wootton Bassett last week, Mr E.C. Fielder was judge and Mr H. Dale, Clerk of the Court: there were also four barristers, all in legal attire. Dr J.M. Ross was foreman of the jury of bachelors and spinsters. Upon the long table in front of the judge were the flitch, two hams, two pieces of bacon and a p[ork pie]. Five claimants were ushered in by the ushers ... and the Sergeant .... The awards were as follow: 1: Mr and Mrs Carter; 2: ... Street; 3: ... Woodward; 4: .... Parsons; 5: ... Hawkins”. So, if you will pardon my ignorance, what was that all about? Clearly it was an award to married couples, and taken seriously if barristers were prepared to be in attendance, but what else? Was it a Wiltshire custom?

In his will, my father left to my brother a beautiful Queen Anne walnut writing desk which he believed to have come originally from the Judges' Lodging in Salisbury when this was given up sometime in the 19th Century and then belonged to his grandfather Robert Robey of West Grimstead, Wiltshire. Recent research into the family history shows that Robert Robey, who was a gamekeeper, died in 1891 so he must have acquired the desk before that date. I wonder whether you have any knowledge of a Judges' Lodging in Salisbury? If so, I should be most interested to hear of its location and whether it still exists. Are there any records of its disposal? - probably in the second half of the 19th Century - even an inventory of its contents!

I have just read with great interest your fascinating on-line history of Whiteparish. (where I passed some of my boyhood). This however it to tell you that during our research into Edward III's army for our book on the Battle of Crecy, Dr Ayton and myself came across the name of an archer called "Whiteparish". This was a rare occasion because unlike Agincourt, we cannot put names to more than perhaps three dozen archers at Crecy, because the payroll musters are not available. The mention of the name "whiteparish" for an archer however, surely suggest he made his way to Portsmouth as part of a retinue raised in Salisbury. We see no more of him sadly, than that he was present in Portsmouth. We know Edward III lost several archers on the way to Crecy, notably at Caen, Poissy and no doubt through illness. The best estimate for archer losses at Crécy is about 300. If Whiteparish was a parker or verderer we would consider him something of a marksman, perhaps close to today's snipers, and capable of targeting French captains.
