Full Description

The settlement of Quadring appears to have shifted focus from the area around the church to the present location sometime in the late medieval to early post-medieval period. By 1563 there were 88 households recorded in Quadring. {1} Population appeared to remain at a similar level in the early post-medieval period as it is recorded as being 80 families in 1706 and 90 in 1722. {2} The population had reached 506 in 1801, and doubled to 1001 by 1861, but fell again to 825 in 1901. {3} A sherd of possible Toynton ware pottery and a fragment of brick, both dating to the late medieval period, were recovered in November 2002, during the archaeological monitoring of goundworks for the construction of two detached bungalows at 99-101 Watergate, Quadring (PRN 23954a - TF 2295 3358). Both artefacts were redeposited, and were thought to have formed components of manuring scatters. {4}{5}
