Notes: Just outside of the village of Stockbridge on the edge of the King's Somborne road, a yew stands alone in the middle of a small roundabout by a group of houses known as the Milsons. During my research I discovered that William de Briwere had a large mill in the water meadows near the village. His son, also named William, gave the generous gift of the mill to the priory at Mottisfont. I believe that this might be a yew planted by the monks to mark their important acquisition.
