Three cottages were built in the 1840s on the bend in the High Street by John Nathaniel Atkins for his daughter Eliza who had married James Barnard. James died in 1845 and Eliza went on to let two of the cottages, herself living in the third. To accommodate impoverished tenants, extra staircase were installed in the 1850s and were still there in the 1920s. ‘The Mayor of East Meon’, Herbie Goddard, lived I Barnards after WWII and flooding was frequent until the river was re-engineered in the 1950s.
