Berrick Salome, Oxfordshire

Berrick Salome{{#invoke:Footnotes|sfn}} is a village and civil parish in South Oxfordshire, England, about 3 miles north of Wallingford. The parish includes the hamlets of Berrick Prior, Roke and Rokemarsh. In 1965, Reginald Ernest Moreau (1897–1970), an eminent ornithologist, and a Berrick Salome resident from 1947, realized that he could build up a picture of the village as it had been in the decades before WW1, based on the recollections of elderly villagers. His study, which was published in 1968 as The Departed Village, also included an introduction to local history which has provided much of the material used in the following sections.
