The Lamb Inn, Nomansland
Nomansland is unique in that it can trace the origin of its name to a specific date: October 23, 1802. This was the day on which an encroachment case was settled. A John Shergold had built a cottage which was deemed by the Crown to fall in the area of the New Forest and not in the "Bishop of Winchester land". The court found in favour of John Shergold and determined that his cottage was not on Crown land. People in the Court deduced that the land therefore sat neither in Crown land nor in the Bishop's land.
