Norden's Hampshire 1595

click for feature map
Rivers John Norden's map shows a number of rivers, drawn by broad wiggly lines tapering inland; most are not named. A stream might have a pond at its head, an echo of a medieval convention? Hampshire's major rivers are all shown. The rivers that are shown can mostly be indentified, but with a degree of guesswork.
