Oaktrow Farm

Hob Uid: 37035
Location :
Somerset
Somerset West and Taunton
Cutcombe
Grid Ref : SS9430040400
Summary : A settlement called Oaktrow was allegedly mentioned in the Domesday Book. However it is thought more likely that the name refers only to a post medieval farm of the 16th century.
More information : [SS 9420 4040] Oaktrow Farm. (1)

"Betwixt Cutcombe and Timberscombe there is a depopulated place,
called Oaktrow, which having been parcel of the manor of
Cutcombe-Mohun, we shall here briefly notice. Its ancient name was
Wochetrev, as we find it in Domesday Book." (2)

[SS 943 404} Collinson refers to a depopulated place called Oaktrow
but there seems no reason to think there was ever more than a farm
here. (3)

Post medieval pottery and glass from Oaktrow, Cutcombe donated to
Taunton Museum by Mr and Mrs C. J. Nurcombe in 1958, Accession No.
58.A.6. (4)
