Did You Know These Facts About Badgemore, Henley?

On an old map of the area from 1816 there is a farm named Turpin Farm. Now we know highway robbery was quite rife in the area as just down the road we have Pack and Prime Lane but I cannot find anything that says Dick Turpin operated in this area. Yes there are tales but no substantial evidence unless of course you know differently? Of course it might be a coincidence. That name might have been the genuine farmer's name and have no bearing at all. Also seeing that it's a 100 years or thereabouts after Turpin's activity that could well be the case. We will have to dig deeper now!!
