About Ringwood

Located northeast of Bournemouth and southwest of Southampton, Ringwood is a market town in south-west Hampshire, England, on the River Avon not far from the New Forest. It was established by the Anglo-Saxons, and ever since the Medieval Ages, it has played host to a weekly market.

A charter from 961 shows that King Edgar granted 22 hides of land in Ringwood, Rimecuda, to Abingdon Abbey.

Runcwuda and Rimucwuda are alternative spellings of the name from the 10th century

Wood (Wuda) is the second element; Rimuc (which may be derived from Rima, meaning “boundary”) is the result.

Ringwood’s location on the outskirts of the New Forest and the county of Hampshire may have inspired the town’s unusual moniker. William Camden, writing in 1607, provided a considerably more fantastical etymology, saying that the name derives from the Old English regne-wood, with the Regni being an ancient people of Britain.

All except six hides from the village of Ringwood (Rincvede) were transferred to the New Forest by the Crown in 1086, as recorded in the Domesday Book.

Earl Tostig had ruled over Ringwood prior to 1066, as shown in.
