Hathaway Hamlet dates from the C17, when it was a collection
of 2 or 3 cottages and farm buildings; in the late C18 most of
the buildings were converted into workhouse and almshouses for
the parish of Old Stratford, being superseded in 1836 by the
union workhouse in Stratford. The house had a weaving shop
used by John Morris in the late C17 and was divided between
his sons-in-law, Samuel and Adam, by his will, one of whom
retained the weaving shop.
(Bearman R: Hathaway Hamlet: typed notes: 1972-).
