The meaning of the name 'fearninga broc’ is the brook of Fearna's people. It is mentioned as a boundary in the Millbrook land charters of 956 and 1045. It remains unidentified, but is probably the streamlet that passes near Brownhill House some 200 yards west-south-west of the Brownhill Road / Romsey Road crossing.
