Freemantle

This article of mine appeared in Journal of the English Place-Name Society, 40, 97-111 (2008). The abstract follows:

I examine the meaning `cold cloak' conventionally given to the place-name Freemantle in Hampshire, and show that it arises from a re-interpretation of a common French place-name originally meaning `wheat field'.

A pdf offprint is available here.
