1485 – 1603
The Tudor dynasty was marked by Henry VIII’s break with the papacy in Rome (1534) and the beginning of the English Reformation, which, culminated in the establishment of the Anglican church under Elizabeth I. The Tudor Government raised a huge amount of revenue from the dissolution of the monasteries. The clerical income from First Fruits and Tenths, which previously went to the Pope, now went to the King. During this period in Loxwood, a farmhouse was built that is now The Onslow Arms, the population expanded and a Drove Road was created that is now part of the route of the modern road.
