Avins Farm

OS Map 1896 (NLS)

Another farm of which there is no early mention is Avins Farm. The first time we hear of it is in 1568, when Joane sister of John Burstye, of Averns, was buried. Whether the name comes from a fen or from aven,- fodder produce, which is connected with oats, remains uncertain. Both Avins and Hill House appear to be offshoots of the older house of Birstye before it shrank from its high estate.
