The Charter to hold a Wednesday market in the town was awarded to the Lord of the Manor by King Henry III in 1226 to the Earl of Pembroke.
The Morant family bought the Market rights 200 years ago when they purchased 2000 acres of Ringwood and surrounding area from Lord Arundell in 1792.
Throughout the centuries it was an essential part of trade in the area, originally selling livestock and local produce.
