In the 1881 census, George and Harriet [Cave] Rogers were operating a 500 acre farm at Plowman's Furze, employing 11 men and 12 boys.

From "History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Northamptonshire"
By William Whellam, and Co.

Astwick and Plowman's Furze form the south and west sides of this parish [Evenley Parish in South Northamptonshire]. The former place contains about 670 acres, the latter about 500 acres, and the whole belongs to Magdalene College, Oxford. The village of Astwick now consisting of a few scattered houses, is situate [sic] about 1.5 miles S.W. of Evenley. "It appears" says Bridges "to have been formerly a large town, as may be seen from the ruins which are called the Old Town. There was formerly a Manor House, the site of which is now overgrown; but there is still remaining a moat full of water, 150 paces long, and 10 yards wide." In 1848, several stones were found laid as if forming a stone descent, or staircase. Plowman's or Plummer's Furze is a single farm house.
