East Tytherley is a small village in Hampshire, England.[1][2]

The name Tytherley comes from Old English and means thin or tender wood.[3]

The village was given to Queen Philippa by her husband Edward III in 1335. When the Black Death spread through London she moved her court to the village.[citation needed]

In more recent history William Fothergill Cooke invented the first commercial electrical telegraph whilst living in the village.[citation needed]
