In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Fleet like this:
FLEET, a village and a parish in Weymouth district, Dorset. The village stands on Fleet-water, 3¼ miles WNW of Weymouth town and r. station; is a coast-guard station; and suffered much damage in a great storm of 1824, when the sea broke through the Chesil bank. The parish comprises 845 acres of land, and 540 of water. ...
Real property, £884. Pop., 160. Houses, 31. The manor belonged to Christchurch priory; and passed to the Mohuns and the Goulds. Fleet House is the seat of the Rev. G. Goodden. Fleet-water runs up from Portland roads inside the Chesil bank; and is 7 miles long, and a ¼ of a mile broad. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Salisbury. Value, £66. Patron, the Rev. G. Goodden. The church was destroyed by the storm of 1824; and a new church, in the early English style, with apsidal chancel, open porch, and bell-turret, was built in 1862.
