Hound  Hampshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Hound like this:

HOUND, a village and a parish in South Stoneham district, Hants. The village stands on the E side of Southampton water, near Netley r. station, and 3¾ miles SE of Southampton; and its post town is either NetleyAbbey or Hamble, under Southampton. The parish contains the tythings of Satchell, Sholing, and Netley. ...

Acres, 4, 691; of which 1, 035 are water. Real property, exclusive of Sholing, £3, 207. Pop. in 1 851, 807; in 1861, 2, 039. Houses, 350. The increase of pop. was caused partly by works in progress at the Victoria hospital at Netley. The property is subdivided. The objects of chief interest are at Netley-Abbey, and will be noticed in the article Netley. Much of the land is under wood. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Winchester. Value, £215.* Patron, Winchester College. The church is very old; was restored in 1866; and consists only of nave and very long chancel, with small wooden steeple. The vicarage of Bursledon and the p. curacy of Sholing are separate benefices; and the latter was constituted in 1866.
