Bursledon  Hampshire


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

BURSLEDON, a village and a parish in South Stoneham district, Hants. The village stands on the Humblecreek, 4¼ miles SSW of Botley and Bishops-Waltham r. station, and 4¾ ESE of Southampton; and has a post office under Southampton. A small quay is here; and trade is carried on in corn and coals; and ship-building was formerly done to the extent of constructing some large men of war. ...

The parish comprises 759 acres of land and 110 of water. Real property, £2,231. Pop., 659. Houses, 149. The property is divided among a few. The living is a vicarage, under the vicarage of Hound, in the diocese of Winchester. Value, £110.* Patron, Winton College. The church possesses interest, but is not good. A railway from Botley to Bishops-Waltham was formed in 1862-3; and one was contemplated, at the same time, from Botley to Bursledon.
