In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Embley like this:
EMBLEY, a tything in East Wellow parish, Hants. 2 miles W of Romsey. Embley Park here is the seat of W. E. Nightingale, Esq.; possesses much interest as the home of Florence Nightingale; is an edifice in the Tudor style; and has very fine gardens, with a charming view.
The location is that marked as "Embley Manor" on the modern 1:25,000 map. Additional information about this locality is available for East Wellow
