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

WARBLINGTON, a parish in Havant district, Hants; on the sound between Langstone and Chichester harbours, 1 mile ESE of Havant r. station. It contains a village of its own name, and the village, head post-office, and r. station of Emsworth. Acres, 3,848; of which 650 are water. Real property, £10,165; of which £100 are in gasworks. ...

Pop. in 1851, 2,302; in 1861, 2,196. Houses, 475. The property is subdivided. The manor belonged anciently to the Warblingtons; and passed to R. de Monthermer, the Montacutes, the Cottons, and others. W. Castle probably dates from the time of the Warbletons, in or before the reign of Henry III.; was rebuilt in the time of Henry VII.; was, for some time, the residence of the Countess of Salisbury, mother of Reginald Pole; was the birthplace of Bishop Cotton, of the time of Elizabeth; and is now a ruin. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Winchester. Value, £600.* Patron, the Rev. W. Norris. The church is Saxon and early English, and all good. The rectories of Emsworth and Redhill are separate benefices.
