Salterns  Hampshire


In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Salterns like this:

Salterns, Great, par., Hants, in Portsea Island, on Langston harbour, 3 miles NE. of Portsmouth, 346 ac. and 177 tidal water and foreshore, pop. 33.

The location is approximately that of Great Salterns parish on the 1888 Diagram of Sanitary Districts for Hampshire, as well as the name "Salterns" appearing on the OS First Series map.
