Anglesey  Hampshire


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

ANGLESEY, a charming watering-place, in Alverstoke parish, Hants; 2 miles SW of Gosport, opposite Spithead and the Isle of Wight. It was founded in 1826, by the Marquis of Anglesey; it includes a terrace, a crescent, public gardens, marine villas, a hotel, reading rooms, baths, and a church; and it commands splendid views and has delightful environs. The church is an edifice in the Tudor style, built in 1844; and united with the rectory of Alverstoke.
