Bedhampton  Hampshire


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

BEDHAMPTON, a village and a parish in Havant district, Hants. The village stands on Langston harbour, adjacent to the South Coast railway, 1 mile W of Havant; and it has a post office under Havant, commands a charming sea-view, and is noted for its fine springs. The parish comprises 2,416 acres of land and 190 of water. ...

Real property, £4,182. Pop., 576. Houses, 119. The property is divided among a few. The manor once belonged to a dowager Countess of Kent, who took a nun's vow in grief for the death of her husband, afterwards married Sir Eustace Dabriesches-court, founded a chantry in penance for her marriage, and died here in 1411. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Winchester. Value, £328* Patron, E. Daubeny, Esq. The church is a small, old, substantial edifice, with pointed steeple.
