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

SOUTHWICK, a parish, with a village, in Fareham district, Hants; 2½ miles N of Porchester r. station, and 3¾ ENE of Fareham. It has a post-office under Fareham, and a fair on 6 April. Acres, 4,100. Real property, £4,541. Pop., 609. Houses, 123. The manor, with S. Park, belongs to T. Thistlethwayte, Esq. A black friary stood anciently here; was the marriage-place of Henry VI.; went, at the dissolution, to the Whites; and has left some scanty ruins. The living is a donative, annexed to Boarhunt. There is a national school.
