Kings Worthy  Hampshire


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

KINGSWORTHY, a village and a parish in Winchester district, Hants. The village stands among finelytimbered slopes, on the N bank of the Itchin, about a mile from the Southwestern railway, and 2 miles NNE of Winchester; is remarkably pretty; and has a postoffice under Winchester. The parish includes the tything of Abbotsworthy, and comprises 2, 168 acres. ...

Real property, £2, 513. Pop., 359. Houses, 69. The property is divided chiefly among three. The manor, with Worthy Park, belongs to G. A. E. Wall, Esq. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Winchester. Value, £452. * Patron, Lord Northbrook. The church is early perpendicular, and was recently enlarged and beautified. The parsonage is a spacious edifice in the Tudor style; and was erected, at a cost of £10, 000, by the late Sir Thomas Baring, Bart., as a residence for his son, the present Bishop of Durham. The schools were rebuilt in 1859; and they are handsome and commodious, and have a reading room and lending library attached.
