Crofton

CROFTON, a district incumbency, in the parish and hundred of Titchfield, union of Fareham, Fareham, and S. divisions of the county of Southampton, 2½ miles (S. W. by W.) from Fareham; containing 809 inhabitants. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the patronage of the Vicar of Titchfield: the chapel, dedicated to the Holy Rood, is a very ancient edifice, lately thoroughly repaired. A school, in connexion with the National Society, was built in 1839, at the expense of the Rev. David Haynes.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 7th edition, published in 1848.
