Marchwood

MARCHWOOD, a tything, in the parish of Eling, union of New-Forest, hundred of Redbridge, Romsey and S. divisions of the county of Southampton; containing 158 inhabitants. Here is a magazine of gunpowder for the supply of Portsmouth garrison. A district church, erected by H. H. Holloway, Esq., and dedicated to St. John the Apostle, was consecrated in 1843: it is a good specimen of early English.

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