POOLE, is a corporate and parliamentary borough, market town and seaport in the hundred of Cogdean and union of its name, 27 miles E. from Dorchester, 30 S. from Salisbury, 34 S.W. from Southampton, and 123 W.S.W. from London, via the Southampton and Dorchester railway; a branch from that line - about 2 miles in length - terminating at Hamworthy, a distance of about half-a-mile w. from the town.

Poole derives its name from the Bay, near which it is situate and the harbour washes three sides of the town. Poole is built upon a point of land, something in the shape of a flat-topped pyramid, jutting horizontally into the harbour; the town consists of several good streets, running nearly parallel to one another, with numerous minor streets and lanes branching from them; these streets are mostly well paved and lighted. Many of the houses, both ancient and modern, are fine substantial brick buildings and have a truly respectable aspect, but several of the older tenements are of but mean appearance when compared with the more comfortable-looking modern erections. About the centre of the town is the Guildhall, a handsome and commodious structure, two stories high, erected in 1761; on the Quay is the Custom house and the Town house, the latter a neat and convenient erection was rebuilt about 20 years ago. Some few years back a substantial wooden bridge was thrown over the northern part of the harbour, this was chiefly effected through the instrumentality of Lord de Mauley and is a great convenience to the public, as by its construction a new thoroughfare to the westward has been opened, saving two miles in distance. A literary, scientific and mechanic's institute was established in 1848, for the instruction of its members in science and general knowledge, by means of lectures delivered at stated periods. The institution contains a library of about 800 volumes, a Museum, and a Philosophical apparatus, and classes are formed amongst its members, who number about 160.

Poole was not only incorporated by Queen Elizabeth, but like Southampton, formed into a county of itself, bearing the title of the 'town and county of the town of Poole.' It elects a sheriff annually. By the provisions of the Municipal Reform Act, it was divided into two wards, the corporation consisting of a mayor, 6 aldermen and 18 councillors, who are styled 'the mayor, bailiffs, burgesses and commonalty of the town of Poole.' Quarter Sessions are held before the recorder and the magisterial functionaries; and a court of record weekly; this is also a court town under the recent 'County Court Act,' for recovering demands not exceeding £50. The elective franchise was granted as long back as the 14th Edward III., since which time (with only one exception), it has returned two members to parliament; the Reform Act only interfered so far as to considerably enlarge the boundaries of the borough. Poole has long been noted for its foreign trade, much of which is with Newfoundland, and a general one has latterly sprung up also with the British and American colonies; the imports from those climes being vast quantities of fish and oils, besides large numbers of skins and furs; other countries send provisions for ships, timber, flax, tar, hides, corn, wines, fruit, &c. A considerable coasting trade is carried on, particularly in the transfer of corn, which has become an article of great import and export at this harbour; the quantity of Purbeck clay shipped here is enormous, upwards of 120,000 tons of this plastic material being annually sent off to the potteries of Staffordshire, and other parts of the kingdom. Formerly there was an extensive oyster fishery here which in the spring of the year employed many sloops, but this source of marine profit has not only been materially impaired but almost destroyed by allowing the fishermen to dredge without restraint. There are manufactures of cordage, fishing nets, sails, sail cloth, and the usual requisites for shipping; these with rope making and ship and yacht building, - particularly of the latter craft, some of the finest and fleetest vessels of that description having been constructed here - furnish a large amount of employment. The Harbour, which offers superior advantages, contains an area of about 10,000 acres, being land-locked on all sides, the entrance to which on the south-east is both easy and safe: ships of upwards of 300 tons burthen, drawing 16 or 17 feet of water, are constantly and readily admitted into the harbour, with their cargoes, and can lie with perfect ease and security alongside the quays. One remarkable feature in connection with this port, is that about two hours after the ordinary time of high water, the tide flow, again for about an hour; thus affording all the advantages of a second high water in twelve hours. In short the greatest facilities exist for all the purposes of general commerce, independently of the many evident capabilities of improvement. The Church (St. Jamess) is a handsome edifice, erected in 1820, at a cost of upwards of £20,000. At Ham is a new Church, built upon the site of one destroyed during the civil wars. Neat Churches have also recently been constructed at Longfleet and Parkstone, two parishes, adjoining Poole, and forming part of the borough. At Poole are places of worship for Baptists, Independents, Unitarians and the Society of Friends; and in the West Quay road is a new Roman Catholic Chapel. The public charities are a Free School, now conducted upon the National system, and some alms-houses; several sums of money have been invested in the funds by benevolent individuals, the dividends arising therefrom to be expended in bread for the poor. The Poole Poor Law Union comprehends 8 parishes and embraces an area of 38 square miles. Henry III. granted a market and two fairs to Poole, the former is held on thursday and the latter on May 1st and Nov. 2nd; each of the fairs continuing nine days. The population of the town and county of Poole, which includes Longfleet, Parkstone and Hamworthy is about 10,000.

BROWNSEA, formerly known as Branksey island, is a small island in the parish of Studland, lying at the east end of Poole harbour, about 3 miles S.E. from Poole; it is nearly 1½ mile in length and the greatest breadth is about 1 mile. The soil is sandy and most of the island being overrun with heath, furze and fern, is considered hardly worth the expense of improving, though some attempts of the kind have been made - on one part a tolerable crop of barley has been raised, and there is also some little pasture land. At the eastern portion of the island is Brownsea castle, the seat of Sir Augustus Foster, Bart. to whom the island belongs; the castle occupies the same site as did a block-house or small fort, erected in the reign of Henry VIII. for the purpose of protecting Poole harbour, the only other building upon the island is a coast guard station.

LONGFLEET is a continuation of Poole to the northwards, and forms part of the borough; it is a parish in the tything of Great Canford. Many new houses grace this locality as does also a Church in the early English style of architecture, affording accommodation for about 400 persons.

PARKSTONE is a picturesque village, 1 mile E. from Poole, it stands partly in a valley and partly on an acclivity, the latter commands some fine views of the English Channel, with its islands of Purbeck and Wight; the castles of Brownsea and Corfe; and the well sheltered harbours of Wareham and Poole, with their floating wealth completely locked in by the land. The village forms a most agreeable suburb to Poole and its healthy and pleasant site is studded with pretty houses and handsome mansions; the land hereabouts is generally heathy and poor, but has been much improved by cultivation. In 1833 a neat Church (St. Peter) in the Gothic style of building was erected, and a parochial district (for ecclesiastical purposes only) assigned to it; here is also a Chapel for persons of the Independent persuasion.
