TITCHFIELD, a small but well-built town and parish in the Hundred of the same name, Fareham Union and division, South Hants, and diocese of Winchester, 87 1/2 miles south-west of London, 9 south-east of Southampton, 2 1/2 west of Fareham station, and 6 north-west of Gosport, contained, in 1851,3,956 inhabitants, whereof 531 were in the town. It was originally a market town. The town is situated in a beautiful valley, through which the river Aire wends its way towards the Solent, opposite Osborne House. The living is a vicarage, with the curacies of Crofton and Sarisbury annexed, of the annual value of 260, and in the gift of Henry Peter Delme, Esq., who is also lord of the manor; the Rev. W. M. Cosser is the incumbent, and the Rev. Richard Arnold Alderson the curate. The church, dedicated to St. Peter, is a spacious and ancient structure, the workmanship of different ages; its date is 1243; the north side was built by William of Wykeham; the south chancel contains a splendid monument, underneath which are deposited the remains of Sir Thomas Wriothesley, chancellor to Henry VIII., buried in 1562; portions of his armour are yet preserved. The principal entrance to the church is by an ancient Norman doorway. The church contains many interesting monuments, and is well worth a visit from the curious. Near to the town are the ruins of a noble mansion, Titchfield House; on this site stood an abbey, in ancient records called "Tychfelle Abbey," built in 1232; at the dissolution of the monasteries, in the reign of Henry VIII, the Chancellor Wriothesley obtained from his royal master the abbey and the land pertaining thereto; with the materials he built for himself a "righte goodlye house, embattled." In this mansion Charles I. found a short safety when pursued by Cromwell and his party; it has long since been in ruins, not having been inhabited for nearly a century. There are two chapels of ease in this parish, the one at Crofton, 1 mile south-cast, of very early date, dedicated to St. Thomas, and the other at Sarisbury. There are in the town a neat Independent chapel and a National school; also Independent chapels at Swanwick, 3 miles north-west, and Warsash, 3 miles west; and an Infant school at Stubbington, 2 miles south-east. Fairs are held on the 14th May and 26th September. The parish is the largest in the county; its area is 15,900 acres. HOOK is 3 miles west; Abshot, 2 miles west; Posbrook, 1 mile south; Meon, 1 mile south-west.
The district chapelry of SARISBURY contained, In 1861, a population of 1,124. The church is dedicated to St. Paul. Here are a Baptist chapel and a National school.
