"LYMINGTON, a parish, parliamentary borough, and market town, in the division of Lymington, county Hants, 13 miles S.E. of Ringwood, and 20 S.W. of Southampton. The London and South-Western railway has a branch line from Brockenhurst junction to this place. It is situated on the western bank of the river Lymington, or Boldre, which discharges itself into the Solent, and is here crossed by a bridge. In Domesday Book it is called Lentune, when it belonged to the Ivry family. In the reign of Henry I. it appears to have been a place of considerable trade, mostly in wines from France, and at that time also it first became celebrated for its salt-works."
