The parish includes the village of Newtown, and is nearly separated by a small rivulet, which flows through several villages, and eventually discharges itself into Southampton Water. The greater part of the land is arable, the remainder downs or common. The village, which was partially burnt in 1740, is neatly built. The tithes have been commuted for a rent-charge of £280. The living is a rectory* with the curacy of Soberton annexed, in the diocese of Winchester, value £568, in the patronage of the bishop. "
