"MILLBROOK, a parish in the hundred of Mainsbridge, county Hants, 2 miles N.W. of Southampton, its post town. It is a station on the London and S.W. railway. It is situated on the Southampton Water, and contains the hamlets of Hill, Sidford, and Shirley. It had formerly a considerable trade in coal, timber, corn, and malt, which were conveyed by means of the Andover canal and river Test, which falls into the Southampton Water at Redbridge, but this trade has recently much declined. A portion of the inhabitants are employed in the shipbuilding yard and in the iron works at Shirley, where is also a manufactory for edge tools. The soil is generally light and shallow, resting upon a subsoil of gravel. At Mill Place, within the parish, are brass and iron foundries, and works for the manufacture of marine and locomotive engines. "
