Cox/Cock Extracts from the 1851 Census for Hampshire

 

Hampshire or Hants as it is sometimes abbreviated to, was originally know as Southamptonshire, a maritime county, and in 1872 included the islands of Hayling, Portsea and the Isle of Wight. It also includes the tract of land which is a Royal Domain, known throughout the world as "The New Forest" where William Rufus met his death from an arrow. Much of the county has a Roman influence at Porchester, Winchester (The Olde Capital of England) and Clausenteum (on the banks of the river Itchen at Northam/Bitterne in Southampton). The county also boasts the ancient town of Beaulieu with its Palace, home of the Montague family who caught the imagination of the world with a motor museum, but the county is best know for its wood shipbuilding industry, carried on over the years on the banks of its many inlets and rivers, such as Buckler's Hard on the edge of the New Forest from where there was a plentiful supply of oak.
