Keyhaven  Hampshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Keyhaven like this:

KEYHAVEN, a tything, with a village, in Milford parish, Hants; on the coast, opposite Hurst Castle, 3 miles SSW of Lymington. It has a post office under Lymington; and it forms a ready point of proceeding, by boat, to Hurst Castle. Real property, £1, 140. Pop., 22. A hurricane, in Nov. 1839, drove hither such an extraordinary tide as overflowed and damaged the land, and seriously imperilled the village.
