    4 Quickfire Hampshire Facts

    1. WWII
      The iconic Spitfire was invented and produced in Hampshire. Barnes Wallace also carried out experiments in the county for his bouncing bomb which is the famous payload dropped by the heroic Dambusters mission. Hampshire was also the main massing and embarkation point ahead of the D-Day landings.
    2. Inventive
      Other notable Hampshire inventions include the umbrella (Jonas Hanway from Portsmouth saw women using parasols in Persia to protect them from the sun, and thought similar things could be done to avoid rain back in England) and the Fishfinger (America Clarence Birdseye came also trialled his new idea on the people of Southampton, they’re still arguably the greatest sandwich filling of all time!).
    3. Elementary!
      Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle wrote his first Sherlock Holmes mystery, A Study In Scarlot, while living in Hampshire. It’s said the character of Dr Watson was based on the president of Portsmouth’s literary and scientific society who was a friend of the authors.
    4. Sweet FA
      The sad tale of the real Fanny Adams is that of 9yr of Fanny who was brutally murdered and her body dismembered by solicitor’s clerk Frederick Baker in Alton. Around the same time, the Royal Navy had introduced new tinned rations which wits of the Navy soon noted could well be the poor girls missing remains. Other tins were considered to have virtually no meat at all. And ‘Sweet FA’ became part of the Navy’s colourful vernacular.

    Early Days

    Over's Removals

    Neolithic settlers were the first to put down roots in what became the Kingdom of Gwent (not to be confused with the Welsh county of Gwent), they built villages and hill forts inland and on the coast. These peoples formed some of our earliest Celtic tribes who were so busy squabbling with their nearest Celtic neighbours, that they weren’t very organised when the Roman’s rocked up on the beaches of what is now Hampshire.

    Anglo-Saxon Era

    After the Roman’s finally left (what did they do for us?), the Saxons arrived and once again the Celtic Jute tribes were overrun. As the Saxons became firmly established, the merging of the Celts, Britons and Saxons saw the new Anglo-Saxon era began and the formation of the Kingdom of Wessex. Occupying most of the South of England (a country that didn’t even exist yet but was instead a collection of fractious kingdoms), Wessex was the home of the arguably the greatest British ruler of them all. Alfred the Great. It was certainly down to Alfred that the invading Vikings didn’t overrun England and King Alfred’s descendants whose base of power was in Winchester, continued to rule until the arrival of the William the Conqueror.

    11th Century

    The Norman’s were huge fans of Hampshire, in particular the New Forest which became something of a playground for hunting, fishing and falconry. The Normans were also big on building castles, to defend from both a Saxon uprising and also on the coast and guard against a French invasion. This started a trend that continued for hundreds of years and bigger and better fortifications were built to defend from the armies of French Kings, Spanish Queens, Napoleon, privateers and pirates. The forts were also used to watch for smugglers and as beacons for communication.

    20th Century

    During all this activity, Hampshire was established as the centre of England’s naval endeavours. From the Tudor kings through to the D-Day landings of WWII, Portsmouth and Southampton have remained two of the Navy’s most important and hardworking ports.

    It was at these ports that the bulk of the vessels and troops set out on route to Normandy for the D-Day landings. It was this event that changed the course of the Second World War and ended any hopes Nazi Germany had of invading England.

    Historical Claims to Fame

    Hampshire’s sea-faring traditions and ingenuity have also helped in other ways, for instance, it was the good people in Hampshire that helped develop the UK’s first fish finger. Spitfire aircraft, hovercraft, the drydock (first created in 1495 to help repair ships), windsurfing (invented by Peter Chilvers in Hayling Island, 1958), the ‘air port’ (the term was first used at Woolston, Southampton for the terminal designed to take passengers on the flying boat service… ). The list is impressive.

    Not only is Hampshire the home of the Royal Navy, but Farnborough was the birthplace of the Royal Air Force. Yes, England has a lot to thank Hampshire for.
