At one time the parish included Copythorne and Marchwood. Eling church has Saxon foundations, but is thirteenth century in its architecture. Near it is the eighteenth century tidal mill- restored by voluntary labour to working order. Life here can be traced from the Stone Age, through the Bronze Age to Roman times; Romano-British coins have been found at Houndsdown. The seventeenth century bridge over the Test which connected Eling with Southampton can still be seen. Today Totton forms most of the parish, and the old name relates only to a small part of it.
