Parson and Parish in 18th century Hampshire: Replies to Bishops' Visitations
Edited by W R Ward (1995)

Replies made by Hampshire clergy to three sets of visitation ‘inquiries’ issued by bishops of Winchester in 1725, 1765 and 1788. Coming parish by parish the replies cover practically the whole county (including the Isle of Wight in 1725 and 1788) and contain a wealth of valuable information for the local, social and church historian, ranging from early population statistics to details of school and charity provision. They also record the clergy’s view of other religious bodies – nonconformists and Roman Catholics – very often for areas where no other information survives and form an invaluable guide to the religious pulse of the diocese.
