Gosport History and History Resources

This page has links to the History pages on this website and to History Resources on other site with a bias towards local Gosport history. When looking for items, for peroids before 1922 it is advisable to also look up Alverstoke as at that time the town of Gosport was in the Parish of Alverstoke.  Though Gosport only became a Borough in 1922 you will find it referred to as a Borough well before that.
