The information on the wiki is very interesting and helpful when researching places associated with family during my research into my family history. I just wanted to add some information to the above entry.
An ancestor of mine (great-great-grandfather), Alexander Day Slade, born in January 1836 in Millbrook (and baptised there in the April of 1836) is noted in the census record of 3 April 1881 as Baker and Innkeeper at the City Arms Inn in Nursling. I have not yet discovered the exact dates from when he began here, to when he left here, but by 1891 he had moved on to Southampton and in 1871 I think he was away at sea and his wife, Ellen, was staying with her parents.
In 1881 Alexander was aged 45. He was head of the household and lived there with his wife, Ellen Slade; a son, Frank Ancliff Slade (my great grandfather), aged 8 and daughter Lydia Mary Slade, aged 6; as well as a boarder James Davis, aged 38, a general labourer and born in Wiltshire. Frank is noted as born in Romsey and Lydia in Nursling.
