Post Office Directory 1851, Chichester, West Sussex

Chichester is an ancient Roman city, seat of a diocese and market town, having an exclusive jurisdiction, and giving name to a rape, is locally situate in the hundred of Box and Stockbridge, on the London, Brighton & South-Coast Railway, 61 miles from London, 30 from Southampton, 18 from Portsmouth, 11 from Arundel, and 7 from Bognor. The city, which is of very remote antiquity, was, about the close of the 5th century, taken from the Britions by Ella, whose son Cissa rebuilt it, and calledit after his own name, Cissa’s Ceaster, from whence it present name derived. It is pleasantly situated on a gentle eminence, a few miles south of the Great Downs, which stretch along this part of the county; and is nearly surrounded by the river Lavant, which flows at its base. The Port of Chichester is a Dell Quay, about 1 ½ miles from the city; and a branch of the Arundel & Portsmouth Canal comes up from the south suburb of the city, but both have been rendered of less importance since the opening of the South-Coast Railway. The principal streets diverge east, west, north, & south from the ancient Gothis market-cross, built by Bishop Storey, in 1500. The city walls, more than a ! ½ miles in circumference, are lined within by ranges of lofty elm trees, which from a very elevated situation, has a beautiful and uniform, yet uncommon appearance, the Cathedral and its spire being the only objects visible above them; the gates of the city have long been removed, the last having been taken down in 1773. The houses are in general well built; the streets are paved, cleansed, and lighted with gas. The city is watched by a local police. Chichester is the place of election for West Sussex, and a polling place. The government of the city is regulated by a charter, granted by James II., and vested in a mayor and municipal corporation; and petty sessions and court of record are holden here, and a county court for the recovery of debts under £50. The trade consists chiefly in corn, coal, timber, flour and malt; the malting trade is rather extensive; woolspapling, tanning and brewing are likewise branches of some importance. The weekly markets are held on Wednesday and Saturday; every Wednesday fortnight a large market for corn, cattle, sheep, pigs &c., is held; and fairs are held on St. George’s day, Whit-Monday, St. James’ day, Michaelmas-day, and sloe fair ten days after. John Hardman, a London tobacconist, left an estate of £673 per annum to the poor of the city. The other charitable institutions are numerous and well conducted. A grammar school was founded in 1497, by Bishop Storey. The Whitby or blue coat school, in which 38 boys are clothed, lodged, boarded and educated, was established by Oliver Whitby, in 1702. There is a free school. St. Mary’s Hospital was originally a nunnery, at the east of which is an ancient chapel. The Otter Memorial, situate at a short distance north of the city, is an elegant building of stone, in the collegiate style of the 15th century, intended for and used as a training college for schoolmasters, an institution founded by the late revered prelate, Dr. W. Otter. It was erected during the years 1849 and 1850, from designs by Mr. J. Butler, and consists of a convenient residence for the principal, apartments, for a vice-principal, and accommodation for 24 students; the situation is dry, healthy and pleasant. The principal is the Rev. M. Parrington. A small chapel has been added, to complete the original plan. The site for the college was given by the Bishop of Chichester. A spacious infirmary was built about 1830, in a delightful and airy situation, which has been rendered still more commodious by the addition of another wing, erected by Charles Dixon, Esq., of Stansted House, in this county, and is termed “the Dixon Wing” There are other schools upon the National plan, supported by subscriptions and benefactions. The Guildhall is an ancient structure, formerly the church of the monastery of the Grey Friars. A Council Chamber or Town House, a large and commodious building, containing a spacious and elegant assembly room; and a common jail, now used as a police station. The is a Literary Society and Mechanics’ Institute (now united), and a Museum, on the same premises. Custom House, Market House, and a large Corn Exchange, with extensive warehouse and granaries attached. The Cathedral forms the principal ornament of the city; it is a noble edifice, in the form of a cross, erected on the site where the church of St. Peter the Great once stood, before the See was removed from Selsey, which took place in 1072. It was first founded at Selsey, in the 7th century, by St. Wilfred; it is a Gothic structure, containing many heraldic and other memorials of departed greatness; in the south transept are some curious historical paintings of the time of Henry VIII. The are monuments of Bishops Sherburne & Storey (1592), Hurdis, and others of later date. The Cathedral has a full chapter establishment, well endowed; the nave was built in the time of Henry I., in the Norman style; the tower and spire, 271 feet high, appear to have been completed in 1270; it may be seen from a considerable distance. Most parts of the noble pile, which is extensive, were finished before 1333; several handsome painted windows, by eminent artists, have been erected of late years. The poet Collins, who died in 1756, was a native of this city, has a monument to his memory by Flaxman; Huskisson has a statue by Carew; Chillingworth, the controversialist, is buried in the cloisters. The Chapter House is a fine building. In 1830 the restoration of the cathedral commenced, and is still continued at intervals; there are some fine oak stalls, and Anglo-Saxon chest in the sacristy, and an exquisite Gothic chantry to St. Richard. The Bishop’s Palace is supposed to have been erected on the site of a Roman villa; it is an ancient structure, with a chapel of the time of Henry VIII., an old hall, a great dining room, and a large kitchen; the palace was repaired in 1800, and contains some pictures and painted glass. The places of worship are the Cathedral and ten parish churches, viz. All Saints or the Pallant, St. Andrew, St. Bartholomew, St. Martin, St. John’s New Town extra-parochial chapel, St Olave, St. Pancras, St. Peter-the-Less, St. Paul, and St. Peter-the-Great or Sub-Deanery; the last, a large and handsome stone church, has been recently erected in West Street, capable of accommodating 650 persons; it is built in the ecclesiastical style of the 14th century, from the designs of Mr. R. C. Carpenter, of London, and under the superintendence of Mr. J. Butler, of this city. This edifice is intended to supply the place of the parish church of Sub-Deanery, or St. Peter-the-Great, which service has been performed in the north transcept of the cathedral. There are chapels for Independents, Baptists, Wesleyans, Calvinists, Unitarians, and the Society of Friends. The Friary Park is a large enclosed piece of ground, occupying a great portion of the north-east quarter of the city, and in early times was the residence of the potent Earls of Arundel, and afterwards the monastery of the Grey Friars, who possessed it until the dissolution of the order, in the reign of Henry VIII. For several years past it has been used for grazing ground by the Duke of Richmond, to whom it belongs, but his Grace has kindly let it to some of the citizens, by whom a handsome subscription has been raised for the purpose of converting it into an archery and cricket ground, and to render it otherwise useful as a place of recreation for the inhabitants. The elective franchise was conferred upon this city by Edward I., and the right of election vested in the corporation; the mayor as the returning officer, and the present Members are John Abel Smith, Esq., and Lord G. C. H. G. Lennox. The London, Brighton and South-Coast Railway passes the city a little to the south, and is a convenient distance fro travellers.

Appledram is a small parish in Box and Stockbridge hundred, rape of Chichester, Westhampnett union, consisting of a rich mould, favourable for the growth of wheat; its area is 1,070 acres; it is bounded on the west by the eastern part of Chichester harbour, on the north by Fishbourne, on the east by Donnington, and on the south by Birdham; the village is 1 ½ miles south-west of Chichester. Here is the principal depot for landing goods at the Dell Quay, intended to supply the city of Chichester, but has been rendered of less importance since the establishment of the Arundel & Portsmouth Canal, and the opening of the South-Coast Railway; the Quay belongs to the corporation of Chichester. The living is a perpetual curacy, valued at £64 per annum, in the archdeaconry of Chichester, and deanery of Boxgrove, in the patronage of the Dean & Chapter of Chichester, and incumbency of the Rev. Henry Smith. The owners of the soil are W. R. Hamilton, G. Bartlett and Charles Crosbie, Esqrs.
