    5 Quickfire New Milton Facts

    1. New Smugglers
      A pretty row of Coast Guard Cottages were built in Barton Lane in nearby Barton on Sea in the 19th century. The armed troops stationed here were a deterrent to try and stop the smuggling that was rife, much of it passing through New Milton.
    2. Poundland
      At the time of the Domesday Book compiled in 1086, ‘Mildeltune’ (meaning ‘Middle Farm’) was owned by Hugh of Port and consisted of 5 villagers, 1 slave, 3 ploughlands, 3.5 acres of meadow and was worth the stately sum of 1 pound.
    3. New Since 1895
      The ‘New’ was added to the name in 1895 after Mrs Newhook opened a new post office. To distinguish it from the post office in Milton Village she named her’s New Milton and the name stuck.
    4. Old Milton
      Despite the ‘new’ moniker, excavations in New Milton have revealed signs of settlement dating back to 9th and 12th centuries.
    5. WWII
      During WWII an army hospital was stationed in New Milton and was used as a transit base for troops heading oversees as well as in the build up to D-Day. The village was targeted three times by German aircraft causing a number of fatalities. The village was also used to house evacuees from London.

    Thank You Over’s

    Darryn and Kyle, the two removal men were just brilliant in carrying out their duties. Nothing was too much trouble. They are an asset to your company and great Ambassadors for your business. My wife and I felt on occasions they went above and beyond the normal service and went out of their way to help ease the process and stress of moving.

    - Andy Cookson – June 2021

    The two crew movers that moved me are exceptional. Polite, hardworking, and professional. Nothing was too much, no problems or complaints. They packed, moved me out, and moved me in. Constantly ensuring everything was where I wanted it and fine tune placement of my items. I could not have moved in without their, and the team at Armishaws efforts. Thank you for getting (injured) me, and my family in our new home safe and complete.

    - Alan Edmunds - June 2021

    Excellent removals experience on a two day local move in Somerset. Despite hail, the removals men did a fantastic job, and kept a sense of humour throughout. Nothing was too much trouble putting things where we wanted them in various sheds when we arrived. Toby and Ben made the experience SO much more fun, and less stressful. Cannot recommend them too highly.

    Early Days

    ‘New’ Milton essentially began life after the arrival of the railway in 1888, however the original manor of Milton was listed in the Domesday Book (1086) as Mildeltune, meaning ‘middle farm” and is certainly much older. At this time it was most likely a scattering of small huts and farms.

    14th Century

    Over's Removals

    By 1303, the settlement had grown enough for Thomas de Chaucombe to gain permission to hold a weekly market and an annual fair on the feast day of Mary Magdalene. Despite his attempts to establish a busy market town, Milton didn’t grow and was most likely superseded by other nearby towns. It wasn’t uncommon around this time for towns to almost go to war over local market rights, as being able to bring trade and commerce to a town decided whether it would survive and thrive or fall into obscurity as Milton appears to have done.

    9th-12th Century

    This original village sat just south of the church. Mounds of earthworks were visible on Moat Lane until 1956 but excavations at this time revealed the ‘moat’ was actually most likely to be traces of these earliest settlements dating back somewhere between the 9th and 12th centuries.

    14th-16th Century

    Between 1365 to 1565 the manor was owned by the Tyrell family, ancestors of Walter Tyrell, the man responsible for the ‘accidental’ arrow shot during a hunting party in the New Forest that killed the rather unpopular King William II, son of William the Conqueror.

    18th Century

    During the 1700s the area was rife with smuggling. Landing at places like Barton on Sea, smuggling gangs would bring goods ashore, travelling close or even through Milton, they would meet their counterparts hidden in the New Forest and the goods be exchanged for cash. Locals at Milton would either be paid off or simply know to turn a blind eye out of fear.

    19th Century

    In 1835, a Church of England school was built offering free education to the village children, it remained until just after the First World War. By 1881 the population had reached 1,489. Things turned around in 1888 when a new railway station was opened in the village. A brewer by the name of Mr. Hugh Wyeth saw a glimpse of the future and what it could bring. He bet big, building a hotel, shop, Milton Hall and generally building his own small town. The gamble paid off and by 1926 ‘New Milton’ was recognised as an urban district. However, after just 5 years the new town was swallowed up again, and in 1932, despite local outcry, it became a borough of Lymington.

    20th Century

    The 1940s saw New Milton hit by the war when the German Luftwaffe dropped bombs on the town, most likely aiming for the water tower. The growing town also had an army hospital and was particularly popular with US airman from nearby Lymington or Holmsey.
