The History InPortsmouth website has been constructed by enthusiastic amateur historians with occasional assistance from the professionals. We have attempted to ensure that all the articles that appear here have been properly researched but we cannot say for certain that they are 100% accurate. Inevitably legend will displace verifiable truth from time to time but hopefully we will make it clear where this is likely to be so.
We are more than happy to receive corrections, additions or comments and for the most part will publish them alongside or even in place of existing articles
