Emsworth History

Emsworth was founded as a planned village around 1215.  The name Emsworth was probably once Emel’s Worth.  A Worth being an enclosure like farm or hamlet surrounded by a palisade.

Emsworth began as a Saxon village and at first it was linked to the settlement of Warblington.


Althought Emsworth started as a small settlement, it soon grew larger and more established.  By 1239 Emsworth was granted the right to hold a market which further highlighted it’s importance within the area.
