WAREHAM is a municipal borough, with a station on the Southern railway, 121 miles by rail and 111 by road from London, 17 south-east of Dorchester, 4 north-west from Corfe Castle, 8 south-west from Poole, 14 south-west from Bournemouth, 10 north-west from Swanage and 6 south from Bere Regis: it is the head of a union, county court district and petty sessional division, in the Southern division of the county, hundred of Winfrith, rural deanery of Purbeck, arch-deaconry of Dorset and diocese of Salisbury. The town is situated between the rivers Piddle and Frome, occupying rising ground near their outfall into Poole Harbour, and consists of four spacious and open streets, intersecting each other at right angles, its area being nearly enclosed by high artificial ramparts of earth, and covering about 100 acres; these ramparts are of remote antiquity, supposed to be of British origin, and now form a healthful recreation ground for the inhabitants. Wareham was a Roman settlement (as was Stoborough), and figures largely in history from the time of Canute to that of the Commonwealth. The space between the embankments and the present inhabited part has been converted into gardens, which are let by the lord of the manor at moderate rents. A substantial stone bridge of six arches, rebuilt about 1777, crosses the Frome from South street, and connects the county with the road leading to the Isle of Purbeck. There is a salmon fishery in this river, which, under more stringent regulations, has considerably revived. In 1762 the greater part of the town was consumed by fire, but the three churches fortunately escaped. It is a borough by prescription, and possesses several charters, under one of which, granted by Queen Anne in 1703, the government of the town was vested in a mayor, recorder, and six capital and twelve assistant burgesses, but under the provisions of the Municipal Corporations Act, 1883 (46 and 47 Vict. C. 18) a new charter was issued, July 16, 1886, and the Corporation now consists of a mayor, four aldermen and twelve councillors. The borough returned two members to Parliament from the reign of Edward I, until the passing of the reform Act, 1832 (2 and 3 Wm. IV c 45), which reduced the representation to one only, at the same time considerably enlarging the parliamentary boundaries, and under the provisions of the Redistribution of Seats Act, 1885 (48 and 49 Vict. C 23), it was merged in the Eastern division of the county

 The town is lighted with gas by a private company and supplied with water from Worgret, 1¼ miles to the west of the town.

Wareham formerly consisted of portions of three parishes : Holy Trinity Within, Lady St. Mary Within and St. Martin’s within, but by Local Government Board Order No. 31,566 now forms the parish of Wareham Lady St. Mary, the former divisions still existing for ecclesiastical purposes only. By the same Order, part of Lady St. Mary civil parish and a part of Holy Trinity civil parish, not included in the reconstituted Lady St. Mary parish, was added to Arne.

The churches of Holy Trinity and St. Martins are both standing, but neither of them are used for public worship; the latter, now covered with ivy and forming a very picturesque object in North Street, is only used for the burials of the members of one or two families. There are some traces of other parochial churches having existed in former times, called St. Michael, St. Peter and St. John, but the parishes have been consolidated with the others, and the only evidence of their existence is the name in the King’s Books, which subjects the rector to a charge of first-fruits, tenths and land-tax.

The church of St. Mary is an ancient edifice of stone, consisting of chancel, clerestoried nave of four bays, aisles, with south chapel, western porch and an embattled western tower containing 8 bells: the chapel in the south aisle is said to be the burial place of the Anglo-Saxon kings, and here reposed for three years the remains of Edward the Martyr, who was murdered at Corfe Castle by Elfrida; his bones were then removed with such pomp and ceremony by St. Dunstan and a numerous train of monks to Shaftesbury: the front, of the 11th century, is of lead, hexagonal in form, mounted on a solid base of Purbeck marble, and on the sides are carved figures, representing the Twelve Apostles, in high relief; in 1841 a fine sarcophagus, of Purbeck marble , was discovered in the chapel, which is supposed to have been the receptacle for the body of Edward the Martyr; many tombstones with singular inscriptions were found at the same time, but they were mostly destroyed or built into the walls of the naïve: a small portion of the old structure has been converted into a vestry: there is a monument to the Rev. John Hutchins, author of the “History of Dorset”, who was formerly rector here, and is buried in the south chapel; in St. Martin’s churchyard is a cross, erected in memory of those who fell in the Great War, 1914-18; the nave of St. Mary was rebuilt in 1841-2 and the church restored in 1882, under the direction of Messrs. Counson and Son, architects, of Winchester, at a total expenditure of about £2,000; in 1893-4 the chancel was rebuilt at the cost of Mrs Rodgett, of Sandford House; the organ, the gift of Mrs Rodgett, stands in an organ chamber built at the cost of James B.Dugdale esq., J.P. at whose expense also the roof of the nave was restored; seven of the windows are stained; the church seats 750 persons. The register dates from the year 1762. The living consists of the rectories of Holy Trinity, St. Martin and St. Mary, with the perpetual curacy of Arne annexed, joint net yearly value £638, with glebe and residence, in the gift of Capt. Guy Montagu Marston R.N.,J.P. and held since1888 by the Rev. Selwyn Blackett, prebendary of Shipton-in-Sarum Cathedral, rural dean of Purbeck, chaplain to Wareham Poor Law Institution, and surrogate. The Congregational chapel, founded in 1670, seats 470; the Wesleyan chapel, in North street, 250; and the Unitarian chapel, South street, erected in 1830, 250. 

A cemetery of about one acre, adjoining the church of St. Mary, was formed in 1880 and enlarged by 1 ¼ acres in 1914, the whole costing £1,600; it is under the control of a Joint Burial Committee.

The Town Hall and Corn Exchange, in the market place, is of red brick with stone dressings, in the Gothic style, and includes a tower with clock; it is used not only by the Corporation, but for public meetings of the town and neighbourhood, and the sittings of the petty sessions of the borough and county justices.

The Oddfellows’ Hall, in West Stret, was erected in 1889, and will seat about 200.

There is a voluntary Fire Brigade, consisting of a captain and ten men.

The clay mines and quarries of Messrs. Pike Brothers at Church Knowle are many acres in extent, and thousands of tons of potters’, fire, pipe, tile and other kinds of clay are annually sent to all parts of the world; the railway laid down from the pits by Mr W. J. Pike with a gradual incline to the boats at the mouth of the river Frome, conveys the clay at a very trifling cost; the offices are at Creech; there are also extensive stoneware pipe works belonging to the Sandford Pottery Co. Limited, whose manufactures have a large sale both in London and in the country. The market day is Thursday. There are two fairs, held on the third Thursday in April and second Thursday in September, both for cattle, which are generally well attended; there are also two cattle markets, held on the first Thursday in February and first Thursday in March.

There is an almshouse for six men and five women, endowed by John Streche, esq. and rebuilt in 1741 by Henry Drax and John Pitt esqrs. Now transferred to new buildings, erected in 1908, at a cost of £4,119 at Westport, adjoining the town; each of the eleven almspeople receive seven shillings weekly, besides new clothes and beef and coals at Christmas. There are also various charitable bequests, including a sum of £915 in consols, left in 1809 by Stephen Bird; also a charge of 20s. yearly on the site of the “King’s Head” Weymouth, left by Bernard Michel in 1646; a charge of £3 3s. yearly upon lands at Bere Regis and Bloxworth, under the will of Dame Elizabeth Holford, 1717; a sum of £333 in Consols, left by George Richard Robinson of London, in 1850 and another sum of £789 in Consols, under the will of S.Giles; also a sum of £505 in Consols, left by Charles James Card esq in1903; there is also a sum of £222 in Consols, for the benefit of the inmates of the almshouses, as well as Harbin’s charity of £10 yearly and Pitt’s charity of £13 yearly, left originally for educational purposes, but now applied in aid of the local poor rates, under the Education Act of 1902.

The Priory of SS. Mary, Peter and Ethelwold, founded by the Earl of Leicester in the reign of Henry I, as a cell to the convent of St. Benoit-sur-Leyr, is still standing; it was originally founded by St.Aldhelm, who died A.D.709: in the year 1880 a double piscine, of Purbeck Marble, octagonal in form, was discovered in the wall on the south side of the chancel.

Sandford the residence of the Rev. Samuel Edward Valpy Filleul M.A. about 2 miles north, is an elegant mansion of white brick with stone dressings, in the Elizabethan style; it occupies an elevated site over looking Poole Harbour and Brownsea Island, and is well sheltered by fir plantations, and surrounded by an estate of 1,500 acres.

The principal landowners are Capt. Guy Montagu Marston R.N., J.P. who owns the manor, the Earl of Eldon, Capt. Hon. Reginald Alymes Ranfurley-Plunkett-Ernie-Erle-Drax D.S.O. Leonard Sturdy esq. Alan Sturdy esq. and Mrs Filleul.

The area of the municipal borough and Lady St. Mary civil parish is 247 acres of land, 3 of water and 3 of tidal water; rateable value, £7,341; the population in 1911 was 2,002, including 85 inmates and 8 officials in the Poor Law Institution, and in 1921, 1,994.

The population of the ecclesiastical parish in 1911 was 3,039.

SWINEHAM, 1 mile east-by-north and North and South Bestwall, were, by Local Government Board Order, transferred from East Stoke to St. Martin Parish in 1888

STOBOROUGH LIBERTY, in Holy Trinity parish, is on the south side of the Frome, over which is a substantial stone bridge to Wareham.

The area of St. Martin civil parish is 8,330 acres of land, 55 of water, 168 of tidal water and 1,099 of foreshore; rateable value, £14,821; the population in 1911 was 506.
