East Wellow, Hampshire

The father of Florence Nightingale (1820-1910) owned Embley Park (or House) , off the A31, near East Wellow, West of Romsey. She lived there from 1825, age 5, and used it as her base until 1896. The house survives, but is not open. She is buried in St. Margaret's churchyard, East Wellow, under a plain monument with only the initials F. N. and dates. There is a memorial tablet, perhaps in the Church.
