Christchurch History Online

Welcome to Xchurch.co.uk!


We have created this site for local people, genealogists and other interested parties so they can get a feel of how Christchurch has developed over the ages. The site contains early 20th century photographs (courtesy of local historian Sue Newman), scans from original guidebooks, maps and much more.

We are always needing new information for the site, so if you have any old pictures, stories, grave inscription transcriptions or any other material please go to the 'Contribute' link on the menu

About the Owner

Xchurch.co.uk is mainly run by me, James Moran. I'm a web developer and owner of Solent IT, a local web designing company based in Christchurch. I have been researching my family tree for the last couple of years and have realised how much local historical information can be.

All donations and feedback are greatly appreciated and help maintain and improve upon the site.

If you'd like to donate some money to the running of the site, please use the paypal link below and many thanks, it will be a great help.
