Gazetteer of the British Isles (Edinburgh: Bartholomew, 1887). John Bartholomew
Ventnor, watering-place and par. with ry. sta., Isle of Wight, on SE. coast, 11 miles S. of Ryde and 90 SW. of London - par., 458 ac., pop. 5739; town, 215 ac., pop. 5504; P.O., T.O., 2 Banks, 3 newspapers. Its beautiful situation amid the picturesque scenery of the Under cliff, and its genial climate, have made Ventnor one of the most popular of English health resorts. So late as 1830 it was only a small fishing village. It has an esplanade, pier, recreation ground, public gardens, &c., and a good beach for bathing. Near the town is the National Consumption Hospital. John Sterling, whose biography is written by Carlyle, resided and died at Hillside, Ventnor.
