Pallant House


Pallant House, No. 14 The Pallant, was purchased by the Parochial Church Council in 1919 for a Men’s Club.  The Rector, Harold N Rodgers, said “an old property, Pallant House, standing in a good garden, centrally and conveniently situated, was bought and the house altered and fitted up at considerable cost as a Men’s Club”.
St. Faith’s Church House had a day nursery on the ground floor from 1970 until 2011.  The first floor houses the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association (SSAFA) Forces Help Havant Division. A room is also available for hiring.  The Parish Office was on the first floor but moved to 2 North Street in 2012.
The file “Havant Houses” in the Havant Museum shows the first recorded occupants of Pallant House as Stevens and Longcroft Solicitors in 1828.  The solicitors moved out into West Street and the 1841 Census shows the occupant as Christopher Stevens who died in 1843. In 1847 a Miss Charlotte Mountain lived there until her death in 1860.  The 1891 Census shows the occupants being the Roffey family – Sir James Roffey died in 1912 and Lady Emma Roffey died in 1914. It was then acquired by St. Faith’s Church in 1919.
