The Pubs History

James Goldsmith, was a prominent businessman and landowner in the Milton area of Portsmouth towards the end of the 19th century. He came from a long line of Goldsmiths all with the same christian name who each succeeded each other by taking over the family estate .

Despite the rapid emergence of Portsmouth as a major naval base and urban area, new development largely passed the Milton area by, it remained predominantly agricultural until the beginning of the 20th century, and even now has more of  a village feel than most parts of Portsmouth.The lack of development was largely due to the Goldsmith family who from the 16th century had owned land in the Milton area. The first James Goldsmith was recorded as owning land near Locksway road (Milton road) and Hill Lane (Priory Crescent) in 1750. In 1808 he then acquired Purnell farm, later named Middle farm, which is the today the location of Milton Park. The second of the of the James Goldsmith’s was to acquire large swaithes of land in the 1850’s as he was not keen on the emergence of new urban developments in the area that he lived. At the time of the purchase the land was advertised for urban development, so he effectively put a stop to any urbanisation of the Milton area. He passed away in 1858 to be succeeded by the his son the third James Goldsmith who passed  away in 1911 during the construction of the Shepherds Arms Pub (now called the Shepherds Crook), which he commissioned At the time of the death of the last James Goldsmith, Milton was still very much a village and large parts of the Goldsmith estate were kept as parkland, giving it a much greener feel than the rest of Portsmouth.
