1) This was originally a private residence sited on the west side of Windsor Terrace and dating to the 18th century. In c.1843 the mansion became a hotel (image 1). It was here that General Rosas, the fugitive dictator of Argentine, first came when he landed at Southampton on 28 April 1852. The east wing of the original house was incorporated into the rebuilt hotel in the later 19th century, and the whole later became a public house (image 2), also called the Windsor. It was demolished in 1987 to make way for the Marlands Shopping Centre.
2) In the 1880s this name appears to have been given to a house on the south side of Manchester Street at the east - or Above Bar - end. It is named as such in the 1884 street directory with Timothy Falvey as occupier. Falvey had moved to Windsor Terrace by the time of his death in 1889.
