From Kelly’s Post Office Directory of Sussex, 1938 (pp. 296)

NEW FISHBOURNE is an ecclesiastical parish, at the head of the eastern branch of Chichester harbour, on the road from Chichester to Portsmouth, 1 mile west from Chichester, and has a halt on the motor rail service between Portsmouth and Chichester; it is in the Chichester division of the county, hundred of Box and Stockbridge, rape, petty sessional division and county court district of Chichester, and rural deanery, archdeaconry and diocese of Chichester. Water is obtained from the Chichester Corporation Works, and is laid on to practically all houses, and the village is lighted with electricity. The church of SS. Peter and Mary is of stone, in the Early English style, and has a belfry containing one bell: there are 140 sittings. The register dates from the year 1589. The living is a rectory, net yearly value £339, with 1½ acres of glebe and residence in the gift of The Crown, and held since 1912 by the Rev. Neville Frederick Shaw M.A. of Magdalen College, Oxford. A church room was erected in 1905. There is a Methodist chapel. The Rector’s trust account, a sum of £100 in Consols, which produces £2 18s. 4d. yearly, is for the benefit of the poor of the parish. The ownership of the land is divided. The soil is rich loam; subsoil, clay and gravel. The land is chiefly used for grazing. The population in 1931 was 425.

Under the West Sussex Review Order, in 1933, part of New Fishbourne was transferred to Chichester and part to Funtington.
