Catisfield has a long and rich history.

Originally a hamlet, Catisfield is first mentioned in the Pipe Roll of the Bishop of Winchester in 1210 and mentioned in 1279 in the tithing of North Fareham, when Catisfield, Dean, Pokesole, Cams and Bedenham had been added to the Hundred of Fareham.

There is little documented history relating to Catisfield; amongst the records that are available there is mention of it as a small hamlet sited on the crest of Titchfield Hill at a road junction overlooking the Meon Valley. Before the 19th century Catisfield was at the junction of historic routes to Botley, Stubbington, Titchfield, Southampton, Fareham and Portsmouth. It is said that Samuel Pepys probably rode through it on his travels as did Margaret of Anjou on her way to Titchfield Abbey at the bottom of Fishers Hill from Southwick in 1445, for the reconfirmation of her marriage in France to Henry VI
