Lymington, a borough in Hampshire, England. It is seated on a river of its name, a mile from the sea, and the harbour will admit vessels of 300 tons burden. The chief trade is in salt; and it is much resorted to in summer for sea-bathing. Near it are the remains of a Roman camp; and in 1744 nearly 200 lbs. weight of their coins were discovered here in two urns. It is 18 m. S. S. W. of Southampton, and 88 S. W. of London.
