Wikipedia, viewed 3 Nov. 2016 (Bournemouth; large coastal resort town on the south coast of England directly to the east of the Jurassic Coast; historically part of Hampshire, it joined Dorset with the reorganisation of local government in 1974; first mentioned as "La Bournemowthe" in 1406; from the latter half of the 16th century "Bourne Mouth" was preferred, sometimes shortened to Bourne; in the late 19th century "Bournemouth" became predominant, although its two-word form appears to have remained in use up until at least the early 20th century; with Poole to the west and Christchurch in the east, Bournemouth forms the South East Dorset conurbation; the River Stour forms a natural boundary to the north and east, terminating at Christchurch Harbour, while the River Bourne rises in Poole and flows through the middle of Bournemouth town centre, into the English Channel)
