View by J. King of the coast at Yarmouth in the Isle of Wight. Yarmouth is situated on the western side of the Island at the mouth of the River Yar, and it is from this location that the name derived. Yarmouth is relatively small and is almost an island being surrounded by the Solent to the north, the Yar to the south west and marsh land to the south and east. It was originally known as Eremuth or Ermud which means ‘muddy estuary’.
