Catherington was originally a civil parish in the Finchdean Hundred and then in Catherington Rural District from 1894 until 1932. In 1932 it was split between the civil parishes of Havant in Havant Urban District and Horndean, with the southern, more urban part joining Havant, and the more rural northern part going to Horndean in Petersfield Rural District.

Catherington is not a very large village and has an approximate population of 3900 (estimated 1998). It has a church, All Saints, in the churchyard of which is the tomb of Admiral Sir Charles Napier (1786-1860) and a monument to another Admiral, Sir Christopher Cradock (1862-1914), as well as the tomb of the actor Edmund Kean (1789-1833).
