The Hampshire branch was formed in November 1909, with the Marchioness of Winchester as it's first president. The Dorothy Countess of Malmesbury became president in 1919 and remained president till her death on 23rd January 1972, making her the longest serving president for any Red Cross branch. In both 1964 and 1967 the branches districts and boroughs were reorganised. In 1974 the branch boundaries changed, and the Bournemouth and Christchurch districts were transferred to the Dorset Red Cross branch. In 1975 eleven new centres were formed within the branch.
