Sholing, Bitterne, Hampshire


Domesday Book

There appears to be no mention of Sholing in the Domesday Book, at least in that form of spelling. However there is an entry for Hound.

Domesday Book HoundHound was a settlement in Domesday Book, in the hundred of Mansbridge and the county of Hampshire.

It had a recorded population of 23 households in 1086, putting it in the largest 40% of settlements recorded in Domesday (NB: 23 households is an estimate, since multiple places are mentioned in the same entry).

The image is an extract of the Domesday Book, fortunately transcribed for us.

Land of Hugh of Port


Households: 31 villagers. 9 smallholders. 6 slaves.

St Mary's Church Southampton

St Mary's Church, Southampton

Situated in the angle of St Mary's Street and Chapel Road, St Mary's, although outside the town walls, is regarded as the mother church of Southampton. The original church dates back to the Saxon period, the minster at Wic (Hamwic), the forerunner of the medieval St Mary’s, being mentioned in Saxon charters of 713 and 776. St Mary’s was not directly named in the Domesday Book in 1086 but was probably one of the churches mentioned in connection with the manor of South Stoneham. John Leland writing in 1546 repeats a traditional story that the church was completely rebuilt in the 12th century thanks to the efforts of Queen Matilda.

This page is dedicated to Mr Gerry Dutton of Basingstoke whose work on the The North Hampshire Tithe Map Project and the resultant website gave me the inspiration to consider my work on Tithe Apportionment and Maps as a collective as well as the previous thought of only including the work within the relevant One Place Studies or articles. Thank you for the inspiration.

Nursling One Place Study


Nursling One Place Study

A Study of the Parish of Nursling in the County of Hampshire, or sometime known as the County of Southamptonshire.

I refer you to the Millbrook One Place Study in the first instance. That has a lot of the background information which would be repetitive if just repeated here. 

Nursling has also been called Nutshalling as can be seen in the Ordnance Survey drawing held at the British Library. Nutshalling is circled in blue. The nearby Grove Place is circled in green, the seat of Sir Charles Mills. Shirley, in the adjacent parish of Millbrook is circled in orange.
