Chilcomb (VB113) is a relatively unpopulated parish apart from Bar End and Winnal that became part of the expansion of Winchester from the late 19th Century.  The village is 2 miles SE from Winchester with the A31, and later the M3, running through it.  The River Itchen, the Itchen Naviagation canal and flood meadows are in the west.  A detached part of the parish is at Longwood Warren to the south-east.  The registration district was Winchester from 1832 to 1894 following which the separate parishes of Chilcomb Within was created until 1902 and Chilcomb Without until 1932, after this both reverted back to Winchester until 1974.  Among the local family names appearing across the centuries are COLLINS, CORDERY, FOSTER, and HOOKER.
