Itchen Stoke was an ancient parish in the Bountisborough Hundred which included the very ancient parish of Abbotstone. It was also a civil parish in the rural district of Alresford from 1894 until 1932. In 1932 it was merged with the parish of Ovington which it faced across the River Itchen to become Itchen Stoke and Ovington. In 1974 the combined parish was absorbed into Winchester District (or the City of Winchester).
