Box and Stockbridge Hundred was in the southwestern quarter of Chichester Rape and included the county town of Chichester and a number of surrounding parishes. For want of space, the parish of Up Waltham has been mostly omitted from the map. Tangmere was a detached parish of Aldwick Hundred, located to the south.

The ancient hundred of Boxgrove was listed in the Domesday Book (1086) as comprising nine settlements with 246 households. The settlements were Aldingbourne, Halnaker, Strettington, Runcton, East Hampnett, Merston, Westhampnett and Upwaltham, and Boxgrove village itself had 13 households. (Source: The OpenDomesday website) Not all the places listed above are parishes; some (Halnaker and Strettington) are hamlets within parishes by other names.

The following parishes were located in Box and Stockbridge Hundred:

The three parishes of Chichester listed above were absorbed into the Borough of Chichester in 1896. None has a description in WeRelate, but references to other sources will be found under Chichester.
