The value of property studies of a considerable time span is undisputed and yet such investigations are rare. Keene's Survey of Medieval Winchester is a notable exception. That project focused on the medieval period and ended in 1550 and so remained divorced from the present experience. This thesis brings the study of property histories into immediate relevance by bridging the early modem and modern period and by formulating a blueprint methodology for the study of property histories. The methodology has been tempered by application to a sizeable case study: all the properties in Winchester High Street. These tenement histories form an appendix. This study has great relevance to the study of other local and urban historical environments. Winchester High Street was the backbone of Hampshire's county town, both economically and topographically. The interrelationship between its structures and their use has been explored using a range of methodological approaches. The successful linkage of primary source material has established shifting occupational and spatial trends over a long time span.
