The parish of Winslade formerly included the village of Kempshott, which covered an area of 555 acres (225 ha), but was merged with Winslade in 1393.

The earliest mention of the manor of Winslade was made in 1086, when it was held by landowner Hugh de Port. In 1275, Winslade was owned by John de St John for "half a knight's fee" by Alan de Hagheman, who purchased the manor a year later.  In 1316, the manor was passed to John de Knolle, who then granted it to John de Tichborne after his death in 1331. The manor had continued in his ownership by his descendants until 1555 when the manor was sold by William, Marquis of Winchester. William died in the same year he sold it, and consequently the land was passed onto his son Francis of Bolton,  who was fined four shillings (equivalent to £26,700 in 2017) as lord of both Winslade and Kempshott for not attending the court of Basingstoke Hundred in 1560.  It was sold to his overlord, John Marquess of Winchester, two years later, and his descendants continued to hold it until at least 1908.
