HAMPTON-POYLE (St. Mary), a parish, in the union of Woodstock, hundred of Ploughley, county of Oxford, 3¾ miles (E. by S.) from Woodstock; containing 141 inhabitants. The living is a rectory, valued in the king's books at £6. 2. 8¼.; net income, £250; patrons, the Warden and Fellows of Queen's College, Oxford. The church is a small edifice of great antiquity: in the north aisle is a piscina, and in the north wall an elegant arched recess, in front of which are two shields, that probably contained a stone coffin and two stone effigies, now in the south aisle in a neglected state; the east window is enriched with good tracery.
