Other names by which Tingewick, Buckinghamshire has been known in the past


Tingewick, Buckinghamshire in John Bartholomew's "Gazetteer of the British Isles" (1887)

Tingewick, par. and vil., in co. and 3 miles SW. of Buckingham, 2178 ac., pop. 787; P.O.

Tingewick, Buckinghamshire in "A Topographical Dictionary of England" edited by Samuel Lewis (1848)

TINGEWICK (St. Mary), a parish, in the union, hundred, and county of Buckingham, 2¾ miles (W. by S.) from Buckingham; containing 911 inhabitants. A market was formerly held here on Tuesday, granted in 1246 to the abbey De Monte Rothomago, in Normandy, to which the manor had previously been given by the family of Finmore. The living is a rectory, valued in the king's books at £12. 16. 3.; net income, £260; patrons, the Warden and Fellows of New College, Oxford: the tithes were commuted for land in 1773. The church is evidently of great antiquity; the south doorway exhibits a handsomely-carved Norman arch: the tower, which is built from the ground, and the chancel, were both erected by William of Wykeham. A stone over the central window, in the south battlement, contains a very old and curious inscription. The building was completely restored a few years since, by the parish, at an expense of £500. Charles Longland, in 1688, bequeathed property now producing £11 per annum for the poor; and the Rev. Francis Edmonds, in 1751, endowed a charity school with £15 per annum.
