HADDENHAM (St. Mary), a parish, in the union and hundred of Aylesbury, county of Buckingham, 3 miles (N. E. by E.) from Thame; containing 1545 inhabitants. In 1294, the monks of St. Andrew, at Rochester, obtained a charter for a weekly market to be held here on Thursday, which was discontinued in 1301: a fair was also granted, for three days, at the festival of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. The parish is bounded on the west by the river Thame, and comprises about 3000 acres: the soil is indifferent; the surface is flat, with one or two trifling elevations, and is watered by a copious brook in the southern part. The living is a vicarage, with that of Cuddington annexed, valued in the king's books at £15. 17. 1.; net income, £370; patrons and appropriators, the Dean and Chapter of Rochester. The tithes were commuted for land and money payments in 1830. There are places of worship for Baptists and Wesleyans. The parish contains two mineral springs; and numerous fossils, and skulls of animals now extinct, have been found.
