Owlswick, Buckinghamshire

Owlswick is a hamlet in Buckinghamshire, England, about 3 miles E of Thame and 4 miles SSE of Aylesbury. It is part of the civil parish of Longwick-cum-Ilmer and is in the ecclesiastical parish of Monks Risborough.

The district is well to the south of the Danelaw, but a man of Danish origin may have come south and settled here.
