Oxford St Giles

"St. Giles' is a discharged vicarage, valued at £14. 12. 3½.; net income, £160; patrons and impropriators, the President and Fellows of St John's College; the tithes were commuted for land and a money payment in 1829. The church, an ancient structure in the early English style, with lancet shaped windows and a square embattled tower is said to have been built in 1120. A district church has been erected in Summer-town, in the parish of St. Giles." [Samuel Lewis. A Topographical Dictionary of England (1848)]

"SUMMERS-TOWN, formerly a hamlet {in the parish of Oxford St. Giles}, city and county of Oxford, 2 miles N. of Oxford. It is situated on the river Cherwell, and was made a district parish in 1838, when the church was built."  [The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) Transcribed by Colin Hinson ©2003]
