"MARSTON, a par. in the hund. of Bullingdon, co. Oxford, 1¾ mile N.E. of Oxford, its post town. It is situated on the river Cherwell, which forms part of the boundary of the parish. The inhabitants are chiefly engaged in agriculture. The ancient seat of the Crokes is in this parish, where the treaty for the surrender of Oxford to the Parliamentarians in the reign of Charles I. was negotiated. It is now a farmhouse. The meadows on the banks of the river Cherwell are luxuriantly rich. The living is a vic. in the dioc. of Oxford, val. £195. The church is a neat structure dedicated to St. Nicholas. The interior contains two broken crosses. The parochial charities produce about £39 per annum. There is a parochial school for both sexes." [The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) Transcribed by Colin Hinson ©2003]
