It was at Oath; in this parish, that Guthrum the Dane and his followers were baptized, after having been defeated by Alfred at Ethandune. In 1645, a skirmish took place at Aller Moor, between the forces of the king and the parliament. The living is a rectory* in the diocese of Bath and Wells, value £623, in the patronage of the Master and Fellows of Emanuel College, Cambridge. The church is dedicated to St. Andrew. It is an ancient edifice, and contains a Saxon arch and a monument of a Botreaux.
