ADSTOCK is a parish, in the hundred and union of Buckingham, from which town it is situate 4 miles S.E., and 3 N.W. of Winslow. There is a tradition that in the time of the plague, Buckingham and Winslow being much infested with it, a market was held here for some time. The church is a very ancient structure, dedicated to St. Cecilia, with square embattled tower and two bells. Some of the windows are very handsome. The chancel contains a monument to three successive rectors of the same family, named Thomas Egerton, who held the living from 1587 to 1720, since which time, (including the present rector, recently appointed,) there have been only four incumbents. The last rector, the Rev Adam Baynes, held the living nearly sixty years. The benefice is a rectory, in the archdeaconry of Buckingham, and patronage of the Bishop of Oxford, gross annual value, near 300; present rector, the Rev John Hart. There is a Parochial School, and the Wesleyans have a chapel here. A bequest of 2 acres of land is for the repairs of the church; the poor's land comprises about 3 acres. The population of the parish in 1861 was 385; acreage, 1130.
