Gawcott, lately made a separate ecclesiastical parish, is l 1/2 miles S.W. from Buckingham, and included within the liberty of the Borough of Buckingham. The chapel, dedicated to St. Catherine, was originally built and endowed by John West, a working man of the village, but was taken down, and the present structure erected by subscription, and opened in 1828. The living is a perpetual curacy value 120 per annum, realised by a rent charge on a farm at Adstock, and a small portion of glebe; the Rev. Thomas Clarke Whitehead, M.A., is incumbent.
