A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY

Minster Lovell, known by the early 19th century for the picturesque riverside ruins of its medieval manor house, lies in the Windrush valley 3 miles north-west of Witney and 12 miles west of Oxford. By the early 13th century the parish formed a detached part of Chadlington hundred, presumably reflecting early tenurial links; certainly in the 15th and 16th centuries Minster Lovell manor included holdings in Chadlington, Shorthampton, and Chilson, though no pre-Conquest connections have been traced. The place name, recorded in 1086, derived probably from a late Anglo-Saxon minster on the site of the present church, and the suffix Lovell, from the chief landholding family, was added from the 13th century. The ancient parish remained unaltered in 1991; it included the small hamlet of Little Minster immediately west of Minster Lovell village, and in the late 1840s the new settlement of Charterville was established in the parish's southern part by the Chartist leader Feargus O'Connor.
