Scope and Content

Holton is a parish to the east of Oxford. In 1964, it was united with the parish of Waterperry, and then in 1987 it was also united with the parishes of Albury and Waterstock. Since the Rector of this combined benefice lived at Holton, some of the records listed below concern the other three parishes too.

The greater part of the parish records of Holton were deposited with the Bodleian Library in 1964, 1979/80 and 1982. Further records were deposited with Oxfordshire Archives in 1980, 1984, 1993 1994 and 1996, and given the respective Accession Numbers 1943, 2252, 3688, 3754, 3838 and 4125. Appendices list which documents came with which deposit, and provide a concordance for the old and new reference numbers for the documents.

Recatalogued by Robin Darwall-Smith in August 1996.
