ASHENDON is a parish and small village, situate 7 1/2 miles W. from Aylesbury, in the three hundreds of Ashendon, and union of Aylesbury. The church, dedicated to St. Mary, is an ancient structure, of the early English and Perpendicular orders, comprising chancel, nave, south aisle, and a tower containing three bells. In the interior is a tomb, covered with foliage, on which is a figure of one of the Knights Templars; it is supposed to commemorate Sir John Bugden, of Pollicott. The living, value 70 per annum, is a perpetual curacy, including the curacy of Dorton, in the deanery of Waddesdon, and incumbency of the Rev. Thomas Woodward Gardner; the Rev. Wm. Prichard is resident curate. It is supposed that a battle between Edmund and Canute was fought here, about 1016; but a doubt exists whether this happened at this place or at Ashdown in Kent. The parish comprises 1790 acres; population in 1861, 325.
