DENHAM is a parish and village in the hundred of Stoke county of Buckingham, 2 1/2 miles N.N.W. from Uxbridge, containing, according to the census of 1861, 1054 inhabitants. The living is a rectory in the archdeaconry of Buckingham and diocese of Oxford, valued in the King's books at 19 9s. 4d.; present net income 782; patron, Benjamin Henry Walpole Way, Esq.; the Rev. Charles Antill Hall, incumbent. The church is a very ancient structure and has been entirely restored and beautified, externally and internally, at a cost of 2,000; it is dedicated to St. Mary and contains many interesting monuments. At the time of the restoration a beautiful representation of the resurrection was discovered under the plaster of the south wall, in an excellent state of preservation, and is now left as a curiosity, supposed to be 500 years old. There is a place of worship for the Wesleyans in that part of the parish called Cheapside. The river Colne and the Grand Junction Canal pass through the parish. Sir William Bowyer, in 1721, gave 30 per annum, with a good house and garden for a master and mistress, for instructing 15 boys and 15 girls; this endowment has been augmented by subsequent benefactions to 67 11s. per annum, and 32 children are now entirely clothed and educated. There is a Girl's School conducted on the British system.
