Hethe 1863 Dutton, Allen & Co Directory listing
HETHE, or Heath, 5 miles N.E. of Bicester and 17 N.E. from Oxford, is a
large village and parish in the hundred of Ploughley and union of Bicester,
containing, according to the census of 1861, 442 persons. The Church,
dedicated to St. Edmund and St George, formerly belonged to the monastery of
Kenilworth, and consists of nave, south aisle, and chancel, with a very
ancient font; the nave has a clerestory, and is in the perpendicular style;
the mode in which the ancient chancel has at different periods been repaired
tends rather to disfigure than restore it; at the west end is a semi-Norman
window. The living is a rectory, in the deanery of Bicester and patronage of
the Lord Chancellor, annual value, £164 ; the Rev. F, Salter is rector. The
Wesleyans have a place of worship here, and there is a neat chapel for Roman
Catholics standing just out of the village; priest, the Rev. Joseph Robson.
Here is also a National School. The upper and lower parts of the village are
separated by a small stream which flows into the river Ouse.
