Village of Shabbington

Shabbington is a village and also a civil parish within Aylesbury Vale district in Buckinghamshire, England, about 3 miles (5 km) west of Thame (in Oxfordshire), and 7 miles (10 km) WSW of Aylesbury. The village is 2,152 acres (9 km²) in size.

The village is of Saxon origin although evidence has been found of scattered Iron Age and Roman Farming. It was first recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086, when it was called Sobintone which is Anglo-Saxon for Scobba's Estate. The village was known by several names interchangeably until the 19th century when the present spelling was adopted officially.

The earliest record of any manor of the village dates back to 1299, when a large property was given to the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, however this was not where the Manor Court was held.

The medieval church in the village is dedicated to St Mary Magdalene; however the church records only date from 1714, making historical information about the village harder to come by. For a more detailed history of the village go to the History section.
