cliviih, eveiyTue-day aite.no..n ; Jovti-
nian B. Clai ke. n\)\ti.[ Brittaiiia Prima. A Roman military way leads into this county,
polntiiri( towards (Ijch.stei ; and the present tillaseof Dorcliester stands on liie site of the stitiim Duro'
cornov'mm. The Iknield-slreet crosseil the southern part of the county from north-east to south-west. Of
the vicinal ways, the ^keman-streft was the principal; it entered from Buckinghamsliire, at Atnbrosden,
and procieded through Blenheim Park into tjloucestersliire. At the period of the general dissr)liititMi, the
nuini'er of leligious douses in the county, exclusive of tire crlleses at Oxfoul, was about frrty, includmi; hos-
pifaN, &c. The piiticiiral relic erf inona^iic buil(lir>gs is Saint Krideswide abbey church, now the cithedial of
Osfirrd. Amongst the parocliial churches are >ome inteiestitig specimens of Saxon or enrly Nrrrinnn, and
many firre exaninles of Knglish architecture. During the Heptarchy thisdistrict bebmired to .Mercia, and
juffer. d Kieitly from the Danes ; the most ineinorable battles recorrled in the amraU of this county are thrrse
that were foiiLht hitwten tluit pi'opleatid the English, in 914, at Hr)riknortnn (or Hoastnrr ton), in which the
latter were totnlly defeateil — and Iretvveen the Yorkis's and Lancastri.ins,in 14f)9, at Oaneshury, near Banbury,
when the former, Under the Earl of Pembroke, wt re comitletely routed by Sir .lohn Conyers, and the Earl
was made pii»oner. One of the earliest transactioirs coiniected with the ureat CivilWar occurrelat Clialgroye
Field, iti this county, wlien that celt brated patiiot, John Hampden, on the l.itb of August, 1642. appeared la
arnr» to tnfoice the inditia ordirrance, and wirose firm resistance to the arbitrary mea-uresof the court was
the (rrincipai cnuse of the war: and it was on the same sprrt, on the morning of the I8th of Jurre, 1(!43, thut,
at the head of a btrdy of parliamentarians, he attacked Prince Rupert, wlien the former were repulsed, and
the illusti ions Hampden was inortally wounded. Charles e>tablir-iied his court atOxfoid for neatly the einire
dnratioti of the ci»il strife, whence the city became, as it were, a kind of centre of xarlous militrry exploits
that occur red in this and the surronndiirg counties. Oti the 26th of Anril, Woodstock manor- Inm-e. after a
riaornns defence, surrtndererl to the |)arliamentirian forces; and the next day the king left Oxford to
surrender hiin-eif to the Scotrish army hesiegirrg Newark. On the 24ih June, Oxford, which had held out
against Kairfax (or several weeks, suiierrdeied at the king's command. At the time of the rebelliju iu 1715,
several partisans of the Stuail family were seized at Oxf.rd.

Soil, surface, and CLiMATE.-^Tlie soil of Oxfordshire may be considered, for the most part, extremel/
fertile, yii hiing ahun"ant crops of corn and grain : it is naturally (Iry, and entirely exempt from fens, bogs and
staunairt warer obtaitied in
seveial part-. At Nh. to^er, an ochre is f.urrd of a tnost excellent quality. The general aspect of the county
niny I'econ-idered as very pleasing. There are not atiy hrsh hill- excent the Cbiltern lanire; the rest are
only gtnile eminences, which teiid to rliversify the landscape without obsiructini; tillage. Oxfoidshire may
be reckoned a w. ll-wrroded county, exceptmuin the northernmost part ; there is, however, but comparitively
little oak, ami coppices are not numerous; but there are extensive artifici.il plantation*, ornamental to many
localiries. In number, ta-te atid magtrificience, the public and private bnildimts of Oxfoid-hire, may be said
to ri>al airy other countv in England, Middlesex alone excei>ted. Blenheim, the princely seat of the Duke of
Marlborousih, i- well known for its sup« ib mansion and deliahtful grounds. There are many otb( r resl-lences
of the nobiliiy and gentry, of areat beauty and grandeur, both of exierior appearanceand interior dr coration :
amO"g the i)iinci|ral are Ditch ley park, the seat of Viscoutit Dillon ; Nunel atn Courtney, the Earl of Har-
conrt; Wroxtoti Priorv. the Earl of Guildford, &c. The climate of this county is considered as healthful
as that of anv other iir'Ensland, ami the qnicU and limpid streims render the air dear and wholesome. It is
crrlder upon And irearthe Cbiltern hills than in other parts, but not so severe as to effect health; there is
al-OKreaier hunridity at the southern extremity of the county ; and the fiosts are perceived to take effect
sooner in this part, and continue lonuer.

Produce and manufactures.— The svstem of agriculture is in general good; th tt of N"tf"lk is well
under>iiK)d and is in pie^aletrt paciice. On the pr.iss f.rrms much chee-eis made, of a cood quality, though
chieflv of the thin knrd cal'ed 'toastina' cheese. The cows are principally of the old Gloucester kind, and
the South Down slnep, lia»e be^un to exclude the iong-wooHed breerl ; many boars are fed for the purposeof
makiirii brawn arrd sausages, which fmin a consideiahle article of trade at Oxford an-l otln r par:si-f the
county. Much butter is sent to the Lonilon dealers, particularly from the vicinity of Bicester; and around
Thame, many cahes are fatterreii for the same ma ket. The ier^liire; entt-is Oxfordshire near L5iirfiiril, and, pa-sing Witney, falls into the
Thariie.s live ii>ile.s west of Oxford. Tlie Tliaine rises tienr Tiiog, in the ronniy of Heitfi^d, and, cro^sinff
BiKkiii,i;h;'.insbire, tiiurlies the hnrdeis of Oxfttrdsliire atTlianie. Tliere are nunieioiis s»)all sireani«:, ail of
wliifh tall into the rivers bffore-nientioned. Tiie Mt'.DiciNAL springs are nun. emiis, thi n!., with Biiiniiighan, IVlanchentii, Liitrpool, and the Wediieslmry
er of ieemher»
remains the same. The gei^tlenieii at ineseiit sitting for ihe county are Lord Norreys ; George Granville
Vernon Haicouri, Esquire, and Jos.-pli Warner Henley, Esquire. Thereiurn of members to represent the shire
at large, is made fioiu Oxford; and the other polling places, beside that ciiy, are Deddington, Witiiey,
and Ni'tthbed.

Population, &c. — Bv the returns made to Government at the census of 1811, Oxfordshire contained
80, 43f) males, and 81,207 fein lies— total 161,043: exhihiiing an increase over the returns of 18.31, of 9,917
jnhahiiants. The hi iiual value of III ai Proiierty. in this county, as assessed to the Poor Rates, iu 1815,
amounted to £713,147, and in 1841, to £695,752.
