GREENHAM, a village, a tything, and a chapelry, in Thatcham parish, Berks. The village stands on the S border of the county, near the river Kennet, the Kennet canal, and the Reading and Hungerford railway, 1½ mile SE of Newbury; and is practically, for trade and industry, suburban to Newbury. The tything includes the village and extends into the country. Post town, Newbury. Real property, £5,180. Pop., 1,167. Houses, 272. The manor was given by Maud, Countess of Clare, in the time of Henry VI., to the Knights Hospitallers; and it had a preceptory of these knights. The chapelry is less extensive than the tything, and was constituted in 1857. Rated property, £3,809. Pop., 593. Houses, 135. The property is much subdivided. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Oxford. Value, £130. Patron, the Bishop of Oxford. The church is ancient, and was enlarged in 1825.
