HARDWICKE (St. Mary), a parish, in the union of Bicester, hundred of Ploughley, county of Oxford, 5 miles (N.) from Bicester; containing 80 inhabitants. It comprises by measurement 463 acres, of which 212 are arable, 153 pasture, 88 woodland, and the remainder roads. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the king’s books at £5; net income, £92; patron, B. Richmond, Esq. The church is a small ancient edifice: at the west end is a large mass of tracery, apparently not connected with any design, and probably collected from different parts of a larger building; there are some good specimens of stained glass in the windows, and the appearance of the whole indicates that the structure is only a portion of a more spacious church.
