E. by N.) from Bicester; containing 319 inhabitants. This parish, which comprises 2268a. 1r. 37p., is supposed to have derived its name Stratton from a Roman road or street, an opinion strengthened by the discovery of Roman coins and arms in the vicinity. The living is a perpetual curacy; net income, £89; patrons and appropriators, the Dean and Canons of Christ-Church, Oxford. The church contains a monument to Admiral Sir John Borlase Warren, Bart.
