ODDINGTON, a parish in the upper division of the hundred of SLAUGHTER, county of GLOUCESTER, 2½ miles (E.) from Stow on the Wold, containing 458 inhabitants. The living is a rectory, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Gloucester, rated in the king's books at £21 7. 1. and in the patronage of the Precentor of the Cathedral Church of York. The church has a Norman door, but the rest of the building is of later date; it has recently received an addition of sixty free sittings, the Incorporated Society for the enlargement of churches and chapels having granted £50 towards defraying the expense. Edward Chamberlayne, an English historian, was born here in 1616; he died in 1703.
