In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Thame like this:
Thame.-- market town and par., Oxfordshire, on river Thame, 15¼ miles E. of Oxford and 48 miles NW. of London by rail, 5229 ac., pop. 3267; P.O., T.O., 3 Banks, 1 newspaper. Market-day, Tuesday. Thame dates from Roman times, has remains of an abbey founded in 1138, and contains the house in which John Hampden (1594-1643) died.
A Vision of Britain through Time includes a large library of local statistics for administrative units. For the best overall sense of how the area containing Thame has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of South Oxfordshire. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Thame and units named after it.
