In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Eisey like this:

Acres, 1,840. Real property, with Latton, £7, 248. Pop., 193. Houses, 36. It includes the tything of Water-Eaton; and its post town is Cricklade. The living is a vicarage, annexed to the vicarage of Latton, in the diocese of Gloucester and Bristol.
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 Eisey has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of North Wiltshire. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Eisey and units named after it.
