In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Assendon like this:
ASSENDON, a liberty in Pirton parish, Oxford; 4 miles NW of Henley-on-Thames. It has a post office under Henley. A land-spring here breaks out after a run of wet weather; and is so copious as to inundate neighbouring low tracts.
