Claydon House, the seat of Sir H. Verney, Bart., was rebuilt in the time of George II., by the second Earl of Verney, in a style of great magnificence; but soon was severely injured by the Baroness Fermanagh; yet retains some features of its original splendour. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Oxford. Value, £540.* Patron, Sir H. Verney, Bart. The church stands close to Claydon House; and has brasses of the 16th century, an alabaster tomb of Giffard, and many monuments of the Verneys, including one to Charles I. 's standard-bearer at Edgehill. Verney's alms-houses have £16 from endowment; and other charities £65.
