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

CHILTON, a parish in the district of Thame and county of Buckingham; on an affluent of the river Thame, 4 miles N by W of Thame r. station. It includes the hamlet of Easington; and has a post office under Thame. Acres, 2, 080. Real property, £3, 565. Pop., 364. Houses, 70. The property is divided among a few. ...


The manor belonged to the Crokes; and passed to the Carters and the Aubreys. Chilton House has an embattled porch. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Oxford. Value, £67. Patron, S. Ricketts, Esq. The church is good, and contains monuments of the Crokes, and a stone pulpit. An alms-house at Studley, in Oxford, is largely for the behoof of Chilton; and there are other charities, £31. Sir George Croke, the patriotic judge of the time of Charles I., was a native.
