Cogges  Oxfordshire


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

COGGES, or Coggs, a parish in Witney district, Oxford; on the Witney railway, 1 mile E of Witney. Post town, Witney. Acres, 1,820. Real property, with Wilcote, £4, 014. Pop., 714. Houses, 167. The manor belonged anciently to the Arsics; and passed to the Greys of Rotherfield, the Lovels, and the Popes. ...

The manor-house, a building of the 13th century, was changed into a farm-house. A black priory, a cell to Fescamp abbey in Normandy, was founded here about 1100, by one of the Arsics. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Oxford. Value, £120.* Patron, Eton College. The church is an edifice of the 14th century; was built by the Greys; and contains a curious altar-tomb, with a recumbent female figure. There are a Wesleyan chapel, and charities £96.
