Seacourt


Seacourt

Seacourt is a lost village near Botley in Oxfordshire (formerly in Berkshire). Its name comes from the Old English, and apparently means the homestead of a man called Seofeca [Ekwall, E (1964), "Concise Oxford Dictionary of English Place-Names".] . The village was first mentioned in a charter of 957, and was also mentioned in the Domesday Book, but by 1439 all the houses in the parish except two were ruined and uninhabited [ [http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=62742 Victoria County History, "Berkshire"] .] .

The parish of Seacourt continued in existence until 1900, when it was absorbed into the neighbouring parish of Wytham.

The village site was excavated between 1937 and 1939. [ [http://www.oahs.org.uk/oxo/vol%205/Mitford.doc Report in "Oxoniensia", Vol. 5] ]

Seacourt Farm survived to 1963 [Hanson, J (1995), "The Changing Faces of Botley and North Hinksey, "Robert Boyd Publications] , but nothing remains of the village today, except a few bumps in the fields. The name is remembered in Seacourt Stream, the Seacourt Bridge pub by Seacourt Road, Seacourt Tower and the nearby Park and Ride car park.
