Long Crendon

Long Crendon is a village and civil parish within Aylesbury Vale district in Buckinghamshire, England, about 3mi west of Haddenham and 2mi north-west of Thame in neighbouring Oxfordshire. The village has been called Long Crendon only since the English Civil War. The "Long" prefix refers to the length of the village at that time, and was added to differentiate it from nearby Grendon Underwood, which used to be known as "Crendon". This name is Old English and means Creoda's Hill (in 1086 it was listed in the Domesday Book as Crededone).History"Crendon" was the caput of the feudal honour held by Walter Giffard (died 1102), created Earl of Buckingham by William the Conqueror. The Manor in Long Crendon was once a great building that housed the later Earls of Buckingham and over the years the various manorial estates in the village have passed through the hands of the Crown, Oxford University, the Earls of March and the Marquis of Buckingham. The latter is now the Lord of the Manor of Long Crendon.
