Deddington - at one time Daedintun - means ‘the place of the people of Daeda’, who was probably an early Saxon lord.

This website is an historical archive of published and unpublished books, articles & general information since Daeda's time indexed under the topic headings below. In addition there are short cut tabs to the contents of the Parish Archive, Census data and a Gallery of images at the top of this page.
