Oxfordshire Genealogy


"The County of Oxford, call'd by the Saxons [Oxnafordscyre, Oxenfordscyre, and] Oxenfordschyre, commonly Oxfordshire; did, as I observ'd before, belong to the Dobuni, [and by its situation (particularly to the north-east, at Otmore and the adjacent places) exactly answers the original of the name Dobuni, as being low and level."
from Camden's Britannia, 1586
