Parish History

Oxney was formed as a chapelry in Eythorne, Kent Ancient parish.

In 1800 Edward Hasted in his History and Topography of Kent Volume 9 pp 409-411 describes the parish as small and adjoining St Margaret at Cliffe, Kent ; the church of St Nicholas as "long since desecrated" and the remains forming  a barn.

The chapelry had been associated with manorial land of the Auberville family.

OXNEY, formerly a parish, now annexed to that of St. Margaret-at-Cliffe, in the union of Dovor, hundred of Cornilo, lathe of St. Augustine, E. division of Kent, 5½ miles (N. E.) from Dovor. [1]
