For more information, see the EN Wikipedia article Islip, Oxfordshire. The first person of note born in Islip was Edward the Confessor (circa 1004–66). The article gives more details about the parish church and about the common field system of crop-growing that existed in part of the parish until the 20th century. This is a very interesting read.
