Islip (pronounced eye-slip) is a village and civil parish on the River Ray, just above its confluence with the River Cherwell in Oxfordshire, England. It is about 2 miles (3 km) east of Kidlington and about 5 miles (8 km) north of Oxford. The 2011 UK census recorded the parish's population as 652.

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.
