Maugersbury is a village and civil parish in Gloucestershire, England. Situated less than a mile south-east of the market town of Stow-on-the-Wold and approximately 18 miles (29 km) east of its post town, Cheltenham, Maugersbury lies within the Cotswolds Hills and in the Cotswold District. At the 2001 United Kingdom census, the parish had a population of 149.

Maugersbury became a civil parish in its own right in 1866. Prior to that date civil and parish records are more apt to be found under Stow-on-the-Wold.
