Sevenhampton is a village in Gloucestershire, England. The Church is dedicated to St Andrew. The name of the village is believed to be derived from an older name, Sennington, which was still in use into the early modern period.

A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Sevenhampton from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"SEVENHAMPTON, popularly Sennington, a parish, with a village, in Northleach [registration] district, Gloucester; on a head-stream of the river Coln, 5¾ miles E by S of Cheltenham [railway] station. Post-town, Andoversford, under Cheltenham. Acres: 2,600. Real property: £3,145. Population: 543. Houses: 113. The manor belongs to W. L. Lawrence, Esq. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Gloucester and Bristol. Value: £50. Patron: alternately, F. Craven, Esq., and W. Morris, Esq. The church is Norman and good. There are a Baptist chapel and a national school."

Sevenhampton was located in the northwest corner of Northleach Rural District from 1894 until 1935. In 1935 the parish was abolished and the area transferred to the parish of Sudeley.
