Wheatfield is a civil parish and deserted medieval village about 4 miles (6.4 km) south of Thame in Oxfordshire, England.

Wheatfield's name is derived from the Old English for "white field", referring to the ripe crops that the Anglo-Saxons grew on its fertile land.

Few of Wheatfield's buildings remain today except the Church of England parish church of Saint Andrew, the former rectory and the former outbuildings of the no-longer-standing manor house.

For more information, see the EN Wikipedia article Wheatfield. The ownership of both the rectory and the manor house are traced from their beginnings, (Domesday) in the case of the manor house.
