Eisey was an ancient and civil parish in the north of the county of Wiltshire, England. The main settlement was the village of Eisey; in addition was the tything of Water Eaton. In 1896 the civil parish of Eisey was absorbed into the neighbouring parish of Latton, located to its northwest. Water Eaton has been redirected to Latton.

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

"EISEY, a parish in Cricklade [registration] district, Wilts; on the river Thames and on the Severn and Thames canal, contiguous with Gloucestershire, 1 mile NNE of Cricklade and 4¾ NE by E of Minety [railway] station. Acres: 1,840. Real property, with Latton: £7,248. Population: 193. Houses: 36. It includes the tything of Water-Eaton; and its post town is Cricklade. The living is a vicarage, annexed to the vicarage of Latton, in the diocese of Gloucester and Bristol."
