Tockenham is a village and civil parish in north Wiltshire, England. The village is about 1.2 miles (1.9 km) east of Lyneham and 3 miles (5 km) southwest of the town of Wootton Bassett (now Royal Wootton Bassett). The parish includes the hamlet of Tockenham Wick. The population of the parish in the UK census of 2011 was 237.

The Domesday Book of 1086 recorded 17 households in the area.

At Tockenham Wick, in the north of the parish, is a substantial manor house dating from c. 1600, now Grade II* listed. Meadow Court, Tockenham, is a country house built once in 1630 and again in 1730, the latter designed by the potter-architect Nathaniel Ireson (1685–1769).

The manor house at Tockenham is Queen Court Farmhouse in the northwest of the village. The present building is from the 18th and 19th centuries and stands on the site of an earlier moated house.
