Hob Uid: 330679
Location :
Gloucestershire
Cotswold
Sezincote
Grid Ref : SP1725031010
Summary : Site of deserted Mediaeval village and church.
More information : (SP 1725 3101) Church (NR) (Site of) (1)

(Area SP 171310) The site of Sezincote is clearly identified with
Sezincote House (2). Listed by John Rous in his 15th cent.
attack on depopulation, it was enclosed by 1486 (2,3)

Sezincote found employment for twelve plough teams by 1086 AD.,
but in 1638, following enclosure and depopulation, the church
was reported to be in ruins, and in 1751, the benefice was
formally amalgamated with Longborough. (4)
No traces of desertion are to be found within the grounds of
Sezincote.

The OS published siting for the church lies beneath recently
constructed tennis courts. According to Lady Kleinwort, wife of
the landowner, nothing of the church was found during their
construction, and she has doubts as to whether the church stood
there, though she knows of no documentary evidence to indicate
the spot it did occupy. It is not shown on an estate map of
1704 (a). (5)

SP 170 310. Sezincote listed in review of deserted medieval villages in Gloucestershire. (6)
