  • HISTORY

    The toponym “Faringdon” means “fern-covered hill.” Claims made by P. J. Goodrich, for example, that King Edward the Elder (reigned 899–924) died in Faringdon are unfounded. In 1218, the town was granted a weekly market, and as a result, it became known as Chipping Faringdon. On Tuesdays, an outdoor market is still held. In 1202, King John founded an abbey in Faringdon (probably on the site of Portwell House), but it was soon relocated to Beaulieu in Hampshire. On his way to London in 1417, the elderly Archbishop of Dublin, Thomas Cranley, died in Faringdon.
