Hinton Waldrist is a village and civil parish in the Vale of White Horse, England. It was part of Berkshire until the 1974 boundary changes transferred it to Oxfordshire. The village is between Oxford and Faringdon, 9 miles (14 km) southwest of Oxford. The parish includes the hamlet of Duxford.
In 1086 the Domesday Book recorded the village as Hentone, Old English for "high farmstead". In the 12th century the manor passed to the St. Valery family, from whom the village took the second part of its name. In 1332 the manor was acquired by William de Bohun, 1st Earl of Northampton, whose granddaughter Mary de Bohun became the first wife of Henry IV. The manor was subsequently held by John Ramsay, 1st Earl of Holderness, Sir Henry Marten and the Loder family.
