History[edit]

Newnham Murren is an ancient parish, recorded in Domesday Book as Niweham.[1] The Church of England parish church of St Mary was built in the 12th century.

Newnham Murren was a strip parish: a thin strip of land extending into the Chiltern Hills[2] including part of Stoke Row.

Newnham Murren was made a civil parish in the 19th century, but in 1932 the civil parish was absorbed into the new civil parish of Crowmarsh.[3]
