Croome D'Abitot is a village and civil parish, which shares a joint parish council with Severn Stoke, in the Malvern Hills District in the county of Worcestershire, England. The parish church of St Mary Magdalene is situated in the grounds of Croome Court.
Known today as Croome / Croome d'Abitot / Earl's Croome / Earls Croome, it is listed within the hundred of Oswaldslow in the historic county of Worcestershire as being land owned by the bishop of Worcester (St. Mary) in both 1066 and 1086. The first Norman sheriff of Worcester Urse d'Abetot, controlled many lands of the church. Through his daughter Emmeline, Urse is an ancestor of the Beauchamp family, who eventually became Earls of Warwick.
