The villages of East and West Lockinge are just outside Wantage to the E. The village in its present form is a creation of Lord and Lady Wantage c.1860. Their home was Lockinge House - originally of 1730 but greatly enlarged by Lord Wantage. This was demolished in 1947, and the church of All Saints' in East Lockinge stands next to its site. All Saints originally had a single nave and chancel to which a W tower was added in 1564. In 1853 a new nave was added to the S, the old church then becoming the N aisle. In 1886 another aisle with an arcade of oak was added to the S. There is a 12thc. N doorway and a plain font.


In 1066 and 1086 the manor was held by Abingdon Abbey, being assessed at 10 hides in 1066 and at 6 hides and 1 virgate in 1086. 1 hide of this land was held from the abbot by Gilbert, and this included a church with half a hide. This manor remained with the abbey until the Dissolution. A second manor was held by Siward in 1066 and by Hubert from Henry de Ferrers in 1086. This was assessed at 10 hides at both dates.
