[1] By the time of the Domesday Book of 1086, it was listed as Wicheham. [2] This village was the birth place of William of Wykeham (c. 1320-1404), Bishop of Winchester and Chancellor of England. He founded New College Oxford and New College School in 1379, and later founded Winchester College in 1382. The place name literally means "homestead associated with a vicus (reference to its ancient Roman settlement)." [1]
