Ewelme is a village and civil parish in the Chiltern Hills in South Oxfordshire, 2.5mi northeast of the market town of Wallingford. The 2011 Census recorded the parish's population as 1,048.To the east of the village is Cow Common and to the west, Benson Airfield, the north-eastern corner of which is within the parish boundary.The solid geology is chalk overlying gault clay. The drift geology includes some gravel.ToponymThe toponym is derived from Ae-whylme, Old English for "waters whelming". It refers to the very fine spring just north of the village, which forms the King's Pool that feeds the rapidly flowing Ewelme Brook. The brook flows past Fifield Manor and then through nearby Benson before joining the River Thames. It formed the basis of Ewelme's watercress beds, which provided much local employment until well into the 20th Century. Before inclosure in 1863, there was no clear boundary betweem Ewelme, Benson and Barrick Salome where they shared large open fields. Exelme Parish was within the Hundred of Benson in 1086, later renamed the Hundred of Exelme.
