In his book ‘A Topographical Dictionary of England’ published in 1848, Samuel Lewis says of Fringford:
FRINGFORD (St. Michael), a parish, in the union of Bicester, hundred of Ploughley, county of Oxford, 3¼ miles (N. N. E.) from Bicester; containing 390 inhabitants. The living is a rectory, valued in the king’s books at £12. 16. 0½., and in the patronage of the Crown: the church is an ancient structure in the Norman style, of which the chancel has been rebuilt.
Things have changed somewhat since then and there are now around 600 people living here, and the rectory is now worth a bit more!
We have a church, a pub and a school but no shops.
Events are held in the village regularly and run by the PCC, Church Restoration Fund Committee and the Village Hall Committee.
