Weston Turville is a village in Buckinghamshire,
England. It is located in the Aylesbury Vale, about a mile and
a half south east of Aylesbury. There's not alot of
information on the Net about this village. The village name
'Weston' is Anglo Saxon in origin, and means 'western estate'.
In the Domesday Book of 1086 the village is recorded as
Westone. The affix 'Turville' was added later, referring to
the lords of the manor in the 13th century and to
differentiate the village from other places called Weston.
The church, St Mary the Virgin, dates from the 15th Century, I
believe, but should not be confused with St Mary the Virgin in
Turville in the Chiltern hills near the Borders with Oxfordshire,
which was the church and village used for the filming of The Vicar
A notable resident of the village in the 16th century was Dr
John Colet. It is after him that the John Colet School in nearby
Wendover is named. Weston Turville was also at one time, one of the
main places where Aylesbury ducks were bred.
