The parishes of North and South Hinksey lie on the southwest side of the Thames, across from Oxford (which is on the northeast side of the river). The ancient county boundary followed the river, so Hinksey was in Berks until 1974, but is now in Oxfordshire (but "filed" by Combs &c. in Berkshire, the "county of record" at the time).

North Hinksey, "a parish in the hundred of Hormer, county of Berks, 1-1/4 mi. west of Oxford... The living is a perpetual curacy, in the archdeaconry of Berks, and diocese of Salisbury, endowed with private benefactions, royal bounties, and parliamentary grants, and in the patronage of the Earls of Abingdon and Harcourt alternately. The church is dedicated to St. Lawrence. Both North and South Hinksey were chapelries in the parish of Cumner till separated from the mother church, to which they still pay sixpence a year, called "smoke money." This place, sometimes called Ferry Hinksey, is situated on the western bank of the Isis.

South Hinksey, also a parish in the hundred of Hormer, lies 1-/12 mi. south of Oxford... The living is a perpetual curacy, in the archdeaconry of Berks, and diocese of Salisbury, also endowed with private benefactions and royal bounties... in the patronage of the Earl of Abingdon. The church is dedicated to St. John. In a field north of the church is a conduit, erected in 1620, for supplying the city of Oxford with water. (Lewis, 1830)
